Grandma's Recipes One By One!

3 Layer Bars

on November 4, 2013

We’re starting to think about the holidays with today’s recipe.

I could see these treats used as a holiday hostess gift or a holiday gift for someone with a sweet tooth.

This recipe is really good.

It’s easy, it’s tasty and it’s pretty.

3 Layer Bars aren’t really bars. To me they seem much more like a candy.

3 Layer Bars 2

This recipe comes from Grandma’s niece and since the card was still in the box, we know it’s a good one.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

3 Layer Bars

Mix together in medium saucepan:

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup crushed graham crackers

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

Bring to a boil – boil no more than 5 minutes.

Grease 9″ x 13″ cake pan.

Line pan with saltine crackers (about 1 sleeve total).

Pour the cooked mixture over top.

Then add another layer of saltines.

Melt together:

2/3 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Put frosting on top of crackers.


The saltines fit pretty well.


Butterscotch chips don’t seem to melt as well as chocolate chips so just keep stirring.


They cut easily and I would cut them small.


They really are more like a candy.

Caramel-y, chocolate-y, crispy, gooey.

Friends and family would LOVE to get these for a gift at holiday time or anytime!
