  • Club crackers
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oleo
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Butter a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Place layer of club crackers over bottom, leave whole.  Bring next five ingredients to a boil.  Boil for five minutes, stirring frequently.  Pour over crackers in pan.  Place second layer of crackers on top.  Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips until smooth, about one minute in microwave.  Spread over crackers.  Refrigerate until firm.  Cut in small bar-shaped pieces.

Variation: melt caramels with one to two teaspoons milk and pour over second layer of crackers before spreading peanut butter and chips on top.
