I am not a sweet eater so I have not made these easy bars but they look tempting. Imagine using Soda Crackers for the base! The recipe is from Kraft Foods.They say The best crunchy Brittle .you have ever eaten. No-one will guess the secret ingredient. Takes 10 minutes to make them Please read the two reviews before making the recipe. I suggest that you use "Release" foil or spray with Pam. I checked the ingredients and they are correct according to kraft. Perhaps they have a very thin layer on top.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 35 premium soda crackers, Salted tops (or you may want to use unsalted)
  • 12 cup butter

  4. Bring to a boil: boil 3 minutes without stirring.
  5. Spread over the crackers.
  6. Bake 7 minutes, remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with the chopped chocolate.
  7. Let stand 5 minutes.

A friend served these at coffee this morning. She said she used 2 sticks butter or margerine and 1 Cup Brown Sugar. Then sprinkled them with chocolate chips and pecans. I loved these darn things - had two - and they are so simple.

My family absolutely devoured these things!! As per the reviews I upped the b.sugar/butter to 3/4 C each. I used milk choc chips and pecan pieces-so it tasted like a heath or skor bar (YUM). I used foil on the pan which I sprayed with pam, and the bars didn't stick at all! All in all a very simple recipe easy to make with stuff I have in the pantry!I actually think these are yummy enough to give as gifts with my Christmas cookies- maybe throw some red and green sprinkles on. Ps soda crackers = saltines or equivalant, that was a little confusing to me.

I had the same experience as Anemone -- the butter mixture didn't cover all of the crackers. The crackers also stuck horribly to the foil, so next time I'd spray it with Pam. They were tasty though.
