Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Line 1 large or 2 small jelly-roll pans with aluminum foil, spray with nonstick spray and arrange the saltines salt-side down in a single layer. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and boil until it turns a caramel color, a few minutes. Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.

Put the jelly-roll pan into the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly, watching carefully. Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers. When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.

Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet. Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

Made these today for the first time. Spectacular! I like reading of other's variations. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They are super easy to make. I think they taste a little bit like the chocolate bar Twix or Skor. Just be sure you stay at the over while the caramel is melting, it can burn real quick. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great recipe, absoultey love it. Perfect for the holidays and parties :). I like to sprinkle different things on top, like chopped pecans or sprinkles to make them festive for the holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe; I've made it several times. I put mine in the refrigerator rather than the freezer to cool off. Realize that the pan is still oven hot when it goes in, and it lowers the temp inside the freezer too much. I clear a shelf in the refrigerator, put down potholders and place the hot pan on top. I leave it in for an hour, and it comes out perfectly and ready to be broken up into pieces. :) It's amazingly delicious. It tastes a lot like a Heath bar. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making these for yrs & love them. I do use lass butter/sugar & choc. chips. As long as you use equal parts butter to brown sugar. I have used 1/2 cup butter/sugar, but that is a little more difficult to cover the saltines. Last time I made them I used 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons, I then sprinkle just enough choc, chips. They are more crunchy this & slightly less caloric. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We've been making these for years with a little twist. I use milk chocolate chips and heath toffee bits together and they're wonderful.

