Treat not Trick - Homemade Twix Bars

It's nearly Halloween, and the store aisles have been filled with tempting bags of candy, practically since the 4th of July. Since we rarely have trick or treaters visit, I can't justify buying those sweet treats. But I guess I can justify making a facsimile thereof. So I did.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 cup crushed graham crackers
1 1/4 packets club crackers
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Line a greased 9- by 13-inch pan with a layer of club crackers, fit tightly together.
Simmer brown sugar, white sugar, butter and milk for 5 minutes. Add graham crumbs and spread immediately over crackers. Quickly add another layer of crackers.
Melt the remaining ingredients over low heat and spread over the top layer of crackers. Cool and cut into squares.
Note: The crackers didn't fit exactly into the pan. I just did the best I could. We aren't running a factory around here, so I guess every piece didn't need to look uniform!
I stored them in the refrigerator so the chocolate layer would stay firm, but it's not required.
