Saltine Crackers with Chocolate and Pecans, Christmas Candy

Here's a vintage Christmas recipe. I've been making it for decades.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
A Jelly Roll Pan lined with Aluminum Foil sprayed with a Vegetable Cooking Spray.

35 - 40 Saltine Crackers
16 TBS Butter
1 C Brown Sugar
8 oz. of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips  (about 2 Cups)
1 C Chopped Pecans

Arrange the Crackers,( Salt side down),  in a single layer in the Pan.

In a Saucepan on Medium High Heat:
Butter, until melted.
Brown Sugar
Bring to a Boil for a few minutes as it begins to turn Caramel in Color.
Remove from Heat.
Pour over the Crackers and spread evenly with a Metal Offset Spatula.

Bake for 3 - 5 minutes. It should begin to bubble.
Remove Pan from Oven and Sprinkle with Chocolate Chips.
As they Melt, Spread evenly with a Metal Offset Spatula.
Sprinkle evenly with Pecans.

Refrigerate until Chocolate hardens and it's cooled completely.

Remove and Break into Pieces.
Transfer to a Holiday Serving Plate.

Peace in the Kitchen!