I hope Trisha Yearwood nor Paula Deen are taking credit for this because neither one made up this recipe. BUT it is absolutely addictive. I took this to work a few years ago and now all I hear is "when are you going to make some more crack candy". item not reviewed by moderator and published
This had a nice flavor and even though I love English toffee, I found these to be much too sweet. I can't imagine how anyone can find these addictive. We are chocoholics in my home and everyone is in love with toffee but can't get past eating one piece of this due to all the sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Mmmmmmmmm. Crunchy, chewy, melt-in-your-mouthy, buttery, chocolatey, caramely. Oh heavenly. Best junk food invented-who thought this one up? Genius. Thanks for giving us this recipe Trisha. I'd give it a ten star rating if I could. Although I thought I had to use almost twice as many chocolate chips as stated in recipe to cover two sheet pans, about 3 cups and then I laid it on too thick, but no such thing as too much chocolate, right? item not reviewed by moderator and published
trying it now, smells delicious. Well I DID IT. YUMMO item not reviewed by moderator and published
I spent $12.50 on supplies, and they actually turned out pretty bad/sloppy. The chocolate would not melt smoothly and the end result wasn't pretty. I had a very hard time getting the "cookies" to unstick from the sheet/paper. Good for a relatively expensive snack at home, but I would be embarrassed to bring this to a school function or family holiday. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had a hard time finding what I am looking for but I soon found it so love that we can watch the video on the chefs making the meal or treats ... keep up the awesome job love it , my husband and will watch the cooking channel and not miss it , just a an IDEA why don't the FOOD NET work Team make a trip to GUAM and make a show on a few restaurants here , There are some the need a make over and there are some that are GREAT place for the world to see and visit .. just saying .... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! I have substituted gluten free saltines, because my kids have celiac. Even though they crumble a bit more, they still are very, very yummy! My daughter was thrilled that she can still have them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy with a capital "YUM". Try using butterscotch chips as well. Very good too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you're having trouble with the caramel running under the crackers, try cooking the caramel a little more to thicken it up. She says in the video to cook it until it comes away from the side of the pot a little. Excellent, cheap, easy and quick recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I added chopped bacon, chopped hazel nuts and cayenne pepper, everyone loved them. The next time I am going to use 85% cocoa instead of the semi-sweet chocolate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried making these and the family LOVED them! so did two of my youngest kids teachers that I gave them to. We stored them in the freezer to keep them from being too gooey, which actually made them even Better! I used parchment paper to line the pan and still used cooking spray like the recipe said. I had a question about that, if using parchment paper should you still use the cooking spray? Some of the caramel got under the crackers, and I figured the spray helped to make sure they didn't stick so I didn't see it as a bad thing. I will be making these again for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this for years, only at Christmas time. My kids would eat it for breakfast. I generally stick it in the fridge overnight then break it up and store in a Christmas tin. It's generally gone in a few days. Also , line the flat sheetpan with alunimum and spray with Pam first. Easier cleanup and release of crackers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely a yummy treat! Everyone at our Super Bowl party loved them. After watching the video again I still don't see how Trisha keeps the hot butter/brown sugar mixture from creeping underneath the layer of crackers!! I tried everything to avoid that but nothing worked. I think the bottom (salted) side actually had more of it than the chocolate side. Oh well...still yummy. I found it was best to keep them refrigerated or frozen whenever no one was actively eating them because they get really sticky otherwise. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What's not to like they are easy, quick few ingredients that I usually always have on hand. loved by children and adults, can be made in many variations and children can make them with supervision! I use the microwave to cook the caramel and we are going to try graham crackers next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this many times, I always put chopped pecans on top for more yum. This keeps a long time, keep in frig or cold garage. Great quick treat for last minute company. Gotta chill it afterwards a bit though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cracker candies make the perfect gift and are so buttery and caramelized, one just isn't enough. For easy clean-up, I purchased 9x13 inch aluminum pans, sprayed them with olive oil spray and added the crackers. Everything lifted out with ease! My chocolate didn't quite melt so I put bubbly cracker trays back in the oven for a couple minutes just to warm the chocolate a touch. I also didn't freeze or refrigerate mine. Just let the chocolate set for a few hours. Make a double batch b/c they're so easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We love these! Easy and fast. I used Ritz crackers since I didn't have any Saltines, and I added about half a package of cinnamon chips to the chocolate chips. We prefer milk chocolate. Yum! Thanks, Trisha. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dangerously sweet! I normally don't make stuff like this (white flour, sugar etc.) but very tasty/sweet....more gooey than you realize--careful of teeth. Need to break apart when they're still cold. Next time I would add orange zest on top of chocolate. I served with cut strawberries strewn over, made all the difference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I went to an open design house yesterday and they had these crackers as a 'thank you' snack. I grabbed one on my way out and had to TURN AROUND AND GET ANOTHER ONE!! It was so good. I immediately came home and looked for a recipe. I found this one from Trisha Yearwood and figured I'd give it a try. I did take another viewer's recommendation and used milk chocolate and toffee chips. OMG!!! These are DELICIOUS. I'm only keeping 5 pieces. If I keep them all, I'LL EAT THEM ALL. I gotta get these outta the house!! They're that good... item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've been making this for over 30 years. Variations I use are white, peanut butter or butterscotch chips alone or mix in with the chocolate chips. Sprinkle with nuts, crushed pretzels or toasted coconut . . think out side the box. I also sprinkle a little extra salt on the crackers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG. . . So easy to make and sooooo good to eat. My daughter loved it. She even asked if we would make them for her birthday treat to bring to school. If that isn't a review of how great they are I don't know what is!! The only thing I would suggest is to watch when you are cooking the butter and sugar together. When it changes colors and starts to bubble it's time to take it off the heat. Also you do have to keep a close watch when they are in the oven. It really doesn't take long for it to bubble. Good luck and hide a few for yourself or they will be gone by morning!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Im not a novist when it comes to cooking or baking but maybe I just did something wrong. The crackers were too chocolaty for me and I could barely taste the salt. I love Trisha's recipes and Im assuming from all the remarks that maybe I should try again. I followed the recipe exactly though...hmmmmm. Sorry Trisha. Maybe I will try again one day with less chocolate. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've made this recipe, as is, at least once a week for months. It doesn't stay around for long as my family is totally addicted to it. I have to make a double recipe of it every time. And, slongrn_12137297, I keep mine stored in a bowl (no need to cover in the fridge. Everything stays nice & firm that way. I had a piece that I let sit out for about half an hour that I forgot about and it got too mushy. Everyone in my family agrees storing them in the fridge is the way to go! BTW, after you spread the chocolate on, trying sprinkling the chocolate liberally with kosher salt. I added that the 3rd or 4th time I made it and my friends & family say it just takes this recipe over the top. I won't make it without that now! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE this recipe! It is so easy to make and like many have said there are so many variations that you can create. On a side noteI have always loved Hersheys Skor bar, but after having a severe allergic reaction to nuts I found I could no longer enjoy them. I have been looking for something that has a taste close to it since then and until now been unsuccessful. I look forward to sharing this recipe with EVERYONE! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this recipe today for my girls. They are absolutely delicious and I love the combination of the chocolate and brown sugar. I followed the recipe EXACTLY as written. My only complaint, and the reason I only gave it 4 starts, is because now that they are stored in a air tight bowel, the crackers are soft. I put them in the freezer as instructed, waited until completely cooled and cracked into small pieces. Not sure why the crackers are soft. Did anyone else have this problem. Brown sugar mixture and chocolate still firm. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I just finished making this for the first time, and they turned out great! I loved that it was just a couple of ingredients and relatively easy to throw together. Sort of tastes like chocolate covered toffee. And the saltines end up tasting like a shortbread cookie, oddly enough. I added walnuts, and also put a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice into my butter mixture (made them for a Christmas themed party!. They are incredibly rich and I probably couldn't eat more than a piece at a time, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. I would ease up a bit on the chocolate (maybe add some white chocolate?, but I'll definitely make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing treat!! I wish that people would follow the recipe exactly and then leave a review. When a recipe calls for BUTTER it does not mean MARGARINE. Two completely different ingredients. Margarine is almost 50% water. It is no wonder that your crackers came out soggy. Also, why do some of you have to leave nasty little comments? If your recipe didn't turn out correctly go back and check to make sure you did everything right. I don't understand why you would want to leave as mean review. Grow up please and find another hobby. I doubt that cooking is your thing. Thanks Trisha for all the great shows. Love your recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I think they taste like a Heath bar. I was going to say that I didn't like them and that's why I've only made them a dozen times, but I didn't want to offend. They are good and every time I take them somewhere(yeah right, I get rave reviews. But have to admit the peanut butter chips, coconut, nut additions sound really good. I like watching Trisha and her friends. Good show. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is such a great treat! This has become a new "staple" with my family and co-workers! I have changed it up a bit myself by using white chocolate chips or added chopped pecans and even coconut. My dad makes it all of the time and he has made it with chocolate and peanut butter mixed together and added chopped pecans! YUMMY!! Great recipe Trisha!! Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and used 1 1/2 sticks butter. Next time I will use just one stick of butter and maybe try the peanut butter chips. I salted the tops of a few after the chips went on which was nice. TIP: If you have a side-by-side freezer like me, opt to use 2 1/2 sheet pans as they will fit into the freezer - my large sheet pan didn't fit so I had to put it into the fridge for a while. I think pecans would be a lovely addition. This recipe is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty but I am underwhelmed, considering TY called this "crack" on tv!! I used semi sweet chocolate & it is kinda overpowering the other flavors. I also added some salt to brown sugar mixture, as I LOVE salty caramel flavored things. Didn't expect the floating saltines in the scalding hot sugar/ butter...re-adjusted them with a kitchen knife and all was well. I saw her make this in the show and that didn't happen to HER!!

