Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Christmas Crack
Okay so I totally renamed these, but they are a lot like the Christmas Crack I made last year but this one has layers and peanut butter chips! Plus I really like asking people if they want some crack, try it you will like it too! lol
The original recipe is here http://picky-palate.com/2010/10/18/chocolate-peanut-butter-and-caramel-club-bars/
If you are looking for something easy to make, salt and sweet and really good you have to try these! The original recipe was made for an 8×8 pan but the night I wanted to make these Mike was in bed and I couldn’t find my 8×8 (he put it somewhere) so I altered the recipe so I could make a 13×9 pan. Which really once you try these you will be glad you made a 13×9 pan size! Also, I think mine have more caramel in them than the original recipe… but what could be bad about that?
Now comes the chips!
Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate
3 sticks butter
1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 bag peanut butter chips
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips, melted in microwave
Line a 13×9 baking pan with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
Place club crackers in the bottom of an 13×9 inch baking pan to form a bottom “crust”. Sprinkle 1/2 bag of peanut butter chips on crackers.
Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium high heat. Stir for about 4 min until smooth and the creamy caramel forms. (see picture above) stirring constantly for 4 minutes, until bubbly, smooth and creamy caramel forms. Pour 1/2 of the caramel over the peanut butter chips. Add another layer of the crackers over the caramel, then rest of the peanut butter chips and rest of the caramel. Top with a final layer of crackers and spread with melted chocolate.
I put them in the fridge overnight and pulled them out and cut them in the morning. You don’t have to put them in the fridge but I thought maybe they would cut easier.
