Been making this recipe for awhile. When I first saw it I started not to make it because of the saltines. I thought it didn't sound very good. I am so glad I tried it. It is now my families favorite candy!
saltine crackers (about 40 crackers) break last row to fit
unsalted butter (2 sticks)
packed dark brown sugar
milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark if you prefer)
chopped pecans (optional)
1Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan with foil. Place saltine crackers salt side up and side-by-side in the pan as tightly as possible without overlapping. Use saltine pieces to fill any gaps at the end of the pan. Set aside.
2In a medium nonstick saucepan melt butter over medium heat stirring frequently with a spatula. Once butter has melted, add brown sugar stirring to combine. Cook on medium heat until mixture starts to boil.(when it starts boiling time about 3 minutes.) Remove from heat and pour over saltines using spatula to spread sauce.
3Bake crackers for 5 minutes or until butter mixture begins to bubble. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with chocolate allowing the heat to melt the chocolate about 2 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly with the spatula so all of the crackers are completely covered. Sprinkle with chopped pecans if desired. I usually put nuts on half. Refrigerate until chocolate sets and hardens. Break apart and serve.
