Nikki's Chocolate Crackers

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

Saltine crackers
2 sticks butter (no substitute)
1 cup light brown sugar
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Line an 11x15-inch cookie sheet with aluminum foil. If there is not an edge around your cookie sheet fold the aluminum foil up to make a ridge around it. Spray nonstick cooking spray on the aluminum foil. Completely cover the aluminum foil with one layer of saltine crakers. Melt together the butter and brown sugar. Boil two and a half to three minutes until thick. Spread over crackers. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately five to five and a half minutes. Watch closely. It will burn easily. Remove from oven and cover with the chocolate chips. Then spread the chocolate around with a small spatula. Place entire pan in freezer. When frozen, peel off foil and break into pieces like peanut brittle.
