“Quick and easy candy dish! Using saltine crackers believe it or not! We went to a party and this was a dish to pass -- that disappeared first! (If you like Heath bars, you'll love this recipe!)”
40-50 pieces

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
  3. Lay the saltine crackers in the pan (single layer), you may not use the whole pkg depending on the size of the pan.
  4. Sometimes I have 3-6 crackers left over.
  5. In a saucepan melt the butter and sugar together.
  6. Bring to a boil.
  7. When comes to a boil, pour over the crackers.
  8. Put cracker pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes (DO NOT OVER BAKE-- EXACTLY 10 MIN).
  9. It will caramelize a little.
  10. Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.
  11. When the chips begin to melt spread to the edges of the pan.
  12. Cool completely.
  13. When completely cool break randomly into small pieces (about 1 inch works well).
  14. This recipe is so easy and quick!
  15. At our house it rarely lasts more than a day--our kids and their friends beg us to make it when they come over too!
  16. Enjoy!
