Skor Squares - only 4 ingredients! | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Follow Taste and Tell

Having 3 kids 4 and under keeps life exciting. I love them all dearly, I really do, but sometimes it can be a challenge. The two older kids have decided that they constantly want to compete for attention. If Easton falls down and starts crying, Abbi will follow behind him and purposely fall down and start crying. So instead of one crying child, I always have 2. (Luckily Camden is an angel baby and just sits by and watches all of the drama go down!)

The other day, I went to make dinner. And of course, once I’m knee deep in chicken, that’s when it all breaks loose. The dog starts crying to go outside. Abbi is yelling for something from one side of the house, and Easton is crying because he wants his drink filled up. It’s nights like those that I wonder how I even get dinner on the table.

So when it comes to dessert, I’ve been going as simple as possible. And these bars here – only 4 ingredients. Talk about simple!

I actually ran across these while surfing on Pinterest one day. I saw a version of these, and clicked on it, only to find that it dead ended. I really don’t like it when that happens! (Please, please, please – don’t let this happen on Pinterest. Make sure you are pinning correctly!!) I did some searching, and found similar recipes several places online, but they were all very vague.

One box of Ritz crackers. What is that supposed to mean? I don’t know about your grocery store, but there is more than one size of box of Ritz crackers at my grocery store.

Some recipes said to cook them for half an hour. Some for no more than 8 minutes. And some didn’t bake them at all. They were really turning into a mystery!

I really wanted to try these, and I know you all aren’t digging the vague ingredients either, so I decided to try these out – with actual measurements.

Lucky for me (and for you!), they were really pretty easy, and turned out fabulous the first time I tried them. My husband couldn’t get enough of them, claiming that they are his favorite thing that I’ve made in awhile. And they only take 4 ingredients. I can totally do these while all is going crazy around me!!

Skor Squares
Prep time
Cook time
A super easy bar dessert for lovers of salty and sweet.
Serves: 16 bars
  • 1 (11.3 oz) box Ritz crackers
  • 1 (8 oz) bag toffee bits
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray an 8x8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place all of the Ritz crackers in a food processor and process until they are fine crumbs. Pour them into a bowl.
  3. To the bowl of crackers, add 1 cup of the toffee bits and the can of sweetened condensed milk. Stir until combined. Press into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  4. Immediately pour the chocolate chips evenly over the top of the bars. Allow them to sit for a few minutes to melt, then spread evenly over the top. (If they aren't melting, stick the pan back into the oven for a minute or two.) Sprinkle on the remaining toffee bits. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

  1. I love this post! Just on Sunday I made some bars that are simple and use a can of sweet cond milk. I love yours and that they’re no bake. Over the summer I made a pink lemonade bar that used a Ritz cracker base and crumble topping and the filling was pink lemonade, cool whip and sweet cond milk (I better look up my own recipe) but love the salty/sweet Ritz combo. Thanks for the linky love, too!

  2. Oh my, I love the look of these bars! I seem to always have toffee bits on hand (I think I have a problem), so I’d love to try these!
    And I hear ya – it really bothers me when I see a food item pinned on pinterest that isn’t linked to an actual recipe!

  3. Thank you for putting actual measurements! I hate it when I see “1 bag of chocolate chips” or “1 can of evaporated milk” etc. Because you know, not everybody on the internet is in the US. 😉 Anyway, these bars look great and I love how simple they are! And hopefully things will calm down with the kids soon. At least I hope they will. 🙂

    Ugh, I hate when I see a recipe I really want to try on Pinterest and it’s a dead end. Glad you solved the mystery on this one because they look amazing!! Oh, and I have no idea how you keep up with the blog and 3 small kids – I struggle with just the first one 🙂

  5. carrian says:

    oh my goodness! I don’t know how you get dinner on the table either! You’re such a good mom though, you probably distracted both kids and then prepared an amazing meal

  6. I give you so much credit! It always seems kids decide to start acting up right in the middle of making dinner. Seems to happen to me all the time too. These squares look delicious! I love that they only require 4 ingredients!

  7. These are so much fun!! Love this idea!

  8. Maria says:

    What a fun bar treat!

  9. Love the use of buttery and salty crackers and sweetened condensed milk (which I could drink straight from the can). These look De-Lish!

  10. Karly says:

    I’ve seen these around and have been dying to make them! They look so good!

