The Twelve Days of Goodies- Day 1

So I haven't been posting lately because I've been working on finding 12 different holiday goodies to share with you all. I tried to find recipes (mostly off of pinterest) I have not made myself. And I tried to have step by step pictures for you on the whole process. To start my twelve days of goodies, I picked one that is simply Christmas crack. This stuff is sooooo good and sooo hard to stop eating. Also, it's sooooo simple to make. What could be better at this busy time of year.

Christmas Crack

1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup light brown sugar

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

40 saltines crackers

Preheat the oven to 350.

Line your jelly roll pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Lay a flat layer of crackers on your pan.

Melt sugar and butter together until it reaches a boil. Reduce to a shimmer and cook for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and all the sugar is dissolved.

Pour the mixture over the crackers. Spread evenly.

Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the toffee becomes bubbly. Remove from oven and let sit for 3-5 minutes.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffee. Let sit a few minutes and then spread melted chips over the toffee. If you like you can add nuts or some other kind of topping, but I chose to keep it simple (this year).

Let set up by sitting out or speed things up and refrigerate. Once set, break apart into pieces...

and start eating. Although I do warn you once you start, you may not be able to stop. I know I had a very hard time. :)


  1. Wow, Kris,

    These are certainly simple and I know you found them to be equally delicious. I'm going to try some for our community open-house. Bet I'll get requests for the recipe!!!! THanks, MOM

  2. I'm going to make this one for sure! Right now, I have so much going on that if there is going to be anything "holiday" at our place it's going to have to be this simple!! Thanks, Kris!
