Christmas Crack....

It's Christmastime!!  Hooray!  Now you HAVE to make Christmas Crack!!!!! (But just to be perfectly honest, we make this year 'round and always have requests for more, More, MORE!!!)

What exactly is it and why is it called that?  It's an easy version of toffee using saltine crackers.  And it's called that because it's SOOOOOOOO addictive!!!!  I doubt one little bite is going to cut it for you. You're going to want a couple of pieces at least!!!

Here's what you need....
-brown sugar
-saltine crackers
-chocolate chips

First thing you do is lay your saltine crackers on your cookie sheet.  Trust me when I tell you that laying parchment paper underneath is the easiest way to clean up!!

Next, bring butter and brown sugar to a boil.

Then you'll spread the butter/brown sugar mixture on the saltine crackers.

After that, it all goes in the oven. When time is up, it should look similar to this.

Immediately pour the entire bag of chocolate chips over the sugary, buttery crackers and let sit.

When times up you'll spread the now-melted chocolate chips all over the toffee.

Last, you'll put the pan in the fridge to cool completely. Then you'll break it into chunks of whatever size your family likes best.  Not pretty, but pretty is NOT what matters here. We want FLAVOR!!!

Christmas Crack

-1 sleeve saltine crackers (make sure it's regular and NOT unsalted!!!)
-2 sticks salted butter
-1 cup brown sugar
-1 (12 oz) package of your favorite brand semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  

First, on a parchment lined cookie sheet with sides, lay out all your saltine crackers.  Next, combine butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes and then pour over arranged crackers and make sure you spread it out to cover the crackers.  Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.  Remove and immediately pour entire bag of chocolate chips over the top.  Let sit 5-6 minutes until chips are very very soft and melted and then smooth them out.  Let this cool completely in your refrigerator (it's faster this way!!!) and then, when the chocolate is very firm, break into pieces.  

I am unable to tell you how long this will keep because it's never made it longer than 2 days without being eaten up!

I’ve made this recipe before. It was so good, I could never make it again, lest I eat the whole thing and gain 10 pounds. I am going to pin this, and possibly take it to a party. That way, I will only be able to eat a piece or two at the most.
