Heath Bar Cookies

My Grandmother-in-Law shared this gem with me. Very fab, but ooooh so bad for you.

  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
  • 2 sticks of REAL butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Arrange saltine crackers on it, one layer thick, corner to corner. Melt butter into a small saucepan, add brown sugar. Mix until it begins to bubble, then remove from heat. Add the baking soda and pour onto crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes, or once it begins to bubble. Sprinkle on milk chocolate chips and bake for a minute to melt the chips. Sprinkle with nuts and allow to fully cool. Break apart, store in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator.
