"I made this for a baby shower i was throwing for my cousin. Since i was so wrapped up in making sure everyone had seats, drinks, food, etc., i was last to get a plate to eat. There wasn't a single crumb left in the dish!!! Those ladies devoured it & it is a pretty big dish so it must've been good...but i won't know personally til i make it again. :("

"These were really yummy, big hit at work, but the layers separate/crumbled for me too. Also had a problem because I used wax paper and didn't spray it with non stick spray or anything so it stuck to the bottom. Nobody cared though because they were so tasty."

"Have made it twice, everyone loves it. It's better with no butterscotch chips, use all chocolate."

"Love, love love. I will definitely make these again. Love the sweet/salty/crunchy result, and they aren't sickeningly sweet.

I used round crackers, but will probably use club crackers next time, like another reviewer suggested.
One reviewer thought they were very crumbly. That wasn't the case for me, and I wonder if the crumbliness was from using too many crackers.
I decreased the butterscotch chips to 3/4 cup and increased the chocolate chips to 1 1/4 cups, because I don't like too strong of a butterscotch flavor. And I used crunchy peanut butter since that's what I had on hand."

"This was ok i thought it was a little hard to layer evenly and they crumbled when i cut them. So they tasted pretty good but weren't nice to look at."
