Christmas Crack Candy

I'm sure everyone has seen this recipe out there ... but when one of the attorney's gave me the recipe to try I decided to do it.  Because, hey, we had that boat parade party and I was trying to do it within the budget this year.

So I made it with modifications.


I had everything on hand EXCEPT the crackers. I mean, who has saltines readily available?

Oh. Apparently a lot of people do.

I didn't.  I planned to head over to Aldi to pick up a box for what I'm sure would only be around 79 cents or so.

But that trip never happened, so instead, Publix it was.  This box cost me $2.09 if you can believe that. Whatever, I was on a mission here ...

Let's get crackin, shall we??

1 sleeve of saltine crackers which equals about 35 to 40
2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
sprinkles galore

Crank up the oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking tray with some parchment paper and give it a good spray with some non-stick spray.  Lay out the crackers in a single layer.

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Uhm, be careful you don't stir it out of the pan as it is really hot and will make a mess all over your clean stove.

Pour this over the crackers and then bake for 6 minutes or so.


Top with the chocolate chips, put back in the oven and bake for 3 to 4 minutes, til chips are melted.

Pull out of the oven, spread the melted chocolate to coat the crackers and then sprinkle like a crazy woman. 

Yeah, we like sprinkles in this house and I just never use them anymore so this was GREAT to use up that stash!

Cut the stuff into squares and then put the whole pan in the fridge til firm. * I didn't cut them before I put them in the fridge and I was a little sorry as that chocolate gets HARD once it firms up!

I really really urge you to give this a try ... it's a HUGE hit!

  1. I always have saltines in my pantry as it is the cracker of choice to go with soup unless I have some good bread on hand. My husband would make a savory cracker with a little butter, Italian dressing and some good Parmesan and broil briefly. I like your sweet Christmas Crack Candy better. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday.
