I got this recipe from this board several years ago, and made it that night for my local club dinner. Everyone raved about it, and one of the other ladies now makes it every year for our gathering. Well last night was this year's party, and she made two versions of it. The original version is fabulous and the "new improved" version was invented because she has a friend who doesn't like chocolate (go figure!?). Anyways, in place of the chocolate chips she used Reeses Peanut Butter Chips. She says they didn't melt and spread as well - she had to spread them with a spoon - but I can attest they turned out DELICIOUS.

So if you are looking for a good, quick, easy, and not too expensive recipe for a dessert/candy, you must try this (either version):

Almond Roca type bars

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a cookie sheet with saltine crackers, (salt side up). This will be about one sleeve of crackers.

In saucepan boil 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 cup butter for 3 minutes, and then dump over the crackers. (Don't worry about getting over every bit, will spread out in the oven).
Bake for 7 minutes.

When out of the oven sprinkle one bag of toll house chocolate chips on top.(**Alternate recipe - use a bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips - yummy!) In 4-5 minutes the chips should have melted enough for you to spread the chocolate evenly over the top. Cool the tray either outside, (if you live where it's cold), or in the fridge, until the chocolate sets.

Pop out of the cookie sheet, and break into pieces. Store in cool dry containers, (covered).

Sprinkle sliced or crushed almonds on top of the chocolate after you spread it out, but before you
set it to
