Quick Dessert Option - Saltine Candy Bars

Have you ever been in a hurry and need a quick idea for a dessert?

Have you ever wanted to whip something together really quick to have on hand for an evening of fun and could not figure out what to make?  

Have you ever simply had the craving for a yummy chocolate sweet and didn't quite know what you wanted?  

I might have an option for you!

First you will need to make sure you have the following ingredients:
**Saltine crackers
**Brown Sugar
**Chocolate of choice
**Toppings per your desire, such as coconut, peanuts, pecans . . . whatever you would typically like in a candy bar.

~Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
~Simply grab a cookie sheet and line it with foil.   
~Then lay out the saltine crackers on the cookie sheet filling all the space.  
~Over the stove, mix 1 cup of  butter with 1 cup of brown sugar
~Bring to a boil and boil 2-3 minutes
~Pour over crackers and spread across them all.
~Place cookie sheet in oven for 4-6 minutes
~Remove and place chocolate on sugared crackers to melt.  This can be your choice of chocolate bag of chocolate chips or chocolate bars ( semi-sweet, milk, white, dark )  ....whatever is your favorite
Let melt and spread over entire pan
~Add toppings if desired (Coconut, pecans, peanuts...)
~Place in fridge until chilled
~Break into pieces.
