This is the easiest dessert ever! I've been making it for about 8 years now after tasting it at a volleyball weekend up at a friend's cottage. With only 4 ingredients it takes very little energy to make this recipe. The result tastes like you spent hours on it. It's perfect for a last minute potluck or if you package it nicely, a hostess gift. Make sure to keep very cool when transporting so the chocolate doesn't melt. My husband made this last night (with a little help) for a picnic we are having today.
Ingredients & Preparation:
- 24 regular salted soda crackers (i.e. premium plus)
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper for easy clean up. Arrange crackers evenly in pan. In saucepan over medium heat melt butter. Stir in brown sugar until melted and smooth. Bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Boil for 2 minutes and then pour mixture evenly over crackers. Bake in oven for 5 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate pieces evenly over caramel mixture. Return to oven just long enough for chocolate to melt. Spread chocolate evenly with spatula. Place pan in refrigerator or freezer until chocolate is firm. Cut or break into pieces.
