I’m sure everyone has seen this recipe out there … but when one of the attorney’s gave me the recipe to try last year, I decided to do it. Because, hey, we had that boat parade party and I was trying to do it within the budget that year.
So I made it with modifications.
I had everything on hand EXCEPT the crackers. I mean, who has saltines readily available?
Oh. Apparently a lot of people do.
I didn’t. I planned to head over to Aldi to pick up a box for what I’m sure would only be around 79 cents or so.
But that trip never happened, so instead, Publix it was. This box cost me $2.09 if you can believe that. Whatever, I was on a mission here …
Let’s get crackin, shall we??
1 sleeve of saltine crackers which equals about 35 to 40
2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
Crank up the oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking tray with some parchment paper and give it a good spray with some non-stick spray. Lay out the crackers in a single layer.
Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Uhm, be careful you don’t stir it out of the pan as it is really hot and will make a mess all over your clean stove.
Pour this over the crackers and then bake for 6 minutes or so.
Top with the chocolate chips, put back in the oven and bake for 3 to 4 minutes, til chips are melted.
Pull out of the oven, spread the melted chocolate to coat the crackers and then sprinkle like a crazy woman.
Yeah, we like sprinkles in this house and I just never use them anymore so this was GREAT to use up that stash!
Cut the stuff into squares and then put the whole pan in the fridge til firm. * I didn’t cut them before I put them in the fridge and I was a little sorry as that chocolate gets HARD once it firms up!
I really really urge you to give this a try … it’s a HUGE hit!
A side note: this is the first year that we are not hosting a Boat Parade Party and it feels SO liberating! We will be attending, however, at my old neighbors house … that will give us a chance to peek at how the renovations are going on the old house 😉
