Before Christmas I searched for many hours for recipes

to give as gifts for  my family and friends. I stumbled upon
this recipe for Saltine Cracker candy on one of my favorite Mom
blogs Mommy’s Kitchen. Would be a perfect gift also to give to your valentine for Valentines day.  

From what I can tell this recipe is popping up all over. I couldn’t believe all the buzz about it. So I decided to try it out for myself. I have to tell you  if you make this candy you will be addicted. It was so good. I just couldn’t believe what the ingredients were. Saltines, chocolate chips, pecan pieces brown sugar, and butter This candy if you have your eyes closedwill remind you of Almond Roca candy which I love. I posted a pic of this candy on Facebook today and had many comments. So I am posting the recipe for my readers. Enjoy!

These are the ingredients for the recipe. You will need Original Premium Saltines, Nestle Chocolate Chips, Pecans, butter and brown sugar. Sound simple? Yes it is.
Place brown sugar and butter in a sauce pan over
medium heat. Stir constantly to prevent burning.
Once you bring to a boil set your timer for 3 minutes. 

Prepare a large cookie sheet by lining it with foil. i used a  throw away foil cookie sheet  but you can use either one.
 Pour brown sugar mixture over saltine crackers. Place in a 400
degree oven for 5 minutes. Sprinkle 12oz package of chocolate chips on top. Spread chocolate when melted over crackers until
all saltines are covered. Sprinkle with pecans.I used
the cookie pecan bits for this recipe. You can also use almonds . It’s really up to you. Just make sure they are in small pieces.

 Refrigerate candy for 2 hours. Break into pieces and watch
it disappear. I know you are gonna love it.
