Christmas Crack Candy

Today is the 30's club at Sager Creek Quilt Shop. So this morning I worked on the last two blocks I needed to finish the two month sets, #6 & #7

Here is the block, Jewel, I was working on.
Thought I had everything laid out as far as the paper printed for the block and marked on paper which fabric is needed for each section (paper piecing). 
But so much for thinking.

           

Not sure what went wrong on this block
        Need to get a little more fabric now to correct my mistake tonight.


Other than that, here are the rest of the blocks done


.
Tonight being that it's December, we always have a cookie exchange. 


So the cookie I'm making is called Christmas Crack or Saltine Toffee Candy 
Now if you've never had this you'll know how it gets it's name. It is addicting
Besides being addicting, it's very simple to make.
You only need four ingredient, unless you add nuts on top, then five.
What you need is;
Box Club Crackers
(most recipes call for saltines and can use them)
 2 sticks of butter = 1 cup
 1 cup brown sugar
  bag of milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips




Put parchment paper on your cooking sheet and then add a single layer of crackers across the entire sheet.

In a sauce pan, melt your butter and add your cup of brown sugar and bring to a boil. 
Boil for exactly 3 minutes, stirring so it doesn't burn.


            Spread the mixture over the crackers and cover the best you can.
                  Place in a pre-heated 350 oven for exactly 8 minutes


            




Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. They melt quickly so you can spread them shortly after sprinkling on top.


I added chopped pecans and I also sprinkled a little bit of salt on top.

             

Put in the freezer or refrigerator for an hour or so to get it cold and hard and then cut or break it up



Then enjoy and try your best not to eat too much.

  1. I have eaten these and you can't stop - I have never made them but thought I would this year when company comes so someone can help me eat them

  2. I like your recipe better than the one I made. I used saltines, and it just didn't taste right. Those look good!

  4. Yum!! This Christmas Crack party looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the photos here. I would like to try this recipe at home. Our daughter’s 10th birthday is in next month and I am making plans for an outdoor party at some domestic event space San Francisco but I’ll make all the party food on my own.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
