This recipe is on the back of a box of Kroger Saltines crackers.

TIP: The cookie sheet that I used when I made this recipe has one side to slid the cookies off from when you bake cookies, the cookie sheet is an older one. I did have foil on the cookie sheet. I did not have the foil extended high enough around the open edge. The mixture of butter and brown sugar that was on the crackers and was baking at 400 degrees for the 5 minutes. Some of the mixture boiled off of the crackers and cookie sheet and spilled in the oven. The oven started smoking and then the smoke alarms went off here in the house. If you make this delicious chocolate treat be sure the foil will catch the mixture of the butter and brown sugar. The mixture of butter and brown sugar is part of the reason this treat is so good, makes me think of a toffee.
