Bark | As in Easy Chocolate Toffee Nutty Yummy Bark

Monday, February 17, 2014

I wear my heart on a sleeve which means you most likely are already aware that I love chocolate.  Actually I come from a family of chocolate lovers which makes it no surprise that this yummy recipe also came from a family member.  Each year at Christmas our boys request this treat, but for whatever reason this time around, I didn't get around to making it.  So, in order to redeem myself, this was my Valentine's offering.  I'm guessing it was well received considering it disappeared within hours.  If you make it I would love to hear what you think.  And by the way, this is one of the easiest, most impressive looking sweets, in my arsenal of sweets. 


Preheat oven to 400.  Line cookie sheet with foil.  Place saltines on foil to cover, breaking them as necessary to completely line the pan.  (I normally use one sleeve of saltines)



Melt butter and brown sugar, stirring well.  Boil for 2 minutes.


Pour evenly over crackers.  Bake for 7 minutes.


Note that the crackers may float, so be ready with a knife to gently put them back into place.


Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips on top of the crackers and spread as a frosting.


If they don't melt, put them in the oven for a while.  Sprinkle nuts on top (if desired) patting them in.  Cool in fridge or freezer.  When cold, peel off foil, and break into pieces.


Enjoy!

  2. My mother in law makes this for my husband - although she doesn't take the time to melt the chocolate chips - I think melting them would take it to a whole other level! My aunt makes it with graham crackers on the bottom, which is kind of amazing too.
