Easiest Holiday Treat Ever.
I saved this recipe from Joelen as soon as I saw it. It doesn’t really get much easier than this to have a nice little holiday treat to share. I took some to work today and people were loving it. It’s crazy how 4 simple ingredients take on a life of their own in this great tasting mock-tofee treat.
1 stick butter
1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
saltines - enough to line your baking sheet
1-2 cups semi chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I left the nuts out this time)
Preheat oven to 400. Line your baking sheet with foil.
Neatly place saltines on the foil lined baking sheet.
In a sauce pan, melt butter and add brown sugar. Allow butter and sugar to caramelize and boil for 2-3 minutes. Pour mixture over the saltines and spread it around to cover evenly.
Bake saltines in the preheated oven for 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the saltines. Allow it to rest for 2 minutes - enough for chocolate chips to melt. Using a rubber spatula or spreader, spread the melted chocolate over the saltines to evenly coat. Sprinkle the top with chopped nuts. Refrigerate to harden the chocolate. Break into random pieces.
