How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Line jelly roll pan (aka cookie sheet) wih foil, overlapping the sides.
  • Line pan with soda crackers (saltines)in a single layer, to cover pan.
  • Stir and boil together sugar and butter in a small saucepan
  • for 3 minutes.
  • Pour sugar/butter mixture over crackers and spread evenly.
  • Bake for approximately 8 will be golden and bubbly but not brown.
  • As soon as it is out of the oven, sprinkle approximately 12 ounces
  • of chocolate chips on top of the crackers.
  • Put pan back in oven for about 1 minute to help chocolate melt.
  • Remove and spread chocolate with a knife.
  • Sprinkle 1 ½ cup chopped nuts on top of chocolate, covering all.
  • Press slightly so nuts adhere to chocolate.
  • Put pan in freezer and cool for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Peel back foil gently from cookies and break cookies
  • into pieces. Keeps best in a covered container in the refrigerator.
  • (I use pecans....I roast them in the oven for about 5 minutes for optimal flavor, then finely chop them.)
  • These are really good and unusual....easy, too! I wouldn’t use margarine unless I had no choice.
  • Number of servings really vary.

    I had difficulty submitting this recipe but discovered, finally, that I had to put a number in the servings box; couldn't leave blank or put in a word.
