  • 30 saltine crackers
  • 8 Tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • sprinkles if desired


  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place saltines in 5 rows of 6 so the edges are touching.
  2. In a small pan over medium heat, combine butter and sugar, stirring until the butter is melted.
  3. Let it bubble lightly while stirring for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Pour over saltine crackers and use a pastry brush to make sure all crackers are covered.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top.
  7. Return to the oven for 1 minute.
  8. Spread melty chocolate chips all over the top to make a layer of chocolate.
  9. Top with chopped nuts and sprinkles.
  10. Let cool completely until the chocolate hardens (I put mine in the fridge for an hour), then break into pieces and serve.
  11. Store in the fridge.
