If you’re looking for a quick and easy treat that won’t take more than about 15 minutes to make, Easy Christmas Crack will work perfectly.
The brown sugar and butter cooks up to taste just like Heath bars, and is amazing. I brought this to my Dad’s house for Christmas and they were a hit!
The recipe and printable directions listed below.
Lay the crackers out on a cookie sheet. I use some tinfoil to keep the pan from being impossible to clean after they cook. I also spray the pan with some nonstick spray to keep things from sticking.
I used Club crackers, but you can use Saltines or Ritz crackers, as well.
Add the butter and the brown sugar to the saucepan and give it a good stir. Turn the heat on medium-high.
Bring the brown sugar and butter to a rolling boil and boil for 3 minutes.
Pour the brown sugar and butter mixture over the crackers. Be sure to pour it slowly. If you pour too fast the mixture will push the crackers around a little bit. (Speaking from experience). If that happens, just take a spatula and push them back into place and it will all turn out ok.
Pop them in the oven for 5 minutes on 400-degrees.
After 5 minutes, pour the chocolate chips over the top and let them sit for a minute so they will get warm enough to spread.
Give the chocolate chips a couple of minutes to warm up, and then take a knife and spread it around. Oh. My. Goodness. It’s so amazingly delicious.
At this point, you can put some holiday or Christmas sprinkles on top or just leave the chocolate untouched–well, until you go to eat it!
If you have time, put it in the refrigerator. If you’re in a bit of a hurry, you can put it in the freezer to harden.
Once it has hardened, take it out and peel the tinfoil off of the back, and break it up into pieces.
The Christmas crack makes a great gift for teachers, friends, neighbors, and anyone that you can think of, unless you eat it all first…which is very possible!
