Recipe: Christmas Crack

We have our first Christmas this weekend.  My mom and her four sisters still get together to celebrate with all their children and grandchildren and even great-grandchildren.  I am so lucky to have a large, loving family.  Even though not everyone can always make it (my husband and boys can’t this year) those of us that are there look forward to all the food, laughter, and memories made!

One of the things I am taking this year is Christmas Crack.  I was first introduced to this delicious treat nearly 15 years ago by a co-worker.  It is so simple and so addictive.  I warned you!

Christmas Crack

Christmas Crack
1 Sleeve Saltine Crackers
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Sticks of Butter
1-11.5 oz bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 an 8 oz bag of Heath English Toffee Bits

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and then spray with Pam. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lay out saltine crackers in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  I fit 7 across and 5 down on my sheet. Have the crackers touching each other.  Place brown sugar and butter in a sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring.  Once boiling, boil for 3 minutes without stirring.  Then pour over the saltine crackers and spread evenly.  Place pan in oven and bake for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven. Then sprinkle milk chocolate chips over the crackers.  Let them sit for a minute then spread as they begin to melt, covering all the crackers.  Then sprinkle half the bag of toffee bits over top of the melted chocolate.  Place in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer until ready to eat.  

You can either break it into pieces or cut into pieces.  If it is around long enough, keep in a tightly closed container.  Enjoy!
