Here is an easy and delicious recipe that is just right for gift giving. The only problem with the recipe is that it is totally addictive and if any stays in your house, you should be wearing elastic waistband pants, I am just saying... Here is the recipe and some pix sprinkled in-sorry for the lack of consistency!
2 Sticks Butter (no substitutes)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2-2 cups Choc Chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Cover cookie sheet with tin foil, lightly grease.
Lay saltines in a single layer on cookie sheet. (One column +/- works for one cookie sheet.)
Cook butter and brown sugar over med heat until melted/mixed. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook (soft boil) for 4 minutes more.
Pour this mixture over the saltines. Spread evenly.
Cook saltines with mixture for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven. Spread chocolate chips evenly.
Wait about 5 minutes. The chips will begin to melt, and you can spread them with a spatula. Now is the time to sprinkle with sprinkles or nuts or some goodies if you want.
Wait for at least an hour. Everything will harden. Notice how almost half of mine is gone before I even get to break it apart into pieces?! I swear, it wasn't only me!
Break apart in random sized pieces. Try not to eat the whole thing.
Wrap up whatever is still left and share with friends!
