I don't know what I could possibly write here that the title doesn't already tell you, except maybe that they're my mama-in-law's recipe that was in the family cookbook she gave me last Christmas. Homemade Heath bars. HEATH BARS! Completely and ridiculously unhealthy but so, so good - and worth it. If you need to bring a last-minute treat to a New Year's party, I suggest these...if they even make it out of your house.
Homemade Heath bars
1 sleeve saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Place crackers on the foil, as close together as possible, in a single layer.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Once melted, add sugar and let it come to a boil for one minute.
Pour mixture over crackers.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the butter and sugar mixture is nicely browned.
Take out of oven and sprinkle entire bag of chocolate chips evenly across the crackers. As the chocolate chips start to melt, spread the chocolate to evenly cover the top of the crackers.
Put in fridge/freezer/outdoors to cool.
Once cool, break into chunks.
