Caramel crackers

When I was a new bride, my grandma taught me this recipe.
She and I were just hanging out and we wanted something sweet. 

It's easy, fast and cheap! 

Caramel Crackers

One sleeve plus a little more Saltine crackers
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag chocolate chips
Chopped nuts, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line crackers in a buttered jelly roll pan.
In a saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar.
Heat to boiling.
Turn heat down and continue boiling for 1 to 2 minutes. 
Pour mixture over crackers.
Bake for 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Spread the chocolate chips so the heat melts them.
Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.
Score and refrigerate until firm.
You could even omit the chocolate for a true caramel taste.

Have a lovely day!
