  1. Place the water, sugar, and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until the sugar and butter dissolve, about 10 minutes. Pour into a mixing bowl and cool to room temperature.
  2. Stir the crushed animal crackers into the sugar mixture until evenly moistened; spread half the mixture into an 8x8-inch baking dish. Stir the cocoa powder into the remaining animal cracker mixture until smooth; spread into the baking dish over the lighter-colored layer. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the bajadera.
  3. Refrigerate overnight; cut into 16 pieces to serve.

I had nothing to compare this to but it sounded like something fun to try. I should have known better, looking over the list of ingredients, but it was like gnawing on hard sugar. Fixed per di...

I had animal crackers that needed to be used. I heard ZERO complaints for all that tried - just the sound of MMMMMM - YUMMY!
