Cookie Tray

Right before Easter, I somehow got an intense need to bake. So along with making cookies and desserts for Easter, I made a cookie tray for my husband's co-workers. They could not have been more grateful. Last week, they sent request via my husband for another tray of goodies. So today, I cleared my schedule (as much as possible anyway!) and went to work. The above picture is the result. I'd love to share the recipes because all the cookies came out delicious!
For today, I'm going to take the easy recipe (I'm too tired to do anything too complicated!). I'll share the other recipes on the next few posts.

Heath Bars are one of my favorite easy cookies to make. They are just so sinful! And they do taste very much like the candy bar they are named after. They are the cookies in the middle of the tray above.

Heath Bars

56 saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
12 ounce bag milk chocolate or semi sweet chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Line a large cookie sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Lay saltines to cover cookie sheet.

Melt butter over medium heat, add brown sugar and bring to a boil for 1 min only. Remove from heat and add baking soda. Pour mixture over crackers, making sure all crackers are covered completely.

Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and sprinkle immediately with chocolate chips. Let chocolate chips melt then spread evenly over crackers. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Let cool in refrigerator or overnight on counter. Break apart when done.
