1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks/10 oz/280g) butter, divided
35 to 40 soda crackers
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with heavy-duty foil.
Melt 1/4 cup (1/2 stick/2 oz/56g) butter in medium saucepan. Pour into prepared jelly-roll pan. Arrange crackers over butter, breaking crackers to fit empty spaces.
Melt remaining butter in same saucepan; add sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sweetened condensed milk. Pour over crackers.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and slightly darkened. Remove from oven; cool for 1 minute.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand for 5 minutes or until chips are shiny; spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts; press into chocolate. Cool in pan on wire rack for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Remove foil; cut into pieces.
Makes approximately 50 pieces.
