Christmas Crack - the Most Incredibly Addicting Christmas Treat !!!!! #Recipe #baking #christmas

Besides the odd name of this creation " Christmas Crack" . When you combine saltine crackers, butter, brown sugar and chocolate together. You will find a very addictive treat you can not put down ! I am in process of creating Christmas treats that can freeze and travel over this holiday , and OMG is this one a hit !!!

2 Sleeves of Saltines
3 Sticks of Butter or Margarine 
1 1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
3 Cups of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips


Step 1
Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray heavy with nonstick cooking spray. Or is the bitter wrapper to grease it down. I used a 1/2 sheet for this. Then line saltines ( single layer) touching each other and fill the pan. This one took 2 sleeves.

Step 2

In a heavy pot add your butter and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Let boil for 3 minutes and shut off then give it a quick stir - be careful very hot !
after 3 minutes it will look like this below

Step 3

Pour this golden hot mixture over your crackers evenly , Pop in a 375 Degree oven for 6 Minutes and remove.

Step 4 
Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave - I do mine in 1 minute intervals. Took about  2 minutes total for this. Stir in between.. 

Step 5

Pour your melted chocolate over your golden covered saltines 

Step 6

Then you can top it with anything you like.  As you can see from my photo below. I just grabbed things I had in by baking pantry. And divided it into  4 sections. One with holiday sprinkles, one with coconut, one with chopped pecans and the last with sea salt. After you do this , you will want to let it chill and harden up so you can crack it apart

Funny story on my cooling process. Living in the Adirondacks , its cold this time of the year so to save time I put my pan out on the front deck for a quick chill. 

Step 7

When your creation is nice and chilled and firm, you simply start breaking it up into pieces an store in an air tight container and enjoy -
