Caramel Cracker Bars
Have you ever made cracker bars? Not to be confused with these. Two totally different treats. Cracker bars are layers of crispy crackers, chewy caramel, and topped with chocolate. Delish. Yeah, I know. Or as my daughter might text..ikr. I had no idea what that meant. ikr? If you’re sitting there as clueless as I was, ikr= I know, right. Now, say it with a 12yr old valley girl voice.
If you already knew what ikr meant, then you are way cooler than me. But, let’s not go there, cause then I may feel depressed and eat more cracker bars. Which would be NOT cool. Cause I have already eaten way more than necessary. I don’t even think it was necessary to eat the first half dozen to begin with!
Anyways, like I totally have to go workout now. Ya know? Yeah. Ikr, I despise it too.
