1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup butter (not margarine)
1/2 cup sugar
1 bag (12 ounce size) chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

Place the saltine crackers on the foil, single, not on top of each other.

In a saucepan, melt together the butter and sugar. Pour the butter/sugar mixture onto the crackers. Place in the oven for 5 minutes. It will be bubbly when it comes out. Turn oven off. Pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. Place in the oven for about 1 minute to get the chips soft.

Remove from oven and gently spread the chips, like icing. Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Break apart, like brittle. Store in an airtight container.

Variation -- use a mixture of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.

We call this crack candy. Super easy. If I'm making this for other purposes than just snacking (ie having guests who might eat it) I melt some white chocolate and do a zig zag drizzle over the crackers. Makes it prettier.

Used for our church's Valentine Banquet this weekend. Rave reviews! Many requests for the recipe. I've seen similar recipes with more or less butter or sugar and some use brown sugar. This was the simplest. You can use your imagination to top it with nuts, white choc. chips etc. but it is great as is.

Very easy to prepare and surprisingly delicious! I didn't have saltines on hand and used multi-grain club crackers...turned out just fine. Could get by with less chocolate chips if desired; they made quite a thick layer (which of course is delicious).

Quick and easy to make. Can taste the browned butter with the great chocolate. Not too sweet with the interesting crunch of the saltine. Would never know it's a cracker, just has a crunch yet creamy chocolate and gooey butter. Love um!
