Upon inspiration from Anna at Cookie Madness and in need of an easy snack to take to Bible study tonight, I made the ever popular cracker candy. I made some slight modifications to the recipe. I also found that I prefered the candy straight out of the refrigerator rather than at room temperature. But then again, that tends to be how I like fruit as well...wait...that doesn't really make much sense does it? Candy...fruit? Anyway...

Cracker Candy
24 whole wheat saltine crackers (covers bottom of 13 X 9 pan)
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
hand full of pecans (optional)
2/3-1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 F. In a 13 X 9 pan place a sheet of parchment paper. Cover this with the saltine crackers. Put pecans on top of crackers. Melt margarine in a sauce pan. Add the sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over crackers and spread. Place in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately put chocolate on top. After a minute or so, spread the now soft chocolate. Place in refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes. Remove from pan and paper. Break into toffee pieces and enjoy!

I've made this in the past but we're nut-free now and I can't imagine it without the nuts. It was good, though.
