Please welcome Real Estate Woman-preneur, Nancy Pugliese to the blog as she shares this easy-to-prepare, wonderfully delicious, chocolaty treat. They are addictive, hence the title “Cracker Crack.”
Saltine Cracker Toffee (aka “Cracker Crack”)
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Total time from start to finish: 20 minutes
40 (or more if needed) Saltine Crackers (salted)
1 Cup Butter (unsalted)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (or milk or dark chocolate chops, your choice)
Preheat oven to 400F
Line a cookie sheet with as many of the Saltine Crackers that it will take to fill your cookie sheet (approx. 40).
Please note: Do not overlap and do not place the crackers on top of each other.
Add butter and brown sugar in a pot, stir mixture, and bring to a boil,. Once the mixture is boiling, continue stirring and boiling for three minutes. Mixture should be a deep, caramel color.
Remove pot from heat and immediately pour the mixture over the Saltine Crackers, ensuring that every single cracker is covered by the caramel mixture.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 6 minutes. The crackers should look all bubbly.
Remove tray from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top, and let sit for a few minutes to allow chocolate to melt. Once chocolate has melted, spread the melted chocolate to cover all the crackers.
**Optional** You can add chopped nuts on top.
Allow the crackers to cool completely, then break into pieces, or you can use a knife to cut them into pieces.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. You may not want to share with your family and friends once you taste one…that’s okay, I won’t judge you.
