DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a jelly roll pan with parchment or wax paper.
  • Place the saltines neatly in the pan, not overlapping. The pan should hold 40 crackers pretty neatly. I break the last row in half to fit tightly.
  • Melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Keep on med-hi to hi and stir constantly for 5 minutes exactly.
  • BE AWARE that hot sugar is really fracking hot. Don't consider touching it.
  • Pour the sugar mixture onto the saltines and spread out over all the crackers. I use a frosting spreader. Use a fork to move any wayward crackers back in line.
  • Put in in the oven for 3-5 minutes.
  • Pull out and let sit for a minute, then empty the bag of chocolate chips all over the top. Back in the oven for a minute, then spread out the now melty yumminess.
  • Sprinkle some salt on top. This is optional. In some universes, I guess.
  • Put it in the freezer for 30 minutes or let it sit out for hours. It's a pretty easy decision for me, really.
  • Break up into cracker sized pieces.
  • Hide in the closet and eat 10 pieces before letting anyone know you made them.
