Monkey Bars

These. Are. Awesome. I can't possibly show you in words or photos how good these taste. My friend, Pam, introduced me to this recipe and I now make them every Christmas; often filling multiple tins with these mouth-watering, melt in your mouth, bars. Great gifts for teachers, friends hosting parties, or any other person lucky enough to cross your path if you're willing to share.

These are my Kryptonite. In fact, I think I'm going to rename them just that. Kryptonite Bars. Be warned.

Kryptonite Bars

1 sleeve Premium Plus Soda Crackers (I use Whole Wheat)
1/2 lb. butter (plus butter for pan)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 bag semi sweet mini morsels

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease cookie sheet with butter. Line sheet with parchment paper ensuring that edges of cookie sheet are also lined (I usually let paper sit higher than the sheet itself).

Cover parchment paper with single layer of crackers - edge to edge. Heat butter and sugar on high on stove in saucepan.

Boil three minutes - stirring constantly! Pour very hot mixture over crackers and spread.
Bake five minutes. Remove from oven and immediately cover with chocolate chips; spreading quickly as chips melt. Cool slightly and put in fridge.

Let harden and peel paper off back. Break up into pieces. Store in fridge or freezer.


  1. I'm sorry, but since I'm watching my weight and trying to exercise more I will NOT be making these. Will NOT.
    I may just make them to give away as gifts, but I won't be tasting them. Well maybe just to make sure they taste good before gifting them, but that is all I will allow myself.
    Unless of course they are as good as you say....
    oh no!!! I'm going to make them!!!!! hellllppppp.

  2. See, this is why I use whole wheat crackers. I can convince myself that they're good for me. Yeah. Nice try. Sorry to pass on the addiction!

  3. lol...keep em coming! I don't care. This is why I exercise. So I can eat this stuff!
