Amazing how easy this is. I used unsalted crackers. Next time I will try finely grated nuts on top. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

The flavor of this buttercrunch reminded me of almond rocha (without the almond coating). Super easy recipe and addictingly yummy! Next time I'm going to sprinkle with finely chopped almonds. Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.

Thanks for the awesome recipe. There are a few here, but there are some little differences. Your directions were very clear and easy to follow. I used 40 saltine crackers and also added nuts on top of the melted chocolate. Thanks again!
