"Most people are surprised to learn the recipe includes soda crackers." Married for 22 years, the couple recently retired and sold their ranch. Both love to cook.

"I just attempted this recipe, the chocolate chips wouldn't melt. So, I was left w/ gritty chocolate that I couldn't smooth. Any ideas where I might've went wrong? I remember making this all the time when I was in highschool. I used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. Help!"

"My sister-in-law told me about this recipe first then I found it here. So simple to make and while it is a little rich, it is very tasty. Would make a great gift to make for any occasion! I will be making this recipe again!"
