I admit, I haven't been here in quite a while & I've felt a bit guilty about it. I'm so glad to see the renewed interest in the site & I hope things keep clicking along they way they have of late.
While scrolling through I've loved seeing the healthy recipes & adaptations you all have posted...and now I'm going to ruin all our resolutions to eat better in this new year. This recipe is floating about the ether in a few forms but this is my favorite thus far.
You will need:
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 to 1 1/2 sleeves saltine crackers
1 to 1 1/2 cup good chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate chips because they melt beautifully)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a heavy sauce pan, melt butter and brown sugar together & bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes stirring often.
Line a jelly roll pan (or any sheet pan with sides) with aluminum foil and lay out saltines to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
Pour butter & brown sugar mixture over the crackers & bake for 7 minutes.
After baking, remove from oven for 1-2 minutes then sprinkle with chocolate chips and return to oven for 1 minute. Once chocolate chips have melted, spread chocolate over crackers with a spatula. Let cool, then break apart or cut between crackers to eat.
Now, I will warn you, this stuff is rich and addictive. I love it but can easily eat myself sick on it. It's best made when you're going to have company to share it with.
