How to Make Sweet and Saltines Candy

First, start by lining a large jellyroll pan with foil and lining up your saltines. You can also substitute graham crackers for a sweeter treat. I made a pan of each!

Next I melted one cup (2 sticks) of butter and a cup of light brown sugar.
And brought it to a boil for 5 minutes.

Then pour it over the crackers and spread evenly.

Pop it in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes or until it just bubbles. Take out of the oven and sprinkle one chocolate chips evenly over the pan.

Once the chips start to melt, spread them evenly.

Pop the pan in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes until completely cool and chocolate has set. Break apart and enjoy! I cut mine in smaller pieces because I had small containers to put them in…and they are rich so a small bite is just right, in my opinion!

Ingredients

  • 40 saltine crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Line a large jellyroll pan with aluminum foil and the saltine crackers.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.
  • Put the jellyroll pan into the oven and watch closely. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly.
  • Remove pan from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.
  • Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Substitute graham crackers for the saltines for a sweeter snack.
  • Use 1 stick of butter instead of 2 for a crunchier, saltier cracker.
  • Use anywhere from 35 to 45 saltine crackers, depending on the size of your pan.
