Mock Skor Bars - Yummy Dessert for a Crowd

Updated on October 25, 2012
5 stars from 3 ratings of Mock Skor Bars

This is a fabulous, easy recipe, that I started making back in University 20 years ago!

It only has 4 ingredients, so is a success even for the non-bakers out there! It is great for taking to potlucks, or to give as hostess gifts if packaged properly. Once cut up, one recipe makes a generous amount. They are quite sweet, so can be cut small. Make sure to keep them cool, so the chocolate doesn't melt. I like to store them in a metal tin with parchment paper to keep the layers from sticking. Don't let the soda crackers in the ingredients throw you off. They honestly taste like genuine Skor bars!!

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Depends on how you cut them. 40 pieces.

Ingredients

  • 24 salted soda crackers, like Premium Plus
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Melt butter in saucepan over medium high heat.
  3. While butter is melting, cover baking sheet (9x13) with Parchment paper to ease clean up. Line crackers on paper so they are touching,covering the entire surface. I sometimes use the whole sleeve of crackers (about 30).
  4. Add brown sugar to melted butter. Bring to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes stirring constantly.
  5. Pour over crackers. Try and get it to all the corners, but it will spread out in the oven. Bake in the oven on middle rack for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove tray from oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top. Return to oven a couple of minute, just until chocolate is melted and can be spread with a spatula. If left in too long, the chocolate can seize up and is not spreadable. Spread chocolate evenly over entire cracker/caramel mixture.
  7. Let tray cool- can be put in refrigerator to speed this step. Slide parchment paper onto cutting board, and cut into small squares. Store covered in a cool place, or in the fridge
Line the baking sheet with parchment.  Crease the paper at the edges to hold in place.  Lay out the crackers- this is a whole sleeve.
