Christmas Crack

Sweet and Saltine–a clever name for the sensation of the taste buds kicking in as they experience a little bit sweet and a little bit salty in every bite.

It’s Christmas Crack, named because you crack it apart, however, after your first taste, you’ll also discover it’s also ADDICTING. We’re on our third batch in two days and we haven’t even made any gifts with it…I keep hiding it, but we keep finding it!

Christmas Crack Recipe Ingredients:

3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 package chocolate chips or Hershey Kisses
3/4 cup chopped pecans(optional)
1 Cup Crushed Candy Canes (optional)

Christmas Crack Recipe Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a 10″ x 15″ cookie sheet (I use a jelly roll pan because it has edges) with foil and lightly grease with butter. 

Cover the cookie sheet with a single layer of saltines.

Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil.  Boil for 4 minutes, stirring with a whisk.

Pour over the saltines, and try to spread it as evenly as possible.

Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Upon removing the sugar mixture will be molten–be careful!
If your saltines shifted while in the oven, rearrange with a fork.
Allow to cool about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the saltines and let sit for about 5 minutes to melt. Note: We have also placed one Hershey’s Peppermint Kiss on each saltine for a variation of flavor.

Once melted spread chocolate evenly.  If desired, sprinkle on pecans or crushed candy canes and press lightly into the chocolate.
Allow to  cool and then transfer to refrigerator to harden.
Once it has hardened, break the candy into small pieces and place in containers.

WARNING: Christmas Crack is addictive.

Not only to EAT but to MAKE…my husband will even participate in this  kitchen creation!
