Christmas Crack as it’s “lovingly” called is really such an amazing and delicious Holiday treat. It’s made with so many delicious flavors and textures making this a Holiday Favorite. The sky is the limit to the many combinations you can make with this treat and in essence it calls for any treat you have in the cupboards.
What You’ll need:
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Butter
2 Cups of Chocolate chips
Any Candy or Nuts you have on hand (I used heath bits, M&M’s , Chopped Walnuts)
Spread out the saltine crackers on cookie sheet with sides. Make sure they are flat and touching on the sides.
Once you’ve spread the saltine Crackers you will make the ooey gooey caramel. It’s Easy! Just combine 1 Cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of Butter until it boils. Make sure and stir it continuously.
Once it’s a delicious caramel consistency pour it over the saltine crackers and spread over in a layer. Make sure every cracker is covered by the caramel.
Then you will add chocolate chips. You can also add caramel bits to the chocolate chips. You will heat the whole tray up in the oven at 300 Degrees for about5 minutes. You have to eye this because you don’t want it to burn, just enough where the chocolate is melted. You’ll then spread the melted chocolate over the caramel layer.
It will make another layer over the delicious caramel.
Then comes the fun part! Adding the fix-in’s. I just spread it out in layers.
Just add your favorite candies and nuts! From oreos, to Resses or even cranberries the sky is the limit to what you can add. Leave in the refrigerator for about 30minutes-1 hour and then take out. Finally, just break it up into squares, you can also cut it but I just love to break it up into chunks.
Because of the saltine crackers delicious saltiness mixed in with the ooey gooey caramel this treat will be addictive.
I’m going to give you a fair warning, these go quickly so make sure and grab one before your family members do. I always end up making a few batches because for some reason someone always finds the hiding place and they disappear.
