German Christmas Baking: skor bars

These Skor Bar cookies are so delicious, you'll want to make them often. German? Nope! Delicious? Yes! Quick? Yes! That's why they find their way into my list of Easy Kids Christmas Cookies Recipes. My Skorschnitten are fun to make together with your little ones. While you are boiling the butter and sugar, the kids can arrange the crackers in the pan and help later with adding the chocolate chips and nuts.

Hallo Summer Collection at Just like Oma's Store

If these cookies are part of your Christmas baking, they make a great addition to Lebkuchen, Pecan Bars that use a quick graham cookie base, and Almond Bars. All these are quick recipes and great tasting. These are cookies I save just for this special time of the year. 

Have Oma by your side ... helping you

Left over soda crackers? Make this ...

Using soda crackers as a base makes for easy and quick preparation. Have leftover soda crackers when you're finished with this recipe? Make a quick and easy flaky pastry dessert called Pineapple Pudding Dessert.

Do you have kids helping? Caution ...

Even though this recipe is quick and easy, it's not one for the kids to make unattended. Boiling the butter and brown sugar can be dangerous and should be done by an adult.

Why Skor?

Using semi-sweet chocolate chips and topping them with almonds makes these Skor cookies seem like traditional German baking. Why Skor? Well, Skor is a chocolate bar made by Hershey's (similar to the Daim bar that's sold in Germany). It has a thin layer of butter toffee that's covered in milk chocolate.

In the recipe below, the butter and brown sugar give the toffee layer that's held in place with the crackers. The chocolate chips give the chocolate layer. The nuts on top are just that special "extra".

Oma's Skor Bar Cookies ❤️


  • unsalted soda crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 cups chocolate chips, semi-sweet or dark
  • nuts, if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line cookie sheet with foil.
  • Cover cookie sheet with one layer of soda crackers
  • In saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar, stirring constantly until it boils. Boil for 1 minute, continuing to stir.
  • Pour mixture over crackers and spread.
  • Bake 5 minutes, until sugar mixture is bubbling.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over surface. Wait several minutes, until softened and smooth evenly. If needed, return cookie sheet to oven for a few minutes to help chocolate soften.
  • Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
  • Cool completely. Either break or cut into pieces.

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
