Nicole's Famous CRACKers
A co-worker brought these lil'devils in to work a while back and I (our whole office) LOVED them!!! It is a super easy, super budget-friendly, great-take-to-a-party treat, so (with Nicole's permission) I had to share~
We re-named them CRACKers because, as you will find, these are completely addictive and I DARE you to only eat one!
THANK YOU NICOLE for letting me post this for everyone to enjoy!
What you'll need~
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
a package of saltine crackers
any nuts chopped or crushed (pictured with almonds, MY FAVORITE!)
Preheat the oven to 400. Get a cookie sheet out, cover with foil and lay crackers out all over the cookie sheet. Take the stick of butter and brown sugar and melt together in a small pot over medium heat don't stir until it is all melted!!, now wait for the sugar/butter to caramelize (you will notice big bubbles)- once that happens, remove the pan from the heat and use a spoon to drizzle the caramelly goodness all over the crackers. Then sprinkle the crushed nuts on top.
Bake for 5-7 minutes. Take the crackers out and IMMEDIATELY sprinkle the chocolate chips over them, then transfer off the cookie sheet to cool before the chocolate chips re-harden.
