If there’s one thing cakers do well, it’s steal. When we taste something we like, we immediately try to duplicate it at home. In the coming weeks, I’ll post homemade recipes for an Orange Julius, Nuts n’ Bolts, and a few more.
In most of these copycat recipes, cakers will take extreme and sometimes unusual shortcuts when it comes to ingredients. This makes us feel superior to the people the recipe originated from. "Ha, ha, pilgrim woman," our internal caker voices say. "Look at you cutting up all those apples for your pie when you could've used Ritz crackers." (Not that pilgrims had Ritz crackers back then, but you get the point.)
Quick and Easy Skor Bars are another example of a copycat recipe that involves some weird stuff. In theory, Saltine crackers shouldn't end up tasting like Skor bars. But, oh. They do. The woman or man who invented these deserves a Caker Honour of Distinction.
1 column saltine crackers (I used a few more)
½ pound butter (1 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
1 package chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
Heat oven to 400°. Lay saltine crackers in rows on foil-lined baking sheet sprayed with Pam. Boil butter and sugar for 3 minutes, stirring occassionally. Pour over crackers. Bake for 6 minutes. Sprinkle pan with chocolate chips immediately after taking it from oven, spreading chips as they melt. Cool in fridge. Peel off foil and cut into pieces.
