This Club Cracker Caramel Bars Recipe with caramel and chocolate is one of the best combinations and when you add some salt, the recipe becomes irresistible!
These club cracker caramel bars are what I remember my aunt calling “Rickety Uncles” when I was young but I think I might have mixed them up with another recipe in my young mind. These bars are easy to make and delicious any time of the year.
Start by making two cups of graham cracker crumbs. This is about two sleeves of graham crackers. I used my Kitchen Aid Food Processor. If you don’t have a food processor, put the graham crackers in a gallon sized zip top bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.
Next, cover the bottom of a jelly roll pan with club crackers and set aside. Make the caramel sauce, pour it over the crackers and spread to coat.
Top the caramel with another layer of club crackers. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in the microwave and stir to combine. Pour over the crackers and spread it out.
Allow the bars to cool and set before cutting into pieces.
I was babysitting my sister’s kid’s while editing these photos and they wanted to watch what I was doing. When they saw the pictures of the bars, they made a joint decision that we should immediately make them again. Try bringing these Club Cracker Caramel Bars to your next get together and watch them fly off the plate! They are simply irresistible!

What size box of crackers. How many crackers? Thanks
I believe you need about 40 crackers for each layer so 80 crackers in total. There is enough in a 13.7 oz box.

I made these using a similar recipe. The sauce ended up soaking the bottom layer of crackers; I don’t think that they were meant to do that. I noticed my recipe call for ‘milk’, not evaporated milk,. Would that have made the difference?
That definitely would make a difference in the recipe. Evaporated milk is concentrated milk with about 60% of the water removed from it.

My caramel sauce was not pourable, I had to spoon and spread it on. I’m wondering if this is normal?
It is pretty thick. I use a spatula to get it out of the pan and spread on the crackers.
Kathleen Welsh says
There is no direction for use of the vanilla in the recipe, I assume it’s the caramel sauce preparation?
Yes, you stir it in after you remove the caramel sauce from the heat. Sorry about that!
I am confused by the butterscotch chips do you mean the chocolate chip style ones or the hard candies? Loved your photos!
Yes, they are like chocolate chips. Best of luck! ~Tonia
What size pan is a jelly roll pan?
