Easy and Yummy...though a bit odd sounding when you read the recipe. I haven't made it in years, so the times are estimated. But I remember it being pretty quick to make besides the chilling. Chilling time is included in prep time.

  1. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then line with crackers.
  2. Preheat oven to 350* F.
  3. In a sauce pan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat until it reaches hard ball texture - 250*F on a candy thermomator OR if you don't have one when a small amount is dripped into chilled water a ball is formed that is rigid but still pliable.

  5. Take out and sprinkle chocolate chips over crackers and candy then return to oven until the chocolate chips melt a little (2 - 5 min).
  6. Remove from oven again and spread chocolate evenly around, sprinkle with walnuts if you wish.
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 1/2 to 2 hours then peel off foil and break or cut into pieces.

This is actually amazing! DH wouldn't eat it when he saw that it had a cracker on the bottom. Too bad as that leaves more for me. :) Jodi, this is absolutely yummy! Was worried about using salted butter, but it was not a problem. Used only one stick with the brown sugar and it worked just fine on one sleeve (1/4 pound or 115 g) of saltines. Topped it with 60% Ghiardelli's chips. Thank you for posting this keeper that only took about twenty minutes to make (without chilling time. After all, who could wait?)
