Musings from a promise-collector

Cracker Bark


Cracker Bark (otherwise known as Saltine Toffee Cookies) is a wonderfully easy treat that has become a huge hit in this house! It totally fulfills the sweet-tooth craving when the urge hits. After getting some as a gift, we looked up the recipe on allrecipes.com to get the exact directions, and found the specifics here.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces saltine crackers (enough to cover the bottom of a pan)
  • 1 cup butter (we’ve found that 1/2 cup also works)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer.
  3. In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate and add optional chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.

If you want it to cool off quickly, place pan in a freezer. Then we use a wooden mallet (or meat tenderizer) to break the pieces apart.

Store in a sealed container in the freezer or refrigerator.

I dare you to not eat half of the pan in one sitting!

  1. This is a favorite at our house too! I switch it up by using graham crackers or buttersotch mixed with the chocolate (yummy)
