Chocolate-Caramel Saltine Candy

Standard

This treat is the perfect snack to serve or to bring to a party because it will receive a lot of complements and there definitely won’t be any left over.  I made this last week and brought it in to share with my co-workers.  Some people have had this before and the ones that haven’t are always amazed that saltines crackers are the main ingredients.  I don’t have a name for this and when I asked around to the people who know what this is they didn’t have a name either.  The word “bark” came up but that refers more to flat pieces of white chocolate with peppermint flakes.

The best thing about this snack is that its cheap and easy to make.  Usually you have most of the ingredients on hand in your kitchen and if you decide to make this you will have to stop at the store to get the chocolate.  This also doesn’t take much time to put together; the longest part is letting the finish product cool in the fridge for an hour.

Ingredients

Pre-heat the oven to 375°

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 sleeves of saltines
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line a baking sheet with foil and then cover with a single layer of saltines.

Over medium heat, melt the butter.

Add the brown sugar and mix into the butter.

Bring butter/sugar mixture to a boil and let boil for 3 minutes. It will start to look like caramel.

Pour over saltines and spread evenly.

Bake in the oven for about 5-7 minutes or until the butter/sugar mixture is bubbling.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over saltines when the caramel is still hot. The chocolate will start to melt from the heat. Smooth out chocolate and spread evenly over the top.

Cool in fridge for 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Peel off foil and break into pieces. Store in a tin or a plastic container with a lid.
