Mystery Bars

Mystery Bars

I have made a lot of bar cookies in my life, but these Mystery Bars are definitely the best. Don’t be surprised if someone asks you for the recipe!


40-50 saltine crackers
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the saltine crackers in a row on the baking sheet, without any gaps.

Combine the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Stirring constantly, boil for 3 minutes.

Spread the mixture over the crackers to cover completely. Bake until the caramel is bubbling, about 3 minutes.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and quickly sprinkle with the chocolate chips, let them melt a bit and spread evenly around. Sprinkle nuts over the top.

Allow them to cool in the refrigerator for a few minutes before breaking apart into pieces.

Makes about 2 dozen pieces

Add or substitute peanut butter chips.
