Easy Almond Roca

This has become one of our favorite kinds of candy to make.  It's extremely easy, keeps well in the fridge, and tastes wonderful.  I've forgotten what it was originally called.  It reminded me so much of almond roca, I had to rename it!  If I ever get a picture taken, I'll come back and add one.

40   Saltines
1 c  Butter; don't use margarine (2 cubes)
1 c  LIGHT brown sugar; not dark; packed
12 oz Chocolate chips
½ - 1 c  Nuts; chopped, YOUR choice
 
Line up the saltines on a foil-lined jelly roll pan that makes a bigger rim than the pan. There should be 5 rows of 8.

Melt butter and sugar. Stir often and bring to a full rolling boil for 3 minutes.  Pour over saltines and bake in a 400 oven for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips and wait until they are almost melted, then spread over all the saltines.  Scatter the nuts evenly over the top.  Cool, cover with aluminum foil.

Refrigerate for a few hours then break into pieces.  Store in airtight container in fridge.
