Cover a large sided cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Cover with crackers edge to edge to fill up the tin. In a medium sauce pan melt 1 1/4 C. butter. Add 1 1/4 C. brown sugar to the butter and boil for 3 minutes. Pour carefully over the crackers smoothing to cover them nicely. Bake until they are bubbling all over the top and starting to brown just a little, 8-10 minutes 350 (if you undercook they won't be crunchy) Cool for 1 minute. Sprinkle with 1 large pkg. chocolate chips (I often use 1 1/2 pkg. of chips...more chocolate!) Put back in the warm oven for a minute or two until the chips are melting. Spread them to cover the top. Add chopped toasted almonds or any other nut or no nuts as you prefer. Press into the chocolate. I usually make half and half for the non nuts. A pizza cutter works well to cut them into squares.Break or cut apart.
Half the recipe if you don't want this much but they freeze nicely and are nice to have around for a little treat.
Cutting in the pan.
