Weird recipe

A few days ago I remembered these odd little cookies my mom used to make. I asked her for the recipe--she hadn't made them since my brother and I were kids, but she found it. They're not really cookies, not really candy.

42 soda crackers
1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
6 oz. chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips

Put the crackers in a greased jelly roll pan. (Note: use the jelly roll pan. If you use a cookie sheet, the crackers float around and you have an interesting mess. :))

Melt the butter and brown sugar, boil for 3 minutes, until foamy and thickened.

Spoon it over the crackers and bake at 400 for 5 minutes.

Take out of oven, sprinkle with chips, return to oven for 1 minute. Spread the chips over the crackers. Wait until cool and break apart.

I think I may have cookied the butter and brown sugar longer than my mom did, hers ended up more like caramel and mine are more toffee-ish. But I like toffee :).

Dan didn't like them because of the butterscotch chips, it would probably also be good with white chocolate, or using all chocolate.

So, anyone else have any insane childhood favorite recipes? :)

Hey, that`s brilliant! I may have to secure supplies and try those myself. :)

Those sound scrumptious. I may have to try them!

My Mom used to make these no-bake chocolate cookies that were very good. I wonder if she still has the recipe.

Oooh, Mars Bar Slice. It was pretty much rice bubbles mixed with melted Mars Bars + butter and set in the fridge. Also this apricot slice that I used to call Chuck Slice, because it looked like, well, someone had vomited on it. But damn it was tasty. Blended apricots and coconut on top of a moist biscuit base. Mmm.

Oh yeah, and then melted milk chocolate smoothed over the top of the Mars Bar slice. Mmm.

That sounds good. I'll have to try that sometime.

I used to make sticky buns when I was in junior high, but I can't remember the recipe now.
