Kit Kat Copy Cat

This bar is supposed to be like a fake Kit Kat. I don’t think it tastes a ton like Kit Kats, but I had numerous people at a party this weekend tell me that it’s actually way better, so… that’s ok then!

Just your standard party goings-on going on...

Ingredients:

  • 72 Ritz Crackers (about 2 1/2 sleeves)
  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (1 1/3 sleeves, crushed)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment or non-stick foil. I think foil works a bit better for this because you can shape it and have it stay in place. Put a layer of Ritz crackers across the bottom and set aside.

In a pot on the stove combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugars, butter, and milk over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour half the mixture over the Ritz in the dish, then put it back on the stove over low heat while you put a second layer of Ritz over the first.

Sugar layer one, Ritz layer two.

Pour the second half of the sugar mixture over the second layer of Ritz, then top with a third layer of crackers.

In a separate saucepan, combine the butterscotch and chocolate chips with the peanut butter over low heat. Stir and continue to cook until smooth and melted. Spread evenly over the top of the Ritz.

Let cool at room temperature for half an hour or so, and then refrigerate until the top is firm.

Solid!

Remove from the dish, peel off the foil or parchment, and cut into bars.

This was a grand party treat, but would also be a good contender for a “sit home and eat intense amounts of junk food alone” thing. It’s also hefty enough that, on the way down to the party, it was somehow setting off the “Your passenger needs to put their seat belt on!” alarm in my car.

Getting ready to travel.

Mmm chocolate…
