Sweet & Saltines

I had never in my entire life seen this recipe before this summer. I made it and understood why Trisha Yearwood's family called it "Crack" and so it has been renamed in our house the same thing. I now make it for road trips along with brownies. But in the back of my mind I was thinking how I would dress it up for my Christmas Gift boxes. This is a keeper!

Sweet & Saltines
recipe adapted by Trisha Yearwood
Cooking spray
35 to 40 saltine crackers
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
1 cup light brown sugar
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/3 cups)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Line 1 large or 2 small jelly-roll pans with aluminum foil, spray with nonstick spray and arrange the saltines salt-side down in a single layer. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and boil until it turns a caramel color, a few minutes. Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.
Put the jelly-roll pan into the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly, watching carefully. Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.
Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

I couldn't resist after 20 minutes.
