Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Lightly spray foil with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place saltine crackers in single layer onto prepared pan. If necessary, break additional crackers in half to fill in any gaps.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Gently spread chocolate mixture over crackers; sprinkle peanuts evenly over top. Cool completely. Break or cut into pieces.

Recipe Tips

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

- Substitute your favorite nut for chopped peanuts.

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.
