"I made these for a baby shower and they were a pleasant surprise."

 

35 premium plus crackers

½ c butter

½ c firmly packed light brown sugar

1 pkg (8 oz) semi sweet chocolate, chopped (I used chocolate chips)

1 c walnuts (could use less)

 

Preheat oven to 400ºF.  Place crackers in a single layer on foil-lined 15x10x1 inch baking pan.

Heat butter and sugar in a sauce pan over med-high heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Bring to a boil; boil for 3 minutes without stirring. Spread over crackers.

 

Bake for 7 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with chopped chocolate; let stand for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate over top. *Sprinkle with walnuts. Cool. Cut or break into pieces.

 

* If you don't get the walnuts on while chocolate is still soft they don't stay on very well.
