  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  2. Place the crackers on the foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer, so they overlap like shingles. Melt the butter with brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the crackers.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; remove from oven, and sprinkle crackers with chocolate chips.
  4. Let stand about 2 minutes, until the chips are melted, and spread them over the crackers with a spreader or kitchen knife. Sprinkle with nuts, if desired. Allow to cool completely, about 1 hour; break into chunks, and store in airtight sealed container.

I received this same recipe from a friend last year, only we used soda crackers and it was delicious. Everyone loved it.

So easy to make! Especially good with graham crackers: you can line them up easier in the pan and don't have to overlap them.

I have also made this using saltines instead, and it's hard to keep these around. They are now one of my favorite treats. I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't think they're outstanding!!

I have made this brittle before using primium plus soda crackers, Loved it, the sweet and saltly flavs are a great mix. Ensure to cook long enough on the stove and not to long in the oven.

I just tried this and it is fantastic! However I have changed it up a bit and used saltines, milk chocolate chips and added sliced toasted almonds to the top. It is definitely something that keeps you coming back for more. CRACK is a good way of describing it, znd you will become addicted too!!
