Directions: Line a 9×12 baking dish with foil and coat with non stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of the dish with a layer of graham crackers – you may need to break crackers in pieces to get them to fit). On the stove, bring butter and brown sugar to boil for about 3 minutes – do NOT allow mixture to burn. Pour mixture evenly over the crackers and then bake in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Spread chocolate chips around the top until they melt. Sprinkle nuts on top and press gently into the chocolate. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until hard. Break into pieces to serve. Store in an airtight container. Yields about 2 dozen pieces.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
