Recipe: Cracker Crack

Cracker Crack is a variant of matza crack, so called because it is made from matza and is incredibly addictive. Making it from saltines takes it to a whole new level of crackitude.

Ingredients
1 sleeve saltines
2 sticks (1/2 lb) butter
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1.5 cups chocolate chips
sea salt or kosher salt
parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the saltines in a single layer on the paper-lined baking sheet.

In a medium pot over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar together, stirring frequently. When the sugar is melted and the mixture comes to a boil, stir constantly  while boiling for 3 minutes.

Pour the caramel over the crackers. Work quickly as it will start to set up as soon as you take it off the heat. Use a rubber spatula to spread the mixture relatively evenly, but don't worry about uneven spots. Sprinkle  lightly with sea salt.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and scatter chocolate chips over the hot baked crackers. Let sit a few minutes, then use a rubber spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly. You may then add more toppings if you wish, chopped pecans or bits of candied ginger, etc.. Let sit until thoroughly cool, about 2 hours. Break into pieces, don't worry if they are uneven.

Makes 40 + pieces. They never last long.