  11. Is this real life? These look INCREDIBLE. And so simple too! I’m in love.

  12. Girl you have gone and done it now.

  13. Emily says:

    Pinned these in record time. Can’t wait to try them! Thank you for figuring out the recipe!

  14. Annalise says:

    I don’t know how you ever get dinner on the table with 3 kids. I’m having a hard enough time with one!! These bars look magical. Love that they’re so easy, and I bet they are like crack. I’d probably eat the whole pan!

  15. I love everything about these bars! Easy, few ingredients and quick – fantastic!

  16. For real! Why does that happen once you’re wrist deep in chicken goop? I swear they do it on purpose.

  17. What a great idea for a quick and easy dessert!

  18. Smileygem says:

    These sound great – what are toffee bits thought? I think I will have to substitute them for something – are they soft fudge or chewey toffee?

  19. These bars look fab, I love toffee and chocolate!

  20. Joanne says:

    I don’t know how you even have TIME to make dessert..but can I definitely see why simple would be better! These bars look awesome!

  21. There is NO way I’m not trying this. Immediately, actually.

  22. teresa says:

    girl, i don’t know how you do it, you’re wonder woman! and to always have such great recipes too!

    i love these! they look delicious and the fact that they only require four ingredients is even better!

  23. Bree says:

    I can completely relate to crazy dinner times and I have one less kid ;)! These bars look great!

  24. kristy says:

    I think you are amazing Deborah. My kiddos are four years apart and I can barely keep up with cooking enough to post once a week, let alone as often as you do. You are a super woman and with recipes like this, my kids will think I am too. 😉

  25. Oh my, Skor bars are my absolute favorites! These are awesome!!!

  26. My life has been crazy busy as of late so I have been on the hunt for easier, simpler recipes but that don’t skimp on flavor. These bars are perfect!

  27. Angie says:

    Love these, look so good!

  28. i love when easy recipes turn out fantastically! these look soo good!

  29. Chels R. says:

    This looks so yummy and I love how easy it looks. And don’t even get me started on the pinterest stuff. I’m sure I have a few pins that lead to dead ends, but the ones that make me really mad, are the links that just take you to a weird cooking site with the picture of the recipe with no link to where the recipe came from.

  30. grace says:

    can you believe some people actually eat ritz crackers as crackers? silliness. 🙂

  31. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Oh my goodess, I wouldn’t have imagined this to be so simple! It looks delicious 🙂

  32. I am all for super simple and easy desserts! Toffee is one of my favorites too, so this is perfect!

  33. Kathey says:

    I love this recipe so much! I know what you mean by having your hand full with 3 children. I have 2 autistic grandbabies & they are a handful sometimes, but the one thing that seems to calm them down is cooking, baking, or shopping for the ingredients used to make fantastic goodies. We’ve been trying to figure out many different recipes for this yummy edible & you have come up with the winning combination. Thank you for all of the other recipes on your blog, because now when ever my grandbabies come to Mama’s for the weekend there is always something we haven’t tried yet, but will before the weekend is out. Please keep doing what you do, so that I look like a rock star to my beautiful grandbabies.

  34. Pat Eavenson says:

    I am making these for my grandchildren who I babysit 2 days a week (they are a 4 year old and 2 1/2 year old twins)…..they love treats….and to you and my daughter you are super stars….

  35. Mary says:

    Thank you for taking the time too figure this out! Some said bake, some not too, found one recipe that had condensed milk, oh what to do! But you figured it out for all of us!, one lady frosted hers with Cream Cheese Icing too.

  36. Amy says:

    I just made these, but I like a thinner crust, so I put it in a 13 x 9 pan and doubled the chocolate chips. It is delicious! I couldn’t even wait for them to cool completely. Thanks for the recipe!

  37. Mary says:

    Wonderful bars!!

  38. LL says:

    Do these need to be refrigerated as I would like to make a batch and send to my Mom in Tulsa… THX!

  39. Kristl Story says:

    Thanks so much for putting an end to my search! I also found this recipe on Pinterest and was disappointed to discover no directions. My internet search yielded lots of dead ends until I found you! P.S. – The search was worth it, these are so quick, easy & yummy!

  40. brenda says:

    The are so very easy to make and really, really good. I doubled the recipe and put in
    a 9 x 13 pan. Everyone asked for the recipe. Thank you so much!
