Crunchers are a treasure! ! Buttery layers of crackers, caramel, peanut butter, butterscotch, brown sugar AND peanut butter that’ll knock your socks off!
These little treasures are a cross between a candy and cookie. Oh, man are they delicious. Really. Really!!! If you try only one new recipe this year, take my advice, make it this one. I think you’ll be very happy over this little decision 🙂 I’ve read that these are the most popular recipe on Pinterest. Honestly, I have no idea if they are or aren’t. They may well be one of the tastiest recipes on Pinterest.
Just an FYI: I bought a 16-ounce box of Club Crackers and used a little less than 2 sleeves…. of course, I may have snacked on a few!!!
- 80 Club Crackers
- 1 Cup Butter
- 2 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
- 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar Firmly Packed
- 1/2 Cup Whole Milk
- 1/3 Cup Sugar
- 2/3 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 Cup Butterscotch Chips
- Line a 9X13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving an extension of foil on either end. Line the foil with 1 layer of club crackers, cutting to fit if necessary.
- In a heavy bottom large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Moderate heat and reduce as needed so mixture doesn't stick to the bottom and mixture doesn't boil too hard (this can cause the butter to separate). Remove from heat and spread half of the butter mixture evenly over crackers. Place another single layer of crackers evenly over butter mixture, cutting to fit if necessary. Spread remaining butter mixture evenly over crackers. Top evenly with remaining crackers.
- In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. Melt over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over top of crackers. Cover, and chill for at least 1 hour. Lift foil overhang and remove bars from pan. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

Made these for a party – they were delish. When I was to the point in the recipe with the graham crumbs, butter etc and it said to bring to a boil for 5 minutes – my mixture was a thick glob and there was no way it was going to boil – did I do something wrong? Also my layers did not stick together well (I’m guessing because I didn’t let it boil!) I will make these again so any suggestions will be appreciated.
These Crunchers are amazing!
Can they be frozen?
Yes! I Wanted to see if, after they were frozen, they still had their crunch. I’m happy to say they were still wonderful!!
Hi Kathleen, these are called kit kat bars in my neck of the woods.
Yes they are DELISH!!
These look ab-so-LUTE-ly delicious and delectable–reminds me of the addictive saltine toffee on which I really can’t stop snacking. I’m so glad I ran across this on photograzing, thank you for sharing! My jean size thanks you less, but I’ve told it not to be rude.
Not even 24 hours ago I declared I wouldn’t be making neighbor gifts but you may’ve just changed my mind. I like the new blog formatting too.
