Salty Caramel Crunch Bars

from Stephanie Hollowell via Judy Lepthien

Ingredients:
90 club crackers, such as Keebler brand
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups graham-cracker crumbs
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
½ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butterscotch baking chips
1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella (sm jar)
Directions:
Line a 9×13 pan with 1 layer crackers, cutting if needed to fit. In a
large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the graham
cracker crumbs, both sugars, milk and vanilla. Bring to a boil. Boil
for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and spread
half of the cooked mixture over the prepared crackers. Place
another layer of crackers on top. Spread the remainder of the cooked
mixture over the crackers. Place a last layer of crackers on top. In a
small microwave safe bowl, carefully melt the butterscotch chips,
using short bursts of power, stirring in between. Stir in the chocolate
hazelnut spread until smooth, heating slightly if needed to make
mixture spreadable. Evenly spread the chocolate mixture on top of
last layer of crackers and refrigerate for about an hour to set. Cut into
bars.
Makes approximately 54 bars.
