  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
  2. Place the crushed crackers in a bowl, pour the melted butter over them, and stir gently to coat the cracker pieces with butter. Spread the crackers out on the foil-lined baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes, until the crackers have started to brown.
  3. Remove the sheet from the oven, and sprinkle the chocolate chips in an even layer over the hot crackers. Let the chips melt for about 1 minute, then spread the chocolate evenly over the crackers with a spatula. Sprinkle the walnuts on top.
  4. Let the candy cool and harden for about 30 minutes, until the chocolate is set. Break the candy into pieces to serve.

Love this recipe except I don't break the crackers. I place the crackers side to side in the pan and pour the butter over them. Sometimes I use nuts, sometimes I don't.

My husband loves this stuff. You have to let it sit until it hardens. In my case, I made it before bed and let it sit out all night. It's an easy, different treat. Took it to a harvest party and while it was not gone at the end, it was quickly gone when I brought the rest home. It's surprisingly good, even though it doesn't look as exciting as other fall treats :)

i think a crucial ingredient is missing? like sugar! it states at the beginning - old-fashioned candy. doesn't candy = some sort of sugar involved? this is not "hard" by any means. at least at this point. and it's been well over 30 minutes. if i pour milk over this - it easily becomes cereal.
