Christmas Crack

Good luck keeping this Christmas Crack away from the frenzied fingers of family members. Buttery toffee with a light, crispy crust, coated in rich chocolate and toasted pecans may just be the most addictive snack ever!


Saltines – 30
Butter – 1 Cup (2 Sticks)
Brown Sugar-Packed – 1 Cup
Vanilla Extract – 2 Teaspoons
Salt – 1/4 Teaspoon
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – 12 Ounces
Pecans, Chopped – 1 Cup


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Spray with a nonstick cooking spray(15X10X1 inch )
Lay Saltines in a single layer in the pan.
Add butter and brown sugar to a heavy-bottomed saucepan and melt over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook just until it turns caramel color, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt. Pour mixture evenly over crackers.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly ove top. Let sit a couple of minutes, then using an offset spatula and spread chocolate to cover. Sprinkle top with pecans. Let cool then refrigerate until completely cold, at least 4-6 hours. Peel away the foil and cut or break into pieces.
