  • 30 saltines
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Spray with a nonstick cooking spray (15X10X1 inch)
  • Lay Saltines in a single layer in a pan.
  • Add butter and brown sugar to a heavy-bottomed saucepan and melt over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook just until it turns caramel color, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt. Pour mixture evenly over crackers.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. Let sit a couple of minutes, then using an offset spatula and spread chocolate to cover. Sprinkle top with pecans. 
  • Let cool then refrigerate until completely cold, at least 4-6 hours. Peel away the foil and cut or break into pieces.
