Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a large jelly roll pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Line the bottom of the pan evenly with saltine crackers.

In a medium pot, combine the butter and sugar over medium-low heat. Stirring constantly, bring to a rolling boil and cook 3 minutes, or until bubbling and amber in color. Remove pan from heat and pour evenly over saltine crackers. Spread brown sugar mixture with a knife–it doesn’t have to be perfect because it will spread as it bakes.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Once melted, spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle M&M’s (or nuts) over the top and place in the freezer 15 minutes, or until hardened.

Let sit 15 minutes on the counter. Flip over onto a cutting board and remove the foil. Break into pieces.


  • Use ritz or graham crackers as the base
  • Use a white chocolate or drizzle white chocolate over the top of the chocolate
  • Add chopped nuts
  • Add sprinkles for holidays or color
