36 to 45 saltine cracker squares
1 cup sugar
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped peanuts


Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Lightly spray foil with no-stick cooking spray.

Place saltine crackers in single layer onto prepared pan. If necessary, break additional crackers in half to fill in any gaps.

Combine butter and sugar in 1-quart saucepan; cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking 1-2 minutes until mixture thickens slightly. Pour mixture over crackers; spread to coat all crackers.

Bake 5 minutes (mixture will look foamy). Remove from oven; sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over crackers. Continue baking 1-2 minutes or until chips are slightly melted.

Gently spread chocolate mixture over crackers; sprinkle peanuts evenly over top. Cool completely. Break or cut into pieces.

Recipe Tip

- Substitute brown sugar for sugar for a more toffee-like flavor.

- Substitute your favorite nut for chopped peanuts.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Just love this recipe. I have made it so many times and have had great comments from everyone who has tried it. I also told everyone where to find the recipe. Just made it again today for a graduation party this weekend. I have topped it with the crushed peppermint chips and/or candy for Christmas. And used the Andes candy bits for St. Patrick's Day. Try it - you'll just love it.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
