40 Ritz™ crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 bag (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips (abt 2 cups) or (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips (abt 2 cups)
1 tablespoon candy sprinkles, nuts or other decorations
Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Spray foil generously with cooking spray. Place crackers in single layer, salt side down in pan.
In 2-quart saucepan, cook and stir butter, sugar, and salt over medium heat until butter is melted. Heat to boiling, gently stirring, being careful to not splash mixture up the sides of the pan. Once boiling, stir no longer but continue to boil until light brown color, three to four minutes, washing down any crystals on the side of the pan with a pastry brush dipped in water. Remove from heat. Add vanilla; stir until blended. Immediately pour mixture evenly over crackers in pan; spread to cover.
Bake about 10 minutes or until bubbly and brown in color. Remove from oven. Quickly sprinkle chocolate chips on top of cracker mixture. Cover with a larger pan, being careful not to touch the chocolate with the pan (or use heavy duty aluminum foil.) Let stand 5 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly over cracker mixture. While chocolate is still wet, decorate as desired.
Cool completely, about 2 hours or until chocolate is set. Peel off foil and break into pieces. Store covered up to 1 week.
