Easy Saltine Cracker Candy
This is a quick and easy chocolate "toffee" candy made with saltine crackers and sprinkled with nuts
4 ounces saltine crackers
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2-2 cups (9-12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut halves, optional
1. Liberally grease a 10 x 15-inch jelly roll pan. Lay saltine crackers in pan in a single layer. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over saltines.
3. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until toffee is bubbly.
4. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Allow to set for 5 minutes or until the chocolate chips are melted, then spread across the crackers with a knife. Sprinkle peanuts on top if using.* Allow candy to cool, and then chill before breaking into pieces.
*Optional: For easier breaking, at this point you can score the candy with a knife at the cracker "seams". After candy is chilled, it will break more uniformly.

This is a delicious, super-easy candy! It tastes like a candy bar (very sweet!) and is amazingly good, especially considering how simple it is to make! I think it's extra good with the peanuts added.
This is a really handy dessert and can be made in a jiffy. I also usually have all the ingredients already on hand, which is a real plus! My rating: 10/10
