Twix bar recipe, as promised!

Several posts ago I mentioned that I would post the recipe for homemade Twix bars if they were good. Yes, they were REALLY good. However, they are best served cold since the caramel gets soft when warm. The chill brings out the flavors of the other ingredients also. They are pretty easy to make.

Keebler club crackers (I think I used one sleeve and had leftovers-don't quote me)
1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Place one layer of club crackers on the bottom of a greased 9"X13" pan. In a large saucepan over low heat, combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, sugar, milk and margarine. Let boil for 5 minutes (I boiled for 6 minutes). Pour mixture over crackers in pan. Cover with another layer of Club crackers. Melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler, stirring often until smooth. Pour melted chocolate mixture over top layer of Club crackers and smooth with a spoon. Chill and cut into bars. Keep leftover bars covered in refrigerator.
