These delicious cracker candies are easy to make, and you will enjoy baking them with your kids at home. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can also use milk chocolate if you want. You can also use any nuts available in your pantry, like almonds and cashews. Serve them in a deep bowl or rectangular plate.
1 tube of saltines (about 40 pieces)
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup toasted chopped pecans
How to Make Cracker Candy
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the cookie sheet with foil and apply some baking spray. Arrange the crackers in the pan; break them to fit the ends if needed.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add brown sugar and increase the heat to medium while continuously stirring. When it starts to boil, use a timer and let it boil for exactly three minutes.
Pour the mixture over the crackers, and using a spatula or brush, spread it evenly—Bake for 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and spread the chocolate chips on top of the crackers. Cover with another sheet pan or foil and let the chocolate melt for 3 minutes. Once melted, spread it evenly.
Add the toasted chopped pecans and press them gently on the crackers. Refrigerate until the chocolate sets.
