Sweet & Salty Crack {dessert}

Today I'm sharing a recipe that I've been making for years. I can't remember where I originally found it and when searching the internet the only thing that comes close to the one I used long ago, is this recipe. There are tons of recipes like this out there but if you haven't seen it before, you need to and you're welcome :)

This is such an easy and tasty dessert to bring to any party!

Need it:

I sleeve of saltine crackers
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 oz of chocolate chips of your choice

Make it:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick spray.  Lay out your saltines salt side down.

In a medium saucepan, melt your butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil for about 2 minutes, it will turn a caramel color

Remove from heat and pour all over the saltines. Bake in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly

Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips all over - wait about 30 seconds and then start to spread the chocolate all over the saltines.

Pop the baking sheet in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes then take out and break apart the crackers. They will not look perfect but will taste heavenly! Store in an air tight container in the fridge until ready to serve. 


Have you ever made this before?
