Kit Kat Bars

A few weeks ago, we had a number of different issues (a steam pipe burst, electrical outage, among other items) arise on campus on a weekend.  To have a series of issues during a normal workday is not very exciting, but when we need to bring the entire facilities and maintenance staff in on a weekend to work on these issues, and they do it with smiles on their faces, it becomes a different kind of adventure.  I wanted to make sure our staff knows how much we appreciate when they take on these concerns, so I decided to make some snacks for them.  I made the crusher cookies that I posted about last fall, but also found a recipe for Kit Kat bars in the Moss Heaven A Taste of Iowa cookbook and wanted to bring it together.  Note: I only had chocolate graham crackers at my house, so that’s what I used — hence the really dark brown filling layers.

Kit Kat Bars

2 c graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1 c margarine
1 c brown sugar
Waverly crackers

Mix the first five ingredients well.  Bring to a boil and boil five minutes, stirring constantly.  Place a layer of the Waverly crackers in an unbuttered 9×13 pan.  Pour half of the boiled mixture over crackers.  Arrange a second layer of crackers over the top of this.  Pour rest of the boiled mixture over crackers.  Add a third layer of crackers.  Melt together:

1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c butterscotch chips
2/3 c peanut butter

Spread over top of cracker layer.  Cool and cut into bars.  Makes 48 bars.
