sweet & saltines {super yum}

October 18th | food & goodies

Have you ever made ‘sweet and saltines’? It’s Tricia Yearwood’s recipe and this dessert is to.die.for!!

There are only four ingredients. Which is easy. And awesome! Here’s the ingredient list…

35-40 saltine crackers, 2 sticks butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 8 oz. chocolate chips {or more if you love chocolate like we do!}

Directions {taken from here}

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Line 1 large or 2 small jelly-roll pans with aluminum foil, spray with nonstick spray and arrange the saltines salt-side down in a single layer. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and boil until it turns a caramel color, a few minutes. Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.

Put the jelly-roll pan into the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly, watching carefully. Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.

Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

We also call this ‘crack’ at our house because it’s so addictive. Yum! Try it, you’ll thank me!

    Our instructions say, “salt side up”…funny. We call it “square”…the crack like addictive “gotta have it now” quality is totally there with this, I quite agree.

  19. Kelli says:

    Yum, yum, yum! And naughty-naughty! Do you keep them in the freezer?

    • Lisa Leonard says:

      You can keep them in the freezer to give a chilled taste. In my family they are normally gone before they can even make it to the freezer!

  20. anna says:

    My family makes them with graham crackers instead of saltines. Not quite salty and sweet but still very tasty!
