Sweet and Saltines

There are a few magazines I like. Hobby Farms, Taste of Home, and Country Living are three of them. In the April 2010 issue of Country Living, there was a recipe from Trisha Yearwood's Family Recipes collection (from her new cookbook) called "Mama's Sweet and Saltines." I made it right away and our family was hooked. It is super yummy and, of course, I've made my own tweaks...

40 Saltine crackers
1 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup light-brown sugar
8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven at 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and saltine crackers.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil.

Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over crackers, covering them evenly.

Put cookie sheet into oven and watch closely. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until just bubbly.

Remove from oven and pour chocolate chips over crackers. When chips begin to melt, spread them over crackers with a knife.

Transfer pan to freezer for about 20 minutes, or until completely cooled. (this is important or it won't come off of the foil) The chocolate-covered crackers will form a solid sheet. Break into pieces and store in airtight container.
