Tasty Tuesday–Christmas Cracker Candy

This is a fairly common recipe, so you may have seen it before. If not, let me warn you…it’s extraordinarily addictive! I take no responsibility for the fact that you may want to eat the entire pan before it’s even cooled all the way. Just buy enough ingredients to make two batches…that’s my best advice. Not that I know from experience or anything!

Christmas cracker candy

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 c. light brown sugar
  • saltine crackers (about a sleeve and a half)
  • 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400.

Line a 10×15 cookie sheet (with sides) with foil. Place a single layer of saltines over the foil.

Melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil, stirring constantly, for three minutes.

Pour butter mixture evenly over saltines.

Bake for 5 minutes.

Let stand for a minute or two, then sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over pan, spreading as they melt. (Some people like to get fancy and sprinkle chopped nuts over the top before the chocolate sets, but I’m a purist, so I leave them out.)

Cool completely, then peel off foil and crack into pieces.

Refrigerate until serving.
