Cracker Candy

Top Review by Mark and Stacy

I was going to rate this 4 stars. It's different and easy and cheap, but it wasn't my favorite thing. But then I kept sneaking back to the fridge to get another piece, and I decided that was a sign! I cut the recipe down, and that's how I will do it every time I make it for just us, because otherwise I'll eat even more! I used 24 crackers, since that's what my small cookie sheet held. I used 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/2 cup plus 1/8 of a cup of light brown sugar, and 1 and 1/4 cups of chocolate chips. I know I will make this soon and will include it on my holiday cookie platter. EDIT** I tried this a 2nd time using margerine, and it was very sticky. I wouldn't serve it to anyone because I was afraid the would lose their teeth. Then I did it a 3rd time, using real butter again. It wasn't sticky at all. Just nice and crunchy. So if you only have margerine, skip this recipe until you have butter on hand!

  4. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  5. Cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Pour the mixture over the crackers.
  7. Bake 5 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the baked crackers.
  9. Let stand 5 minutes then spread the melted chocolate over the top.
  10. Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
  11. Chill in the refrigerator until set.
  12. Invert onto a flat surface; remove the foil and break into pieces.
  13. Store, covered in an airtight container in refrigerator.
  14. Note: You can skip the chocolate chips- it's still delicious.
