    I made these and liked the ease of these cookies, but it was like eating pure sugar. I change the butter amount to 1/2 cup and sugar to 1/2 cup light brown sugar. Much better just spread sugar mixture with a frosting spreader followed the recipe and when chocolate was melted added chopped peanuts over top very good. After my changes i give this recipe 5 stars

    We decided to make these in our FACS class. At first, all of us thought this recipe sounded really nasty. Who would put chocolate on saltine crackers? But, we decided to try them anyway, just to see how they'd turn out. They turned out to be SO good. Our whole school loved them. The principal said they tasted like Heath candybar. The chocolate gives it the flavor of a candybar and the crackers just give it a little crunch. These were delish.
