    These are delicious, but you have to be careful when making the layers not to burn your fingers with the caramel. I will be making these again soon for an upcoming bake sale. They are kind of like a Twix candy bar, with the buttery cracker, caramel and chocolate topping.

    they are wonderful and I put them in the oven at lowest temperature so the chocolate chips melt in order to smooth them out easier.

    I made these bars with Graham Crackers instead of club crackers, and sprinkled chopped walnuts on top of chocolate.Excellent bars.

    These are so delicious! I brought them to a women's function and one lady told me they were the best bars she's ever had! I would stir frequently though while making the caramel instead of "occasionally" so it doesn't stick.
