Reindeer Crunch: A Yummy Holiday Treat

Step 1


1 sleeve saltine crackers

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter

1 package chocolate chips

3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a 10" x 15" cookie sheet with foil (the kind of sheet that has raised edges!). Spray with Pam or grease VERY lightly with butter. Cover the cookie sheet with a single layer of saltines.

Step 3

Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil.

Step 4

Pour over the saltines, and try to spread it as evenly as possible. Place in preheated oven and bake for 5 minutes. When you remove it, the caramel mixture will be molten and boiling. Allow to cool for about 3 min, or until you can see the crackers distinctly. Crackers may shift while baking. If this happens, push them back into order with a fork or knife.

Step 5

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffee and let sit for about 5 minutes to melt. Once melted, spread chocolate evenly.

Step 6

Once hard, break the candy into small pieces and place in containers.

Step 7

Some other options: Sprinkle M&M candies, mint chips, or white chocolate on top of the Reindeer Crunch.
