Scrolling through Pinterest these popped out and grabbed my chubby cheeks and said "make me", who can argue with Pinterest?
I knew i had these simple ingredients on hand, I looked up a few more recipes, took away some tips and here ya go.....OMG!
Line a cookie sheet (with an edge0 with foil and spray liberally with a cooking spray. Line up your crackers, don't overlap them but feel free to use broken ones, when they are covered in toffee you'll never know!
In a saucepan melt a cup of butter and a cup of brown sugar, bring to a boil and IMPORTANT - allow to boil for 3 minutes, no less. This will be your toffee base and you want it thick.
See, all thick, gooey and bubbly.
Now pour the mixture over your crackers, spread evenly to cover the entire pan.
All ready for the oven, 400 for 5-6 minutes.
Out of the oven and still bubbling, my mouth is watering already!
Sprinkle with 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips and allow to sit for a minute or two until they start melting. If they need help, pop them bake in the 'turned off' but still warm oven for about a minute.
Spread chocolate chips with a spatula to 'ice' the cracker mixture.
Now wait for them to cool...
This is the toughest step, it took about 2 hours to cool completely so I suggest running on a treadmill, going for a job, some jumping jacks maybe. Be proactive, these are highly addictive.
Or.... just go online and surf pinterest some more :)
All cooled - FINALLY!!
Ready to break or cut up....oh the anticipation!
Many of the recipes I looked up called these 'Christmas Crack' but I say, why limit yourself to Christmas, these should be made weekly, ok, monthly...they are so easy and so good! No one will ever know you didn't slave over an oven making these, no one I served them to knew there were crackers in the recipe.
40 or so saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

.2.Line cookie sheet with foil & spray with cooking spray, lay saltine crackers in single layer.
3.In a saucepan combine the brown sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread t cover crackers completely.
4.Bake at 400 degrees F for 5 to 6 minutes.
5.Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate.
