Oh I forgot to post these little gems for Christmas!! If you like the taste of the sweet salty sensation, then make these for the experience of a party on your tongue!! Heavens they are wonderfully delicious!! Put them in a little beautiful tin, and they look and taste like gourmet delicacies!
40 or so Saltine Crackers
1 cup butter (do not substitute)
1 cup brown sugar
1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Approx. 1/4 cup shelled walnuts or pecans, chopped ultra fine
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Line a jellyroll pan (aluminum pan with shallow sides) with aluminum foil.
Arrange saltine crackers on foil. Make sure crackers are flat, and pan is full.
Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan and boil for 3 minutes. Pour over crackers, spread with spoon to coat evenly.
Bake at 325 degrees F. for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven, pour chocolate chips over and let stand 5 minutes to melt.
Spread around with a knife or spoon, then cover with bits of chopped nuts or some kind of brickle if you so desire.
Place in refrigerator or freezer until hard. Break into bite-size or cracker-size pieces.
You may also substitute white chocolate pieces or whatever you like instead of the semi-sweet chocolate. This makes a delectable gift or treat for any age! We made several batches of this over the holidays and it is absolutely delicious.
