EXCELLENT!! I have made this recipe 3 times already since Thanksgiving. I found that if I break the crackers apart once the chocolate has set, but is not TOTALLY hard, they break into nice cracker squares. Also, my family does not eat nuts, so I substituted 1/2-3/4 cup Toffee Bits (found by the chocolate chip packages) on top of the chocolate layer. The bars turned out wonderfully tasty.

Sorry, but I thought these were a big waste. Not fit to eat in my opinion, and I certainly would not give to anyone. They stick to your teeth and are messy to make. I won't make again.

I have been making these for years. They are addictive at the very least! To those who don't like nuts, try using coarsly crushed pretzels. To those who complained about them being sticky - you need to boil the syrup longer. A shortcut here will yield a very chewy cookie.

These are really easy and delicious. I LIKE that they don't break up neatly bc they look more like "bark" that way. I added 1/2 cup more chocolate chips to make it very chocolatey. My only suggestion is to let the chocoloate chips sit for about 3-4 minutes before you try to spread them.

loved this!! so did everyone else who tried it. i followed the recipe times exactly (3 minutes boiling and 5-6 mintues in the oven) and they worked perfectly. just watch that the edges don't burn. i did line my baking pan with parchment paper -- no greasing, no cleaning!

These are my go-to cookie for Christmas cookie parties. They are so fun and easy. Someone mentioned that the crackers were floating on top of the butter- that won't happen if you boil the butter and sugar long enough. It will have a sticky consistency at just about 3 minutes- stir constantly. Everything was by the book and they turned out great. I, too, crushed pretzels and they were awesome.

I really wasn't sure how to rate these...they tasted great, but didn't look very appealing. I was planning to use these as holiday gifts. I am glad that I did a trial run ahead of time because they looked awful. But that being said...they tasted wonderful. We ate the whole batch rather quickly. I thank you for the post.

The first time I made this, it was fabulous! The second time I guess I cooked the sugar too long and it was a mess. The third time I got it right again!
