Holiday Candy

One of my friends, who I have known since high school, used to make this AMAZING candy but only during the holidays. I couldn't wait until Christmas came around. It's funny, because I never asked her for the recipe, just waited for her to make it. This year, though, I asked her for the recipe. She said it's called Cracker candy. Anyone heard of it? It's a really easy recipe. So, instead of making my homemade Rocky Road fudge, this year I thought I would mix it up and make Cracker candy. Honestly, I will probably end up making the fudge too.

Here's the recipe. It's super easy and smells delicious as you are making it

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag semi sweet chocolate morsels
saltine crackers

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Line a cookie sheet that has sides with wax paper or aluminum foil I personally like wax paper because it tends not to stick to the cracker.
Place saltine crackers all along the cookie sheet until cookie sheet is full.

In a small pan, melt the butter and sugar on low heat. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, keep stirring for 3 minutes. You will have to watch mixture because it tends to boil over. (Almost happened to me)
After 3 minutes are up, pour mixture over the saltine crackers.
Put cookie sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Make sure the crackers don't burn.
Take the cookie sheet out of the oven.
Slowly pour morsels over the saltines. After about a minute, the morsels will melt. Spread them out over the entire sheet.
The best thing to do is place the cookie sheet in the freezer for a few hours. If you don't have too much freezer room, put them in the refrigerator.
After cool, break saltines and serve.

Let me know what you think!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
