Some recipes are so simple that I wonder why I wasn’t able to come up with them myself. This recipe is an adaptation of one that my daughter found on Pinterest. I have changed some of it because the original required a pan that was too big for my small oven . It takes no more than 20 minutes to make and the same length of time to put an extra inch on your waistline.
You will need:
20 soda crackers |( salted or unsalted doesn’t matter)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter ( not margarine)
1 cup chocolate chips
( optional)Coconut, craisins, nuts or other garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line a rectangular pan with foil wrap and grease the wrap lightly. Spread the twenty crackers evenly over the pan to make a single layer.
Heat the butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil till sugar has melted (about 6 minutes).
Pour this mixture over the crackers while still hot.
Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes or till the sugar mixture is bubbling over the crackers.
Remove pan from the oven and drop the chocolate chips over the hot mixture. Allow to sit for a few minutes till the chocolate has melted. Spread evenly with a knife. If you wish to add some crushed nuts , coconut, craisins or whatever strikes your fancy do so now.
Let cool till the chocolate is no longer tacky and cut into squares or crack it into irregular shapes. Try not to eat it all in one sitting.
