  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers (about 40 or 4 ounces)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter (8 oz or 2 sticks)*
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 bag or 12 oz)
  • *If using unsalted crackers and/or butter add ¼ tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 400℉.
  • Line a 10"x15" baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil.  If using regular aluminum foil, coat it with cooking spray.
  • Arrange a single layer of saltine crackers over the bottom of the pan.
  • Place the brown sugar and butter into a saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a full boil. Allow to cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Pour the hot caramel mixture over the crackers and use a spatula to spread it evenly, covering all the crackers. 
  • Put the pan in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes or until the caramel is bubbly.  Remove it from the oven and turn off the heat. 
  • Allow pan to rest for 1 minute.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the caramel.  Use a spatula to evenly distribute and gently press chips into the caramel.  
  • Put the pan back in the hot oven for 1-2 minutes.  Remove and use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly over the caramel crackers.
  • Place the pan on the refrigerator 2 at least two hours.
  • Peel the candy off the aluminum foil and break it apart with your hands to serve.
  • Hack:  Switch this up by using different crackers, such as butter-flavored or graham crackers.  
  • Hack: Use your favorite chocolate (milk, dark or white) in place of the semi-sweet chips.  You can also leave the chocolate off entirely if you prefer.
  • Hack:  Add some fancy pizazz by sprinkling chopped nuts, crushed hard candy or sprinkles over the top of the melted chocolate.  Gently press them into the chocolate before refrigerating.
  • Hack:  Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze them for up to 3 months.
