I’m not sure who invented this recipe, but my mom made it quite a few times when I was younger. Bake sales, bringing treats to school, these were always very popular and everyone loved them. When my mom taught me how to make them I could not believe three ingredients were all you needed to make one of the best dessert bars I’ve ever had.
What’s in them:
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 bag of Skor bits/chips (or 6-7 Skor bars, broken into tiny bits)
- 1 bag of regular Ritz crackers
What you do:
If you have any pent-up aggression, this is the dessert for you. You take the bag of Ritz out of the box, keeping them in the sealed bag, and crunch them up into small pieces. Not large pieces but not a fine dust either, manageable little chunks.
I personally like using the packaged Skor bits/English Toffee better, but after going to 4 stores and not finding any we used regular Skor bars. The added chocolate was also nice so it worked out. Take about 6 Skor bars and break them into tiny “chip-sized” pieces. A meat tenderizer works pretty well.
In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until well blended.
Press into a greased pan (seriously, grease the pan. I can’t stress this enough)and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees
While still warm cut the bars. I found it easier to cut them in the pan while warm, cool them in the fridge and then remove them from the pan as they can be a bit crumbly while still hot.
These really are incredibly tasty, despite having so few ingredients. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
