Holiday Cranberry Crackers
I discovered these last year when my co-worker Nicole brought them to our office, and posted about them HERE. I can not believe how easy they are to make, store (for holiday cookie plates) and EAT!! They are also fabulous for getting creative and topping them with anything you can think of~
2 packages of Salteen crackers (there are 4 packages in one box)
2 sticks of butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
a package of saltine crackers
1 bag mini dark chocolate chips
Almonds, chopped, crushed or slivered
Preheat the oven to 400. Get a cookie sheet out, cover with foil and lay crackers out all over the cookie sheet. Take the butter and brown sugar and melt together in a medium 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.
