Intro: Saltine Candy
I know what you're thinking...Crackers in candy? What?! Seriously though, this recipe is quite popular in the south, It is easy to make and absolutely delicious! There are several different ways you can make this, but each one begins with a saltine cracker base.
Step 1: Ingredients
2 sticks Butter (8 ounces)
1 cup packed Brown sugar
1 sleeve of Saltine crackers
12 oz package Semi sweet Chocolate chips
If you want to make Chocolate/Peanut Butter candy, use 1/2 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 bag of peanut butter chips.
When I made the semi sweet chocolate/ white chocolate version I used granulated sugar instead of the brown sugar and I put sliced almonds on top while the chocolate was still melted. So Yummy!
Step 2: Pre-heat Oven
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Step 3: Melt Butter and Brown Sugar
In a medium size saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar toether. Cook for 3 minutes on low, stirring constantly. Place the crackers on a cookie sheet and pour the sugar/butter mixture over them. Spread evenly and place in the oven. Bake for 4 minutes.
Step 4: Chocolate Chips
Sprinkle chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks) over hot Butter/sugar. They will begin to melt immediately. Smooth with spoon.
Step 5: Place in Refridgerator
Place in refridgerator for 30 minutes.
Break apart and put candy on plate. I dare anybody to eat just one!
Step 7: White Chocolate and Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
I substituted white granulated sugar for the brown sugar, used 1/2 bag white chocolate chips and 1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips and put sliced almonds on the top.
