Christmas Crack


If you've ever dreamed of being addicted to something both gooey & chewy you've come to the right place!
Christmas Crack, aka: cracker candy, toffee bark or ghetto toffee is made with crackers & is addictive like crack, or so I've been told.
It is also so easy you won't even need the dreaded candy thermometer!
First thing you'll need in some heavy duty aluminum foil.
Line a jelly roll pan or half sheet pan with foil, over the sides.
Now cram as many club crackers as you can in a single layer onto the foil-lined pan.

If using a jelly roll pan combine 1 cup of butter & 1 cup of brown sugar in a saucepan.
You'll need to double that if using a half sheet pan.
Heat butter & brown sugar over medium heat to a rolling boil. Stir constantly for 5 minutes.

Carefully pour over crackers and bake at 350 for 6-10 minutes.

Remove from oven & sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Let chips set for 5 minutes and then carefully spread until smooth without moving the cracker base.

Top with anything from toffee chips to nuts to peppermint pieces.

Cool for a couple hours & cut or break into pieces.
*The Crack will be easier to cut into uniform pieces before it is completely set.
It will be very difficult to not eat every piece, you've been warned!
Merry Christmas!!
