|Before the cookbook purge.|
My favorite category of recipe? Dessert. We only eat dessert on weekends so it make take a while to wade through all those recipes I've collected. Oh, woe is me.
Here's my first try-out. This recipe has been all over Pinterest and I was intrigued by the idea of turning saltines into some kind of sweet treat. Didn't sound possible but multiple sources assured me that this stuff was great. I combined them all and came up with this.
|Butter and sugar a good start to any dessert.|
Once it's melted together pour it all over a layer of saltines in a rimmed baking sheet. This looks like a real mess doesn't it? Don't worry it's gonna be all right. Pop it in the oven and bake for 5 or 6 minutes until it's bubbly.
Saltine Toffee Crunchies
Adapted from various internet sources
4 ounces saltine cracker (a whole sleeve of saltines, I weighed them)
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer. Don't worry about the crackers touching or lining up all pretty, it won't matter in the final product.
- 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.
- Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes until the chips are melty and soft. If your chips need some help just slip the tray back in the warm oven for a minute or two. Spread melted chocolate to cover and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.
These are sooooo good and super easy. My Pinterest board is going to be full of great treats I've actually made! Sky's the limit I guess. Don't forget to pin it.
Until next time,
