Crunch Bars

This recipe is right up my alley for easy breezy and super tasty!
Not that the butterscotch pie wasn't totally worth it! ;-)

Line cookie sheet with foil. Put a single layer of saltine crackers down.
Melt 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar over medium heat. Bring to boil for 3 minutes. Pour over saltines and put in 350* oven. Bake for 5-7 minutes until golden brown.

Take out of oven and pour about half a bag of chocolate chips over crackers. Let sit (melt). I actually put it back in the warm oven - after I have turned it off. When you see the glossy color on the chips it's time to spread. It should spread rather easily. While chocolate is still warm spread a cup of chopped nuts over. Then press down (you can use a sheet of waxed paper if you don't want to use your hands.) Put in the freezer - let cool completely and then break into pieces.
**Side note - Just so you don't make the same mistake I did - don't try and use white chocolate or butterscotch chips they don't melt like normal chocolate. It was a tasty combination just not pretty**
This was a big hit at one of our Christmas parties. Another really big hit were Pizza Bites. Good Stuff!!

    Yummy. Tried this with Butterbrickle Bits instead of the chocolate. Delicious.
