My friend's mother-in-law taught us to make this simple candy our senior year of college and it rocked our world.
It didn't hurt that we could grab all of the ingredients necessary from our college's dining hall and then cook them up in our shabby little off campus kitchen. I still make this simple candy now and it's always a HUGE hit.
1 sleeve of saltines
1 11-ounce bag of chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate, but Mrs. G uses white chocolate)
1 cup of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup of walnuts (you can also use pecans, almonds, etc)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then line a cookie sheet with tin foil and cover with a single layer of saltines.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar...
...and let it get nice and bubbly.
Pop into the oven for 10 minutes. It'll get brown and bubbly.
Pull out of the oven and sprinkle your chocolate chips on top. Once they begin to melt spread them over the brown sugar/butter crackers.
While the chocolate layer is still hot and melty, sprinkle the walnuts on top:
Set aside the whole tray and let everything cool off (pop into the fridge if you're in a rush).
Layers of crispy, salty, buttery HEAVEN.
