A Recipe and More

Our day of being (pretend) snowbound is over and we are back in the swing of things - meaning school is going full force and Mama is attempting some clutter control (except that my yummy new yarn and pattern that I LOVE keeps calling me to add a row - or 2 or 3!!)

I've been asked for the recipe for these delicious treats!!  You won't believe how easy they are - or how very naughty they are if you are counting calories - ugh!!!
Saltine Cracker Treats

Line a cookie sheet with saltine crackers (I like to line my pan with parchment paper - way easier clean-up - more time to eat sweets hehehe!!!). 

In a sauce pan melt:
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
bring to a boil and and boil for 3 minutes - pour over crackers and spread

Bake at 400* for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with 2 cups of chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes.  Spread melted chocolate.  You can top with chopped nuts, sprinkles or crushed candy canes (I like mine just plain!!)  I find that I need to put the pan in the fridge to get the chocolate to harden enough to break into pieces - but that may be because I am too impatient to wait!!

If you are like me and LOVE salty, sweet treats these will most certainly satisfy!!  In fact these cookies were calling my name all afternoon yesterday (and to think I made them for the kids!!!) - and I think I hear them faintly from the closed pantry right now!!! 

Oh dear, with my super cool new yarn and these treats I have shown a distinct lack of self control - I wish I could blame it on my pregnant state but I don't think that would be quite truthful!!!

THANK you for sharing that sinful I needed another sweet treat in my house. :) I hope you are going to share what your yummy yarn and pattern are...we all need a good distraction from time to time. :)

Enjoy your day/evening. :) wish we had snow, this rain is really getting to me. Ready for snow, or spring. :) No, not really, but I AM ready for snow. Saying a prayer...for both of us.

Our schooling is off to a slow start so far this year. But we're moving along, at least at turtle speed. Thanks so much for the recipe. I've had 2 kids so far asking if you posted it. I have a feeling we will be having these for dessert today.
