And when you try this stuff...you'll see why I've aptly named it Crack.
Not that I have any experience with the real stuff....I just can't keep my hands off of this stuff.
We, are, honestly - pretty healthy eaters around these here parts. Kevy's belly can't take anything that's not pretty seriously clean eating...and I don't love to have my boys any more ramped up than they normally already are...but we've had company with us over the weekend, and you have to give your company some tasty treats...and this is so stinkin' easy....and so super cheap to make....and I had so many leftover Saltine Crackers from when the flu came to live with us for that week.....
I just had to make some.
That's my story, and I'm sticking with it.
Do you want it? You know you do...
So, without further ado, my wee hoolies and I will give you a play by play pictorial tutorial...
Here's all that you need for a single batch:
(I may or may not have made two batches...one with dark chocolate and one with milk...but, I can't really remember....)
In a medium sized saucepan melt:
1 cup real butter
1 cup light brown sugar.
Bring to a boil and stir (constantly) for three minutes after it's come to that full, rolling boil.
(Start timing after it comes to the boil).
Next: And this is the part where I take over....
pour that mixture over the tops of all of your crackers, and spread to completely cover.
Hence, the more appropriate name that my oh so wholesome and proper Mama gave to them.
Now, place these babies into a pre-heated 375 degree oven and cook for five minutes.
Watch closely - they can burn pretty easily.
Whilst you wait....feel free to lick out the leftover goodness in the saucepan...
Try not to allow your Demon kitty to slip outside when the door is open.
If she does, make sure she gets no samples...
Oh - and don't forget to share...
Sometimes, I do a batch and a half of the butter and brown sugar. This makes for a thicker toffee bottom - which I actually like better. Go big or go home, right? However, if you do this - you will want to cook it in the oven for just a few minutes longer...otherwise it won't really crisp up - even after it's hardened. Either way, though, it will still taste amazing.
I promise you that.
Again....I'm sorry, and you're welcome!
Happy Hump Day!
