This is a recipe that was shared last year but for those of you who haven't made it - it's the best!

Soda Cracker Candy - (English Toffee Crunchies)
3/4 (10 oz0 package saltine crackers - I used Club Crackers
1 C Butter
1 C Brown Sugar
1 - 12 oz bag of semi sweet choc. chips.
1-1/2 C chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds (I used pecans)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 10x15 inch cookie sheet with foil. I used heavy foil and didn't have to spray it.
Place crackers in a single layer over prepared sheet. Cover whole sheet - crackers touching.
In a 2 qt saucepan over low heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Set timer for 3 or 4 minutes. Temp should reach 270 on candy thermometer. Pour over crackers and spread evenly with back of spoon.
Bake in a preheated oven for 5 minutes.
Take out of oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips over evenly - let set for a minute so they can melt. Spread evenly with the back of a spoon. It will spread nicely when they are melted. Sprinkle nuts over top and press into chocolate. Chill and then break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
