I made this today with my 5 year old grandson. It was so easy!! He did most the work (Daddy helped pouring over the butter/sugar mixture and I helped spreading the melted chips). He decided to use Christmas sprinkles instead of pecans. Taste....3 thumbs up from Drew, Grandpa and Daddy!!
Delicious! I also made a batch with white chips for my sister who can't eat chocolate. I may like the taste even more!
My Dad had this recipe at Christmas one year and showed me how to make it . I've continued to make if every year since !! His recipe was called "The Best Cracker Recipe" and it is !!!
I made this recently. It was both easy and delicious!
I have made this several times and have used different flavored chips, dark, white, milk....and have also put different toppings. Pecans, toffee chips, and it worked out great.
I tried this recipe for the first time tonight and I liked the way it turned out. I made a few tweaks though, I added two tablespoons more brown sugar and only baked it for about 5 minutes. Covering with foil helps the chips melt. I can’t wait to have my friends and family try it !
This is a simple recipe but like most candy recipes, the cooking times should be followed carefully. Undercooking the butter/brown sugar results in a grainy mixture & overcooking in the oven results in a hard candy layer & neither make for optimum taste/texture.The chocolate chips melt quickly & spread easily. I wonder if the other reveiwer realizes that they don’t change shape as they melt? I use an offset spatula & they spread like soft butter.
Family favorite, been making it for many years. I do a lot of baking but never candy, this was easy to follow and achieve great results. Thank you. We call it “HoBo toffee”

This is GREAT! We made many times before, but have another name for this candy-- "Jenky Candy".Follow the recipe! A couple changes I've made: add a few shakes of salt to the sugar/butter mix,use more crackers than listed (maybe 8-10 more). Cook the butter/sugar for the required time. And be patient while they cool.
