    Jodi Consoli's Note:

    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.

      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?)
