"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."

"I have used a 9x13" pan and made 2 layers instead of 3. When I remove from oven I sprinkle 1 cup choc chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips and chopped walnuts. Then stick back in oven for 1-2 minutes. YUM_YUM"

"These are delicious! I had a little room left in the pan after making my layers of crackers, and I just broke crackers into thirds to fit into the available space. I will make these again and again!"

"This was the biggest hit at a family reunion that I went to this weekend. The kids called them Twix Bars. I would definitely make them again! Be sure to generously butter the bottom of the tin foil before layering."
