Crunchers


One of my relatives used to make these for Christmas when I was little and I loved sneaking them throughout the day. The sweetness and little bit of salt from the crackers makes such a yummy treat. I love that these come together fairly quickly and there is no baking involved! I saw a recipe for them a couple years ago on pinterest and was so excited to make them for myself (as opposed to sneaking them off cookie trays three at a time during our Christmas celebration). 

1. You'll need Club crackers, 1 cup butter, a sleeve of graham crackers, brown and white sugar, butterscotch and milk chocolate chips, and peanut butter.


2. Line a 9x13 pan with foil making sure it extends on both sides. This helps get the crunchers out when they are all done. Line the pan with a layer of Club crackers, breaking to fit if needed. 

3. Melt butter in small saucepan. Add a sleeve of crushed graham crackers, 1c. brown sugar, 1/3c. sugar, and 1/2c. milk. Bring it to a boil over medium heat and let boil for 5 minutes while stirring constantly. 

4. Spread half of mixture over the first layer of crackers. Place another layer of crackers on top and spread the remaining butter and sugar mixture. And then one more layer of crackers. The original recipe calls for 80 club crackers, but I've never counted. I use less than a box and that's all I need to know when I go grocery shopping. :)

5. In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips over low heat. Stir constantly until mixture is melted. Spread over crackers and refrigerate until hardened.
