    Christmas Crack anyone??

    [​IMG]

    Ingredients

    Cooking spray
    35 to 40 saltine crackers
    2 sticks (1 cup) butter
    1 cup light brown sugar
    8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/3 cups)

    Directions

    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 call that tree bark. And those thing are delicious.

    We make xmas cookies, fudge, and Scrabble (chex/nut mix).
    I also make chocolate covered creme cherries.

    I'll be checking this thread for ideas. My girlfriend is a great cook but I'd like to start getting more involved with this type of kitchen work. TIA. :toptip:
