Chocolate Caramel Saltines with Sprinkles

where the wild things are
Posted on 04/18/2012 by phenomenal


First off I just wanted to say that I really love the new layout. It's so nice and streamlined and I love it.

This recipe was interesting. The saltiness of the saltines really attributed to the caramel and chocolate - the savory and sweet combination of the crackers is addicting. And they are super easy to make.


Based on Smitten Kitchen's recipe

Ingredients
about 40 saltine crackers
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
a pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped semi-sweet baking chocolate
rainbow sprinkles

Directions

1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the crackers on the baking sheet.

2. Preheat the oven to 350.

3. In a pan combine the butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Stir for about 3 minutes, until it starts to get thick. Add the salt and vanilla and stir into the caramel.

4. Immediately pour the caramel over the crackers.

5. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

6. As soon as you remove the crackers from the oven sprinkle the chocolate over the top and spread it around, as it will melt.

7. Sprinkle the rainbow sprinkles over the top.

8. Let cool until the chocolate and caramel harden.

That's a great idea! I think little kids would have fun decorating them (I know I did!)

Theeeese look great. And wonderfully easy and simple too, which is a bonus given I fulfill the "in college in an apartment" type. I'll have to remember to pick up the ingredients next time we go grocery shopping.

It was definitely easy and something I wish I had known about when I was living in my college apartment!

I finally ended up making these on Sunday and ohhhhh dear were they a hit with my roommates. They were a bit skeptical, given the simplicity (and I suppose the use of saltines), but once I finished they became like crack in our refrigerator. Woops.

Yay! I'm glad they were well received!

I normally make this with matzoh and its amazing. Plus, those sheets are huge so its much easier to lay that out then dozens of saltines.
My family and friends (and lots of other people) call it crack, since its that addictive and kind of like a cracker.

I also have made it with whole wheat matzoh which gives a nice nuttiness to it.
And you can really put ANY topping on it. Almonds, walnuts, pecans, coconut, dried fruit though sea salt is everyone's favorite.

1 cup chopped semi-sweet baking chocolate
would the semi-sweet melts you'd get to put in chocolate chip cookies work just as well here?

The original recipe called for chocolate chips, so definitely!
