Hello! I’m excited to share my first guest post here on Michelle’s Party Plan-It. My name is Cheryl and I am the owner of Moms & Munchkins – a blog filled with activity and party planning inspiration for all ages. Today I’m sharing a delicious recipe with you but I must warn you that it is highly addictive. If you’re looking to shed a few pounds before the Christmas season, this isn’t the recipe to help you meet your goals. If your diet is sitting on the sidelines until after the holiday season, then grab a napkin for the drool and let’s start talking about chocolate!

Candy Bar Caramel Crunch
This Candy Bar Caramel Crunch is easy to make and it’s always popular at parties. I was digging into it a little too much yesterday so I sent the majority of it with my husband to work and he said that it disappeared quickly. He did come home with a tummy ache though so I’m not sure how much he actually shared.
1 large cookie sheet
Non-stick Cooking Spray
- 1 sleeve of unsalted soda crackers
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar
- 1 ½ cups unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup crushed candy bars of your choice
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Line the cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place a single layer of crackers (top side up) on the greased cookie tray.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, bring the brown sugar and butter to a boil (about 3 minutes in the microwave but you could also do this part in a pot on the stove).
- Stir well, add vanilla and stir well to mix.
- Evenly pour sugar mixture over crackers.
- Bake in the oven for 5 minutes (the surface will start bubbling).
- Remove from oven and, while still hot, sprinkle top with chocolate chips. Let stand for 5 minutes and then use a spatula to spread melted chocolate evenly over surface.
- Sprinkle crushed candy bars over top.
- Refrigerate until hardened. Break into pieces to serve.
