Ok I admit this is one of my secret holiday indulgences – but why does it just have to be once a year. Here is our favorite recipe to share with you.
1 pack of saltines (a sleeve)
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 small bag of milk chocolate chips (we also use white chocolate chips)
chopped nuts (we have used slivered almonds, pecans or your favorite nut)
Preheat your over to 400 degrees.
First, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and add a layer of saltines.
Next, in a small pot add the sugar and butter and bring to a boil – for 3 minutes – make sure to stir frequently.
Pour the sugar and butter mixture over the saltine crackers and bake in the oven for 7 minutes.
After they are done baking – remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over it (we like to use both white and milk chocolate chips). Wait a few minutes for the chocolate to melt – then spread the chocolate out evenly. Next, add the chopped nuts of your choice. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours after which you break them into small pieces. In my opinion they taste best out of the refrigerator – so keep them cold !
