Ingredients

36 to 45 saltine cracker squares

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup sugar

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped peanuts

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 5

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

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

- 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.
