I had a friend years ago who made this. I loved it. I tried to make it once and for some reason mine turned out greasy and soft. I wondered if I didn't cook the sugar and butter long enough. I'd forgotten all about it...I'm going to try it again.

This sounds good. I've never heard of it with the crackers, but looks very tasty.

Sounds great! I love brittle of any kind, especially with lots and lots of nuts. I'd have to opt for dark chocolate, though :)

Who would guess that a humble cracker is the foundation of this lucious dessert? This recipe is on my "to do" list. Thanks!
