    I live in Hamilton Ontario and have been making these squares for years. Every year I go on line to find out how long to bake them and found your site.
    Today I was putting them into my 7″x11″ pan wondering why they were so sticky. Turned around and there in the food processor was the balance of the crackers. A senior moment for sure.
    Next I am going to try them with ground Cheerios as my Daughter-in-law is gluten free and so are they. Should work.
    Then a batch of coconut macaroons and she will be all set.

      HAHAHA…I have those senior moments too Betty, glad I’m not alone! What a great idea to substitute Cheerios to make them gluten free…have you done that before? (PS You’re a great mother-in-law!!)

        No I haven’t done this before. Made her some shortbread with rice flour and cornstarch and it turned out not too badly. Bought the Cheerios later today so will make tomorrow. I figured everyone should be able to have a treat.

        With 2 grands that decided to become vegetarians I am trying lots of new things now in my late 70’s.

        Here I am again almost 2 years later and having lots of senior moments since my 80th birthday. I am making these squares for our Canadian Thanksgiving and found some animal crackers that are gluten free. They should work for my daughter in law.

        the bags of Skor look smaller so was looking for a weight.

        Betty, I don’t have a bag right now, but I “think” it’s 200g. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Do you chill them after for the icing on top to firm up a bit?

      Yes, I do Karen and I usually store them in the fridge too. I should add that to the recipe, thanks for the heads up!

    Hi,

    The Cheerios being so much lighter made it hard to judge amount needed. So like my Mom would have done just added until I thought enough.

    My tasters, with both types each picked the original saying the Cheerio one was softer.

    But it is now in the big winter fridge (garage) so we will see.

    Next will be macaroons but they are good for all as naturally gluten free.

      The “winter fridge” (love that…lol!) will definitely help them firm up and I bet they will taste great!

    Hi can you freeze the base mixture? If so do you just let them unthaw before icing? Thank you

      Tracy, I usually make them, frost and chill. Then cut into squares and freeze with parchment paper separating the layers in an airtight container.

    Hello I am going to try the Ritz Crackers bars and wondering how many crackers are in a 200 gram box? We buy the ritz Crackers in the larger box

      Oh gee, I’m not sure and I don’t have a box right now. Could you breakdown the number of grams in the larger box and do it that way? For example, if your box has 400grams just use half or if it has 600 grams use one third of the box?

    I was wondering if I could use skor bars (beat them with rolling pin) instead of toffee pieces. I cannot get them here. They have chocolate coating, will that matter? Thanks for your help.

      I think that would work…and you can never go wrong with a little added chocolate! Let me know how they turn out Sally.

    Here it is nearing the end of 2018 (oct.) and I’ve finally got my baking mood back. It was soooo hot this past summer, I just sat and waited for the Autumn to arrive. What a waste of time.

    I made pecan bars using the shortbread base and it flew out of the pan. Today I made a banana bread with toffey bits and that was a very nice surprise. Next I am going to try your recipe because when i get the sudden urge to bake something, pulling out 4 ingredients is right up my alley.
    I went to the Skor site and ended up on your blog, that was another nice surprise.
    I havent made this recipe yet so i cant rate it, however i read the reviews and it sure is a hit.

    Thanks

      Hi Penny, I agree…was far too hot this summer for much baking! Thanks for your lovely comments and I hope you enjoy these Skor Squares as much as we do! They’re actually so easy, we could make them in the summer heat… hahahahaha. Monica

    Mine seem really gooey and sticky does that mean I didn’t cook them long enough? Thanks!

    Are you sure I don’t need 2 of everything for a 9 x 13 pan.
    I am planning on making these for a baby shower for my daughter-in-law this weekend. Our first grandchild, I am so excited.

      Congratulations on your first grandchild, Wendy! The squares are fairly thin and I always make them in a 9×13 pan.
