This candy tastes just like Skor or Heath candy bars. I adapted this recipe from "At Home with Family & Friends" cookbook from Cornerstone Television and also from a recipe my Aunt Rhoda often made. I used Matzoh crackers since I had some on hand and it tasted even better than the saltines that this recipe usually calls for! You may also substitute semi-sweet chocolate. This candy makes a great hostess gift or thank you gift.
