Equipment

  • Jelly Roll Pan

Ingredients

  • 36-48 saltine crackers enough to cover the entire jello roll pan
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of optional toppings M&M's, nuts, sprinkles, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Line a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper or line with aluminum foil
  • Line the entire jello roll pan with saltine crackers placed in a single layer. (don’t worry if there is a little space left on the sides)
  • In a small saucepan, add the butter and brown sugar and heat on the stovetop on medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and continue stirring continuously for 3 minutes until it begins to darken and thicken
  • Pour the hot butter/sugar mixture immediately over top of the saltine crackers on the jelly roll pan and spread evenly all over the crackers. (it’s ok if they are not perfect. it will continue to spread in the oven.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes until the caramel is bubbling.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over entire pan.
  • Turn off the oven and place the pan back in for 5 minutes.
  • Gently spread the melted chocolate chips to evenly cover the crackers.
  • Sprinkle with seasonal toppings if desired.
  • Let the pan cool to room temperature and then cover with foil and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours but overnight is even better)
  • Carefully crack the crackers into pieces (or use a knife to cut into desired size)
