Christmas Crack

Did the title scare you a little bit? Last year I found this amazing recipe online for this "Christmas Crack" and do you know what I found out? Besides it being 100% addicting, I was the only person on the planet who hadn't heard of it. I know, right? Anyways this year I figure maybe, just maybe someone somewhere out there hasn't heard of it either and I could show them the goodness!

No, this is not a "how to stall your viewers post before the big giveaway tomorrow" nope, not at all.

Let's grab our ingredients shall we?

1 cup of butter (No I didn't say this was healthy for you)

1 cup of brown sugar

1 package of saltine crackers

1 package of semi sweet chocolate chips

Heat your oven up to 400 degrees and bring your butter and sugar to a boil in a sauce pan, while stirring for 3 minutes.

Align your crackers on a cookie sheet, you're supposed to use parchment paper or something of the sort I just spray mine with some non-stick spray and call it good.

Pour the mixture over the crackers and throw 'em in the oven for 5 whole minutes.

Once you take them out sprinkle the chocolate chips over the whole thing, let it set for a few minutes till the chips are soft enough to spread.

Throw it in the fridge (or freezer if your like me and want it N.O.W.) once it's hard break it up by hand. Yum yum yum.

I do things a tad different as once I'm done spreading the chocolate over the top I throw another layer of chips on it just to melt a tiny bit, it makes it thicker. I've googled Christmas crack and came up with a 7 layer one I'd like to try. But I'm pacing myself with this whole "kitchen, cooking, domestic" stuff. Also, I used chocolate chips and the peanut butter ones this time. Goodness, that's some good eatin'. You could use mint, or sprinkle candy cane bits on it too. The possibilities are endless!

Don't forget tomorrow's giveaway! It probably won't go up until the evening as I need to take some good pictures of it and's 9:00 at night right now!

Good stuff. See you there.

I love this sweet treat. I made some a few weeks ago and posted the recipe. You have inspired me to make more...although I don't need it with the holidays coming up. :)

Oh my gosh, that sounds so strange!! But no doubt, I bet it's really yummy! I just had hubby come over so he could look at it.

I didn't see a post for FMM, but since you gave the approval, I think I'll add this one to the food blog, if that's still okay.

The first time I tasted that, was at a bake sale for my daughter's school. She is 22, so this was a long time ago, and I still consider those crackers to be one of the best recipes in the world. Oh, Yummmm!!!
