We Call It Crack

It's Soda Cracker Chocolate Candy, but we call it Crack for short. Not short for Cracker, but because it's freakin' ADDICTIVE.

Here's a recipe from Taste of Home Recipes:

  • Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling
  • Yield: 30 Servings
  • 35 to 40 soda crackers
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
  • Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place crackers in rows on foil. In a saucepan, melt butter; add the brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Pour over crackers and spread until completely covered. Bake at 350° for 5 minutes (crackers will float). Remove from the oven. Turn oven off. Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over crackers. Return to the oven until chocolate is melted, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from the oven; using a greased spatula, press walnuts into chocolate. Cut into 1 in. squares while warm. Cool completely; remove candy from foil. Yield: about 5 dozen.

Jean, I hope you love these as much as I do. I even catch my husband sneaking pieces, and he always claims he doesn't care one way or another about sweets. Ha!
