Tasty Tuesday - Skor Bark

Over the last few years I have heard a lot about this delicious treat, but never paid much attention to it. When I read the ingredient list I didn't see how it could be good.


This year, I was involved in a baking exchange and it was one of the recipes that was included for me. I took a bite, and then couldn't stop eating it. I finished the ones that were given to me, and went out and bought the ingredients to make it myself. (It's kinda gross to think about how much I actually ate, all by myself....) I have taken to calling it SKRACK (skor crack)...

I had originally made it for our Christmas party, however - it didn't last until then and I had to REMAKE it. Then, our party ended up cancelled and I was left with all the bark to myself AGAIN.....


It is so easy to make and eat, that I thought I would share the recipe with all of you.

Ingredients:

  • Salted Soda Crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
  • Skor bits to sprinkle on top


Directions:

  • Line a baking sheet with tinfoil or parchment paper
  • Arrange crackers evenly over pan (touching, but not overlapping)
  • Melt butter over medium heat and stir in brown sugar until melted, bring to a boil (stirring constantly to ensure it doesn't stick to pan) and continue boiling for 2 minutes
  • Pour mixture over crackers (crackers may not stay even now)
  • Bake in oven for 5 minutes (350 degrees)
  • Remove, sprinkle with chocolate chips and place back in oven for 2-3 minutes until the chips have started to soften.  Use a spatula to spread the melted chips over the base, sprinkle skor bits over top
  • Place in refrigerator (I used the garage in December) until hardened
  • Use a sharp knife to break into pieces
  • ENJOY

  2. I love bark but have never tried it with Skor bits. Problem with this stuff, is one piece is never enough.

  3. When I read that it had soda crackers I didn't think much of trying the recipe. But for some reason I went ahead with it and my son and I polished off the batch in a couple of days. It's such a good treat!

    1. Tove, I bake it at 350 degree's - you can also top it with candy pieces or sprinkles, or leave it plain!
