This brittle-like dessert is a star-spangled sweet treat. It keeps in the freezer so it’s easy to grab when the fireworks start in your neighborhood this 4th.
Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and cover with saltine crackers edge to edge. Melt 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup brown sugar in the microwave. Gentle spread the butter sugar mixture over the crackers and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and evenly top with 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Let set 1 minute, then spread gently with spoon. Top with finely chopped pecans or walnuts. Cool in refrigerator. Break apart and store in freezer.
