Barb Allport's Soda Cracker Cookies

· 35 soda crackers
· 1 cup butter
· 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
· 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
· 1 cup packed brown sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 15 x 10 inch baking pan with foil and grease it well. Line the pan with soda crackers. 
2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and cook stirring it until it dissolves. Bring to a boil and cook about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Immediately pour mixture over the soda crackers. 
3. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until the mixture starts to bubble. Spread the chocolate chips over the hot cookies. Let set for a minute. Spread the chocolate evenly. Sprinkle with nuts. Let cool, then cut into bars.

I just received a report from Barb. It seems that both her husband, Duane and I are not on top of our games today. I haven't heard how Tom is doing. We are attributing this unease to the large quantity of spicy food (and sweet cookies) we ate, rather than the copious amount of wine we drank before, during, and after the meal. It started with bottles of some nice Cabernets and ended with tipping and shaking the carton to get the last of the White Zin out. Then when it was late and we couldn't find any more wine, we walked home to our waiting beds.
