No-Bake Twix Bars

This recipe came in a bound collection of favorite recipes which was a wedding present from a few friends. {Thanks, again!!} It is a delicious version of "Twix" bars. I don't think I've posted it before, so I figured I would share the recipe. It's pretty fun, quick, and easy to make.

Ingredients
1 c graham cracker crumbs
1/2 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c margarine
1/3 c. milk

Club Crackers
2/3 c peanut butter
1 c chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate chips)


Instructions
  1. Butter a 9x13 pan and line with a layer of Club crackers.
  2. Boil the graham cracker crumbs, white sugar, brown sugar, margarine, and milk for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour over the crackers and add another layer of Club crackers.
  4. Melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips together. Spread this mixture over the crackers.
  5. Chill until firm and then cut into bars.

I don't cook/bake/buy desserts too often, but these are definitely one of our favorites! :)

Oooh I love this! I like how it's no bake as well since we don't have an oven. Ovens aren't common in the Philippines since everything can be cooked on stove tops or open fire...

It probably took 15 minutes, not including clean-up. Even the food processor was easy to clean up since it was just crumbs, but you could also crumble the grahams with the ole whack-a-plastic-sack method too. :)

Technically it takes a few hours to chill before cutting, but you can speed that up using the freezer. Plus, they're not bad if you eat them before they're chilled, they just don't hold together quite as well.

I have a similar one...I put any kind of graham cracker on the bottom of a jelly roll pan, than boil for about 5 min. 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 cup margarine. Then this gets poured over the layer of graham crackers. Then top this with more graham crackers. No crumbs. This also would be good with a chocolate drizzle on it, too. Joan
