Yield
Makes 2 dozen.

These cookie bars have four decadent layers--enough to satisfy any sweet tooth.

How to Make It

Line the bottom of a buttered 13"x9" baking pan with a single layer of crackers; set aside. Melt margarine in a heavy saucepan; add sugars, graham cracker crumbs and milk. Heat over medium-high heat until sugars dissolve, stirring often; spread over crackers in pan. Arrange another single layer of crackers on top; set aside. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan; heat over low heat until melted, stirring until smooth and creamy. Spread over crackers; set aside until firm. Cut into bars to serve.

Nothing special about this recipe. It is easy to make but the filling is way too sweet. Just doesn't come together. Definitely chill them.

I made these for a bake sale because they looked quick and easy to make, and they were. However, I noticed the chocolate layer was a bit soft, so I strongly suggest keeping them chilled in the fridge so the chocolate doesn't melt. They were a big hit and many asked for the recipe, so I call that a successful recipe.

The bars ended up very dry and crumbly. They fell apart except for the top chocolate binding holding the top crackers together. I am all for the salty/sweet combination but the dry Club crackers did not do justice to that theme.
