I have never tasted or even heard of this before, but I thought it sounded tasty and simple so I just made some!  I have been reading all the pages of comments while it cools in the fridge.  Unfortunately it sounds like some have had a bad time using margarine, which I used instead of butter without thinking twice about it.  I have never used butter for anything. (Can you tell I am not a candy-maker?)  Here's hoping it turned out, anyway!

Edit: Just tasted it.  It did not turn out.  It does not "crack."  It's kind of gooey and greasy.  Flavor-wise it is alright I guess...  Sad

Since I'm snowed in today (yay blizzard!) I'm working on my 2nd batch for a cookie exchange at work this week.  Though how I'll be able to leave these alone until the exchange I have NO idea.  LOVE this recipe, I've used yours since you posted it!  Thanks bunches!

I made these again yesterday to take to a friend's house. They loved them! I used cashews as the nuts!

I just made these again with graham crackers instead of saltines and sprinkled with almonds - apparently now it's called almond roca! Still just as fast and delicious, but a little less cost effective.

I put them outside to cool when it's winter.  I made a batch when I got up this morning, then took a shower, and by the time I was dressed, they were ready to come in and be broken up.  Then again, we set a record low today!

For those of you having problems:

I've made this twice now. First time it was terrible. The sugar and the butter didn't combine. Second time it turned out perfect. What happened was you do not want it to be at all liquid. You need to make sure all the sugar has dissolved and you want the mixture to be thick while on the stove. Give it time and it will thicken alot. I kept my temperature exactly in the middle of med to high.

Hope this helps!

OMG it is fabulous, I had a few friends around for dinner last night, and put some shards of this on dessert..they thought it was awesome and spent the rest of the evening eating it...they all want more for christmas!

I used real butter and really good dark belgian chocolate. I have to say that I was unsure about the crackers,  but they are brilliant, they give a crunch and a lightness, without you knowing exactly what they are.

it is soooooooo good and those pseudo saltines from Aldi worked perfectly. I topped mine with chopped salted peanuts..making it cheaper to make and the combination of the salt and sweet is to die for..
