I saw this on Pinterest and didn’t even think twice about giving it at try. I just had to. I planned on bringing it to a party this past weekend, but I ran out of time so I made it and will surprise the office with a treat tomorrow.
This pin came from A Southern Grace and she does a wonderful job of explaining directions, taking gorgeous pictures and making food that is more than Pin-worthy. I have definitely become a follower of this blog and you should check it out, too.
40 saltine crackers
2 cups (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
Melt the butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan on medium until it begins to boil.
Turn the temperature down to medium-low and simmer until the sugar has dissolved.
Arrange your saltines on a cookie sheet, lined with foil and coated with cooking spray.
Pour the hot butter and sugar mixture over the crackers and spread to coat evenly.
Bake for 8 minutes until hot and bubbly and then cool for about 3 minutes.
Evenly pour the chocolate chips on top of the cracker/toffee layer and allow to melt slightly.
Once they’ve begun to melt, you can use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the entire pan.
Let cool then place in the fridge to set. Once everything has hardened, break into pieces and eat!
I think this recipe is a keeper. I plan on making it again to bring back to MI for Christmas! My only change would be maybe adding some pretzels (or substituting them for the saltines) to give it a bit more crunch.
I did set one dish of these out to snack on, and left them over night. Do not make that mistake. The ones I am bringing into the office are in a tuppreware dish in the fridge, and they held overnight. Definitely keep these sealed up and cool if making them ahead of time.
