Homemade Kit-Kat Bars

I made these bars not too long ago, and they were pretty good! The caramel layers were gooey and chewy, the club crackers added the necessary classic “kit-kat crunch” and the chocolate tied everything together.  Very satisfying and so simple to make!

Homemade Kit Kat Bars

75 club crackers
1 c. butter
2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
½ c. whole milk
⅓ c. white sugar
⅔ c. creamy peanut butter
½ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ c. butterscotch chips

Line an ungreased 13×9 inch baking pan with 1 layer of crackers, cutting to fit.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour half of the butter mixture over crackers. Place another layer of crackers evenly over butter mixture. Pour remaining butter mixture evenly over crackers. Top with remaining crackers.

In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips. Melt over medium low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over crackers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Cut into bars and store into refrigerator.

  1. Oh m y, I absolutely love kit kat bars but never knew how to make them, until now. I love this recipe. If I had my way I would make them now lol, but I will definitely make these this week. Great post.

    • Great question! There is a little less “crunch” because you use club crackers instead of thin wafers. But the bars still taste very good overall.
