Chocolate Break Up

This is a recipe from my mother-in-law. She usually makes this around the holidays along with all her other candies. These are like little toffee, chocolate bars. The chopped pecans or heath bars on top are optional. She usually sprinkles hers with red and green sprinkles around Christmas time. -Kristin

saltine crackers
1/8 t. salt
1 stick of butter
1/2 c. sugar
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans or crushed Heath Bars
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cover the bottom of a jelly roll pan with parchement paper or foil that is sprayed.
  • Line the pan with saltine crackers.
  • Sprinkle with salt.
  • In a saucepan, bring to a boil the butter and sugar.
  • Pour butter mixture over the crackers.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
