Directions:
Preheat oven to 300F. Line a 15 x 10 x 1 pan with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Line up crackers in a single layer in rows on foil.

Meanwhile, using a candy thermometer, melt butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 to 3 minutes (270 to 290 degrees if using a candy thermometer). Immediately pour over crackers and spread evenly with a spatula.

Bake 5 minutes or until the candy hardens (300 to 310 degrees if using a candy thermometer). Remove from oven.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second increments at 50% power until melted. Spread over hardened caramel.

Sprinkle nuts or other toppings and press into the chocolate using a greased spatula. Cut into squares while warm. Cool completely and store in the refrigerator.

Now, pop the pan in the oven for 5 minutes to continue cooking the caramel to hard-crack stage (300 degrees to 310 degrees). Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second increments at 50% power until melted (stirring after each increment). Spread over the hardened caramel.

Next, toppings. Pecans and walnuts are classics, but M&Ms, crushed OREOs, pretzels, toffee bits, or drizzles of other chocolate are ALL GREAT IDEAS!
