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!


1 pkg
saltine crackers (about 40 crackers) break last row to fit
1 c
unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1 c
packed dark brown sugar
2 c
milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark if you prefer)
chopped pecans (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat 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.
In 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.
Bake 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.
