1 pack of saltine crackers

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup cream

9-12 oz. dark chocolate (disks, chips or chunks)

1/2 cup (or more) toasted chopped pecans (or other nuts)

2-3 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled

Line the crackers facing up, side to side in a lined baking pan. In a saucepan, heat the brown sugar and cream to boiling and simmer gently for about 5 minutes, stirring.
 Carefully pour the brown sugar toffee over the crackers in your pan and bake in the oven on preheated 350F for about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate all over the toffee. Let rest for a few minutes, then using a spatula, spread the melted chocolate out evenly. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and bacon and allow to cool for 15 more minutes. Place in the refrigerator to help set the chocolate for about 20 minutes or more.

Break into pieces and serve, or you can hold in an airtight container or freezer for a couple days.
