Soda Cracker Candy


Saltine crackers in candy? This recipe starts with a layer of crackers that are drenched in melted butter and brown sugar, quickly baked, topped with chocolate chips and almonds, then chilled until firm. It may sound odd, but if you like Almond Roca candy, you'll love this recipe. My kids want this every Christmas, and now my grandkids are asking for it too. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
