Shark Snacks: Cracker Candy
In the spirit of Halloween, this week’s recipe is for a sweet and salty treat. You probably already have most of, if not all, the ingredients.
Here’s hoping the Rebels have a treat for us and tricks for Auburn on Saturday too!
- Approximately 36 Saltines (one sleeve)
- 1 c butter (2 sticks, and do NOT use margarine!)
- 1 c light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 c (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
-Line a 10×15 baking sheet with tin foil, and spray with Pam.
-Preheat oven to 400°
-Completely cover the baking sheet with a single layer of saltines.
-Combine butter and brown sugar in a boiler. Stir constantly until butter is melted and mixture is boiling. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
-Add vanilla, stir, and pour over the crackers.
-Bake 5 minutes at 400°
-Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crackers.
-Let sit for 5 minutes, and then smooth the chocolate over the top. It should be melted at this point.
-Chill in the refrigerator until set. Then break into small pieces.
