This is good!!! I tasted it at a party and was so surprised to learn that the base of the cookie was a saltine cracker. I haven't made this myself, but plan to do so in the near future. Just thought I would submit it because it is so different.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray your baking pan with cooking spray OR line with aluminum foil.
- Line cookie sheet with the crackers, breaking the end pieces to fit the pan.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the sugar; bring to a boil stirring constantly until the the sugar is melted and turns a light caramel color.
- Spread sugar mixture on crackers and place in oven for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven& sprinkle chocolate chips over all.
- Spread with a knife when chips melt enough to do so.
- Sprinkle with crushed walnuts.
I once had a recipe similar to this and I had misplaced it. I am so glad to have it again! I used slivered almonds instead of the walnuts. I had made these for a bridal shower and in keeping with the Bride's colors, I also added crushed red smarties along with the almonds. (I think that adding multi-colored crushed smarties on top would make a pretty snack as well.)
I am so glad that I can update my review. The first time I made these cookies, I just threw the margarine and sugar in a pot on the stove to heat. Unfortunately the sugar turned into a mass on the bottom and the margarine melted on the top. Well I made it again this weekend as an extra dessert. We were getting together with friends who have 7 children so I wanted an extra easy dessert on hand. This time I melted the margarine and then slowly added the sugar. It came out much better. Really easy after that and my kids liked sprinkiling on the chips. I used chocolate and vanilla chips and it looked very pretty and they gobbled them up too.
This recipe desearves a better title! It is absolutely delicious. The only things I changed were the nuts and the chips. I had Butterscotch chips on hand and pecans. (cut is as soon as you can and get it out of the pan before it hardens). This candy is even better than a "Heath Bar"! and sooo simple to make! Thanks.
