Servings: variesPrep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with aluminum foil. (Use heavy-duty foil to make it easier to remove the candy, or I would also suggest you spray the foil lightly with oil.) Spread crackers evenly on the bottom of the pan. (Any kind of standard crackers will do.) Heat butter and brown sugar in a pot. Bring to a boil for three minutes. Spread butter and brown sugar mixture over the candy. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired. I like to pound nuts inside a plastic bag with a hammer. Kids like this, too. Makes really finely chopped nuts and it’s fun. Bake at 350-degrees for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven. Sprinkle 12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate morsels on top. Put pan back in still-warm oven (turned off) for about 15 minutes to let chocolate melt. Remove pan and spread melted chocolate. Chill until firm. Turn contents of pan onto a covered surface and peel off foil. Break candy into pieces.
