  4. Put the second layer of crackers on top and pour over the remainder of the graham cracker mixture. Spread out evenly over the crackers.

Continue microwaving and stirring for additional 30-second intervals until the chocolate and butterscotch melts and the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Recipe Notes

Sharon’s Expert Tips:

  • I used crunchy peanut butter because that’s what I had, but creamy will work too!
  • I used Keebler Club Crackers.
  • The hardest part of this entire recipe is spreading the graham cracker mixture over the first layer of crackers. An offset spatula works best for this.