I tweaked this, although I cannot find fault with the original, it's yummy that way as well. I added just a little cayenne to the caramel, enough to elicit a nice, warm "something" in the background, proceeded with the recipe as written, and after having spread the chocolate, I sprinkled on both toasted chopped pecans and toasted flaked coconut. Naughty, but nice! Thank you so much, Trisha, for the recipe! (And next time I might use Ritz Crackers.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched Triisha Yearwood's show with my 12 year old son Eddie one day, and saw that she was cooking with her nephews. Well, it is Friday and the kids are on spring vacation, and I thought I would try making her crack (my son and I loved what it was called. It was easy to make a very delicious. Worth making. Yummy. It makes a lot, so we all cansnack on it during the spring vacation. I will make it for Easter brunch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was extremely SIMPLE to make, took very little time, and it came out extraordinarily HEAVENLY. I used Graham crackers instead of saltines, semi-sweet&white choc chips, & topped it off with a few sprinkles of Kosher salt to bring back that salty/sweet balance. I also used 1/2 the amount of brown sugar by accident and I didn't feel like it was lacking sweetness. Will be something I will be making again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delish! I used a jelly roll pan and 40 crackers fit in it perfectly. You can mold the foil around the saltines to make it a snug fit. Make sure the butter and brown sugar combine completely. Larger chocolate chips work....I let them sit till melted and then spread it out to coat the whole top. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I think I did something wrong as the recipe came out sticky and the crackers were soggy. Did I not cook the syrup long enough and should they be kept in the refrig after cooking? They taste good but not fun to eat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a family with confidence it would be okay because it looked so easy on the show and so many people seemed to come out with a good product from the reviews I read. Anyhow, I did something wrong and am gonna need to try again. They were sticky and wet. I didn't use real butter...that could be it. Also, maybe I should have let the sugar mixture boil longer? The syrup seemed to saturate the crackers making them soaked. The chocolate melted well and was the right amount. My family tried them and liked them okay, but I think they could be better. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Just so you don't feel so bad, let me tell you that the caramel always goes under the crackers....in fact, that is the whole reason you put them in the oven! lol....To saturate the crackers with the caramel...I bet the food stylists at Trisha's show just made them look perfect for the photographs here...Don't feel bad, though. I think it is cool because people eating this cannot figure out where the crunch comes from cause the cracker is covered up. I like that. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great additions! item not reviewed by moderator and published
One thing I forgot, DO NOT USE MARGARINE! A friend of mine did that and they were a mess. Margarine is at least 50% water, so the crackers will turn into a soggy mess. Plus, you just can't equal the taste & texture of butter. This is not the recipe to substitute margarine for butter. Also, be sure to mix the butter/brown sugar mixture very well. It will thicken up. If you leave a layer of butter on top, it will make the crackers greasy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One last thing--do not neglect to use the non-stick spray! I made 3 batches of these last night for the office & ran out of spray for the last batch. I was peeling foil off the bottom of these things for half an hour, LOL. I had to be careful because the last thing anybody wants is to bite down on a piece of foil if you have fillings.

OKay, making again for Christmas party at Clubhouse--when you take out of freezer (def. takes full 20 min)--break apart right away! If you wait then you have to put back in freezer to harden again.
