Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a 9 by 13″ pan with foil or parchment paper. Note if you don’t have foil or parchment paper spray a cooking spray on the pan.

Next, spread crackers in a single layer in the pan. I used a heavy saucepan over medium heat to bring to boil the butter and brown sugar mixture. Note this recipe can be doubled and made in a jelly roll pan.

After removing the Easter cracker candy from the oven, immediately sprinkle the white candy melts and spread with a spatula. While still hot, add sprinkles and candies. Cool completely, then remove candy from the pan using the foil.
