Easiest Bar Ever

Coming up with a name for this bar was so easy. Why? Because they truly are the easiest things on the planet to make. 
Not even lying.
3 ingredients (plus your favorite frosting), no measuring. What whaaaat!
"But what do they taste like?", you ask skeptically. 
They taste like heaven. Sweet sweet heaven in a square. You should probably be making these right now.

Easiest Bar Ever

1 box Ritz crackers
1 bag Chipits Skor bits
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray, line with parchment paper, and then lightly spray again. Set aside.
Crush the Ritz crackers using a rolling pin until it is mostly small crumbs. A few bigger bits are okay but you want the crackers well crushed. 
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the crushed Ritz, the Skor bits, and the sweetened condensed milk.

When well  mixed, press into prepared pan. 

Bake at 350 until edges are golden brown and top appears dry, about 15 - 20 minutes. 

Let cool completely before frosting with your favorite frosting. I used a browned butter, cream cheese icing - recipe below.

Browned Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

1/3 cup browned butter, room temp
1 (8 oz) brick cream cheese, room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat all ingredients together until smooth. 
Spread on cooled bars. (If frosting seems too thin simply refrigerate for a while to thicken up. 

Cut and serve.

These freeze very well also. When they come out of the oven they are a little crunchy but as they sit they soften and become these magically delicious squares. 
You can use canned frosting if you don't want to make your own but I find the browned butter cream cheese frosting really goes well with the flavors of the bar and it is super simple to whip up.
