Chocolate Saltine Pecan Crunch

chocolatesaltines

Every year for the last 3 years I have made chocolate crunch with different layers of chocolate. This year I wanted to try something new. I thought using chocolate and saltines was the weirdest combination until I tasted it! To my surprise it was awesome! Crunchy, sweet, salty, it has everything you want in a chocolate crunch recipe.  I’ve added a bit more then pecans as you will see in my ingredients. Chocolate saltine pecan crunch is great for the holidays, or any day for that matter. I plan to take mine to my brother’s house for New Years Eve, if it lasts the next few days in my house!

Ingredients

2 sticks butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 bag white chocolate chips

1/2 cup heath bar bits

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 sleeve saltine crackers, about 40

First you’ll want to line up your crackers side by side in a baking tray. Next a medium sized pan, melt your butter and add brown sugar.  When combined and melted, immediately pour on top of crackers. Spread out with a spatula until every cracker is covered in sugar and butter. Next while the mixture is still hot, sprinkle on your chocolate chips. Let them melt for a minute and spread the chocolate out until covering the crackers as well. Next, take your pecans, and heath bar, and add as your topping. Let sit for a few minutes and cool in the refrigerator until firm enough to break into pieces. Once it has cooled enough cut or break off into what ever size crunch you like. Place on a dish or store in Tupperware for safe keeping! Enjoy!

Recommendations

Add chocolate bars on top instead of chips for melting.

Use another type of chocolate completely instead of white.

Add, dried fruits, other nuts, granola, or anything you can think of as a favorite topping.
