Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Line 1 large or 2 small jelly-roll pans with aluminum foil, spray with nonstick spray and arrange the saltines salt-side down in a single layer. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and boil until it turns a caramel color, a few minutes. Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.

Put the jelly-roll pan into the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly, watching carefully. Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.

Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

They are super easy to make. I think they taste a little bit like the chocolate bar Twix or Skor. Just be sure you stay at the over while the caramel is melting, it can burn real quick. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great recipe, absoultey love it. Perfect for the holidays and parties :). I like to sprinkle different things on top, like chopped pecans or sprinkles to make them festive for the holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe; I've made it several times. I put mine in the refrigerator rather than the freezer to cool off. Realize that the pan is still oven hot when it goes in, and it lowers the temp inside the freezer too much. I clear a shelf in the refrigerator, put down potholders and place the hot pan on top. I leave it in for an hour, and it comes out perfectly and ready to be broken up into pieces. :) It's amazingly delicious. It tastes a lot like a Heath bar. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making these for yrs & love them. I do use lass butter/sugar & choc. chips. As long as you use equal parts butter to brown sugar. I have used 1/2 cup butter/sugar, but that is a little more difficult to cover the saltines. Last time I made them I used 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons, I then sprinkle just enough choc, chips. They are more crunchy this & slightly less caloric. item not reviewed by moderator and published
