Candied Graham Crackers

I clearly remember one summer night pregnant with my first born and craving something sweet, salty and chocolate. I came across this recipe and knew I had every ingredient in my pantry. It took minutes to assemble, alittle more time to cool, but I was able to enjoy my snack the same evening.

24 Graham Crackers
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips

(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
(2) Lightly grease a 10x15" pan - choose one with edges.
(3) Line pan with graham crackers.
(4) In a saucepan combine the butter and brown sugar until melted.
(5) Pour sugar mixture over grahams. May have to use a spatula to help distribute the sugar mixture.
(6) Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes.
(7) Remove from oven and immediately cover evenly with chocolate chips. Once chips have melted smooth chocolate over the grahams.
(8) Cool in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened.
(9) Break into pieces and store in Tupperware container.

Helpful Hints:
(1) A good friend of mine uses saltine crackers instead of the graham crackers. It is actually REALLY good too. Try it both ways and see which one you like best.
