Recipe for Saltine Treats

Looking for a new easy-peasy dessert or snack recipe? Well, you are in luck my friend, because I have a new simple recipe for you. This one uses only 4 ingredients and is a snap to make. Also, it is a good one for kids to help put together. I got this recipe years ago from a Penzey’s spice catalog and hadn’t made it in quite some time. To me it has the perfect blend of sweet and salty with the right amount of crunch. Wanna make some? Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place saltines side by side on the parchment until it is covered.

1 sleeve of saltines

Melt butter and sugar together and pour over the saltines. Bake for 10 minutes.

And did I mention that this recipe is really healthy too šŸ˜‰

Sprinkle on chocolate chips and return to the oven for 1-2 minutes so the chocolate chips will stick to the crackers.

The final step...

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, then break apart before serving. I used regular sized chocolate chips for this batch, but the mini size actually works even better. Another variation that I have seen is to melt the chocolate chips entirely and pour in a layer over top of the crackers, then chill. Bon Apetit!
