Recipe for Cracker Candy

My college roommate (I won’t tell you how many years ago) emailed me a recipe that she got from her cousin.  This recipe sounds so good & easy to make and would be good for a special holiday or to put in a pretty container and give as a gift:


  • 24 Ritz crackers
  • ¾ cup butter (1 ½ sticks)
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with foil; lightly coat foil with cooking spray.  Arrange crackers in a layer in pan.  In a saucepan, bring butter and brown sugar to a boil; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour mixture over crackers.  Bake 5 minutes; turn off oven.  Sprinkle crackers with chocolate chips and let stand in oven 3 minutes, or until chocolate is melted.  Spread chocolate evenly over crackers.  Sprinkle pecans over chocolate. Let cool, then break into pieces.  Store in airtight container in the fridge.
