  • Cooking spray
  • 35 to 40 saltine crackers

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.

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. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.

Transfer the pan to the refrigerator until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
