Awesome! This is the best recipe I've found for this DELICIOUS candy! This is always the first dessert to disappear at a potluck - everyone who tries it loves it!

Delish! I had two open sleeves of almost stale saltines, and didn't know what else to do with them. The age of the cracker wasn't obvious in this. I skipped the foil, just sprayed my cookie sheet directly, didn't have any sticking (or clean-up) issues. I never did get these refrigerated, they set up just fine at room temp., and then we ate them all. The combination of flavors is good, the saltines save the candy from being overly sweet. I'll be making these again, perhaps with fresh saltines! Thanks, MissTinkJordan.
