Homemade Skor Bar Recipe

 

I found this recipe on one of the forums on Canadianparents.com

Homemade Skor Bar

Soda cracker or Breton, or Melba toast, or crack wheat crackers (any type of cracker with no flavor to it – avoid Ritz)

1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven at 400F (I use my toaster oven).

In a pan (I use my toaster oven pan (10X8),place cracker one next to the other to cover all the bottom of the pan.
In a small saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and vanilla.
When brown sugar is melted, pour over the crackers and place in the oven for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, the caramel should be bubbling hard.
Remove from oven. Turn off oven. Pour chocolate chips over and place in the hot oven for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove and using the back of a spoon, spread melted chocolate chips over caramel and crackers.
Place in fridge for at least one hour. Score your pan in 24 pieces.
Place in the fridge until very cold. Serve cold and keep in the fridge.

If you are using a bigger pan: remember butter and brown sugar should always be in equal amount…. 1 cup butter for 1 cup brown sugar…
The vanilla stay the same.

This recipe can be made ahead of time and frozen between layers of wax or parchemin paper.
This recipe cannot be left at room temperature too long (hot Summer day)the chocolate will melt….

From the Mouths of Babes….

So I was attempting a new salad recipe the other day (barley & black quinoa) and my 5 year old walks into the kitchen and asks what I’m doing. Upon hearing that I was trying a new recipe he says:

“Mommy will I like it or will I say I like it, then go spit it out in the bathroom so I don’t hurt your cooking feelings?”

Le sigh.

Quote of the Week

“First, the National Football League locks out its players. Then, the National Basketball Association struggles to come to an agreement. Now, “Friday” has been pulled off of YouTube. Why can’t we all get along?”
