Chocolate Treats!

Doesn't it look yummy?
Guess what's on the bottom?

Yes, that's saltine crackers!
With these simple ingredients:
1 sleeve of crackers 
stick of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 cups of chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
You can make the world's easiest candy  

Lay one sleeve of Saltines out on a cookie sheet (you might want to spray or grease the pan first). I don't have a cookie sheet with sides, so I used my stoneware bar pan.

Melt one cup brown sugar and one stick of butter in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat until a gooey mixture forms.

Pour this mixture over the saltines and spread around with a spatula to generously coat them.

Stick the pan in the oven on 350 degrees for around five minutes until the brown sugar mixture is bubbling on the crackers.

Pull out of the oven and pour two cups of chocolate chips over the crackers and let them sit for a few minutes until they are starting to melt.

Spread the melted chocolate chips evenly over the crackers and then stick in the freezer for around an hour (until chocolate hardens). With my stoneware I had to wait till pan was cool so stoneware wouldn't crack.

Once chocolate is hardened, lift off the cookie sheet with a metal spatula and break into pieces.

I saw these at Outside the Box after Christmas. She made them for neighbors. They would make wonderful gifts for family & friends!

When not eating them...keep in the freezer!

** Caution - They are addicting **
