A Wife Loved Like The Church

A dandy of a treat

Posted on: March 1, 2010

I found this recipe for Saltine Candy Treats off Blissfully Domestic and made some for Valentine’s Day (yes, I’m fully aware V-Day was over two weeks ago). Leah made a version of these at Christmas, using cheez-its, so I called her in to help me out. Props to her for the photos!

You will need:

I thought the contrast of fat free crackers with a cup of butter was pretty ironic. Don’t ya think?

Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange crackers in rows and columns, overlapping for extra layers.

Melt 1 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes.

Spread over crackers and place in the oven at 400* for 5 minutes.

Once done, remove from oven and cover with chocolate chips, spreading them to make a frosting. Leah had a helpful hint of placing it back in the turned-off oven to melt the chocolate. Worked like a charm.

And the finished product:

The contrast of sweet and salty is really yum. Makes a very delicious cookie substitute!

Funny! My friend just asked on FB what she should make for dessert and I posted this link for her: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Chocolate-Caramel-Graham-Crackers-107612

Similar recipe, different cracker.

yeah for a photo credit!! 🙂 thanks for that 🙂 ps. did you like these or the ones with the cheese it’s better?

L- Any time friend. I liked these better. I think the cheez-its might have been just a tad to much for me.

A- Those look just as tasty! Yumm-o!

thank you! and thank u for a picture of you too!

Thanks Ann!

It’s like ordering a small diet coke with your super-szied burger and fries. It’s somethin’, but it’s not enough to balance it out the fat.

Looks awesome, tho.
