    mamacancook's Note:

    This is a somewhat different variation than the traditional "Bark"--more of a cracker type candy-I make several variations. Great to make for Christmas parties, bake sales, etc.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Line a cookie sheet (the kind with sides) with parchment paper or foil.
    3. 3
      Cover the lined cookie sheet with saltines--do not overlap.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil the 2 sticks of butter or margarine (I've used "better" margarine and it works just as well) to a boil.
    5. 5
      Add the brown sugar-stir quickly and cook for few minutes-continuing to stir until sugar is melted.
    6. 6
      Pour the melted butter/brown sugar combo over the crackers. (Be careful as mixture can REALLY burn you if you're not careful).
    7. 7
      Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove pan and place on cooling rack.
    9. 9
      While pan is still hot-cover with chocolate chips (OKAY, HONESTY CHECK--I don't measure--I grab the bag and dump bout 3/4 of the bag over the hot crackers).
    10. 10
      Allow the chips to melt and spread with a spatula.
    11. 11
      If adding chopped nuts or sprinkles, add now.
    12. 12
      Allow to cool-break apart and enjoy.
    13. 13
    14. 14
      I also drizzle white chocolate after the semi-sweet has firmed up OR I've used white chocolate to cover the crackers and sprinkles for the holidays--you could drizzle with regular chocolate or try peanut butter chips and then drizzle with chocolate, even butterscotch chips--there's numerous ways to vary this recipe.

      This is a GOOD one! Although I've seen others with half the butter, and are just as tasty... with half the butter. So... I'll certainly try it before I judge! =)
