During the holidays, I got to try a great homemade candy. I was told it was homemade kit-kat. Now I don’t know that it tastes anything like kit-kat but I do think it might be homemade kit-krak. 🙂 You just want to keep eating more and more of it!!!! I had to ask for the recipe and Kimberly was happy to help me out. Her friend had actually made it, but Kimberly managed to get me the recipe!
I finally decided to make it this week. It is pretty simple to make, although it take a little bit of time. And it is VERY good. Once again, I don’t think homemade kit-kat is the right name…but I’m going to call it homemade kit-krak. Since I’m addicted to it, I won’t be sharing any of mine with you, but I will pass along the recipe! Thanks to Kimberly and Annie for the recipe! Annie posted the recipe also here on her blog. (Apparently this comes from Paula Deen!)
75 club crackers (Almost a full box)
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (from about 14 graham cracker sheets)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup butterscotch-flavored morsels
In an ungreased 13×9″ baking sheet, put a layer of club crackers. Cover the entire base (you may need to cut some crackers to fit).
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, then add the graham cracker crumbs, the brown sugar, the milk and the white sugar.
Boil the mixture for 5 minutes (starting the timer the moment you start to see bubbles) and stir the entire time. Remove from the heat, and spread half of the mixture over the crackers already in the baking pan. Place another layer of club crackers over the butter mixture. Return remaining half of the butter mixture to the heat for under one minute to get it flowing again.
Spread the remainder of the butter mixture over the second layer of crackers. Add a final layer of crackers over the top.
In a small saucepan, melt the peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch morsels together, then spread this mixture over the third layer of crackers. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Cut into bars and store in the refrigerator. (If you can manage to not eat all of them! Better yet, share with friends or serve at a party so you don’t consume all of the homemade kit-krak yourself!)
