Saltine Cracker Brittle

This weekend I was at Kerr Lake with My Love & his fishing club.  I needed to come up with something for these guys to snack on while getting their fishing gear together for the 2 day tournament.  I have found pure goodness with this treat!!  This recipe is something inexpensive to make & oh so Delicious.  You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.


About 40  saltine crackers enough to line your Cookie Sheet.
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line your cookie sheet with aluminum foil then add the saltine crackers.

In a microwavable bowl melt 2 sticks of butter for 2 minutes.  Then add brown sugar cook for another 2 minutes, stir often.  Pour over crackers.  Place in 350 degree oven & cook for 17 ~ 20 minutes.  This will bubble but don’t burn.

Remove from oven & sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and let sit a couple of minutes to melt, then spread crackers with the melted chocolate.  Top with 3/4 cup chopped pecans if desired.

Place in refrigerator for 1 hour to chill, once completely cool, break into pieces.  I stored individual servings in containers for the guys to take out on the lake.
TIP: Spoon the butter & brown sugar mixture onto the saltine crackers to make the mixture cover evenly. The butter may separate, that’s OK. Pour what’s left on the crackers.
Huge Thanks to
