Mark Pfaff's Grandma's Stuff

This was a favorite of Carrie's in high school, made by her friend Mark Pfaff's grandma. Since it didn't really have a name, it simply became Mark Pfaff's grandma's stuff. Whatever you call it, though, it's really easy, really delicious, and really addictive. It sort of tastes like a Heath or Skor bar. It's great for office parties, groups of kids, etc.

Saltine crackers (about 48)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
12 oz. chocolate chips
Chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
Line a jelly roll pan (with sides) with foil.
Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray (important!).
Place a single layer of saltines on the foil (it takes about 48).
Boil together 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup butter for 2 minutes.
Spoon mixture evenly over the crackers.
Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes until top is bubbly.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with 12 oz. of chocolate chips.
When chips have melted, spread the chocolate carefully with a knife.
Sprinkle with chopped pecans (optional).
Break into pieces when cool. (You can speed the cooling in the refrigerator.)
