I made these but used Reese peanut butter chips and mini semi-sweet choc chips. I put the peanut butter chips on first and put back in the oven for 1 min to make sure they melted. I spread the peanut butter chips and then added the semi-sweet chips. Again I put them in the oven for about a minute and then spread the chocolate.
Tried a "smore-like" variation.... Used graham crackers, then put on mini marshmallows (again back in the oven for about a minute) then added milk chocolate chips and put in the over for another minute then spread the marshmallow/chocolate mixture around. Kinda sticky and maybe not as pretty as the other, but it was yummy!!
Divine! So easy! Addicting! I love that this is a quick, kid friendly dessert for my egg-allergic son. We make these often.
Like everyone said, these are very addictive! I had to make another tray just because I kept eating from the one I was planning on giving away. I didn't use raisins or sprinkles because I didn't have any. I used bittersweet chocolate chips, chopped walnuts and the toffee bits. Tastes just like butter toffee. I can't believe that these were made using saltines! Easy to make and a big hit with everyone! Thanks for sharing Rita.
