My mother had her first bite of these two years ago at a neighborhood cookie exchange. She loved them and particularly enjoyed the fact that these could be made with matzoh crackers as well as saltines. Remember, she grew up in the Catskills sometimes called the Borscht Belt and has friends that could appreciate this recipe. Don't wait for the Holidays or a cookie exchange- this recipe is good and easy for any occasion.
4 ounces saltine crackers 1 cup butter 1 cup dark brown sugar 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 3/4 cup chopped pecans
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in a single layer, (I covered cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then sprayed with cooking spray.) 3. In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil for three minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely. 4. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for five minutes. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces. (Cool in fridge.)
