I decided to try something besides my infamous white chocolate chip cookies this year. Cooking comes much more naturally to me than baking, so I tend to keep things simple. I knew combining butter, brown sugar, and chocolate was basically fool proof, and I was right. My boys delivered all but a tiny bit to our neighbors yesterday to keep my indulgence at bay. Next time you need to whip something up for a holiday party that’s quick, super easy, and most likely you already have all of the ingredients, try this.
Begin by generously coating a foiled-lined baking sheet with nonstick spray. Now layer the entire pan with saltine crackers.
Melt 2 sticks of butter and a cup of brown sugar over medium heat. Once melted, bring the pot to a boil and stir quickly for 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the crackers and even out with the back of a wooden spoon.
Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Remove and top with chocolate chips.
Pop back in the oven for 3 minutes. Remove and spread chocolate evenly over the crackers.
This is where you can let your Littles help by decorating with M&Ms, sprinkles, colored sugar, etc.
Run a sharp knife along the sides of the crackers and then refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
