  • 1/4 pound salted saltine crackers (about one sleeve)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup m&m candies chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a 18x13 baking sheet with parchment paper. Place all of the saltines salt side up on the baking sheet in an even layer.
  • Add the sugar, butter, and peanut butter to a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When the mixture is fully boiling, stop stirring and allow to boil for three minutes.
  • Carefully pour the boiling mixture over the crackers and put in the oven for five minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Return to the oven for 1 minute.
  • Spread the chocolate chips out into an even layer and sprinkle the m&ms over the chocolate. 
  • Let cool on the counter for about 20 minutes. Place in the freezer for an hour and then break apart into small pieces.
