I have a new sweet & salty addiction and it is called Christmas toffee. I could pop this stuff in my pie hole all day and never tire of it, and I guarantee your friends and family will feel the same! Here is how to make this addicting delicacy.

Ingredients:

  • 30 to 40 saltine crackerspile 1
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9 x 13 pan or similar with aluminum foil and spray it very well with cooking spray. Place the saltine crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan.
  2. In a saucepan, combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil while stirring constantly.  Once a boil is reached, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Stir the mixture often while it simmers to avoid bubbling over or scorching.
  3. After mixture has thickened a bit, remove it from the heat, wait 30 seconds, add the vanilla extract and stir. Pour mixture over the prepared pan with the saltine crackers. Bake in for 5- 7 minutes, or until toffee/liquid becomes bubbly.
  4. After removing the pan from the oven, let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips and wait for 3 to 5 minutes, letting them soften and melt a bit, and then spread and smooth them into an even layer with a spatula. After they have cooled a bit stick the pan in the fridge or freezer to firm them up. My family actually stores the toffee in the fridge to keep it fresh, and it tastes great cold.

Enjoy, and have a Merry Christmas!

XOXO, Chels

Whenever I’m hungry, I go straight to the kitchen and snack on some of my favorite fruits and vegetables. Okay okay okay, maybe they’re not my first choice. Usually my stomach is craving some sweets and dessert treats! Something I like to do during my lazy summer days is experiment with some recipes. Here is one in particular that tastes absolutely ahhh-mazing, and with summer coming up, what’s a better time to try it out for yourself?Chelsea Crockett - Pretzel Bark

First off, you’ll need to take a trip to the grocery store and pick up a few ingredients: a 1-pound bag of mini pretzel sticks, you’ll only use about half of the bag, 2 sticks of butter (about one cup), 1 cup of packed light brown sugar, 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sea salt (optional).

Second, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover the bottom of the baking sheet with aluminum foil to avoid the pretzels sticking to it! In a saucepan, over medium heat, mix together to butter and brown sugar. When it starts bubbling, let it sit still for 3 minutes. Then pour the mixture over the pretzels laid out on the baking sheet. Bake it for only 5 minutes then remove and pour the chocolate chips all over the top of the pretzels! Let the dessert cool at room temperature for as long as you like, or as long as you can stand it! Then dig in, YUM!

Enjoy!- Chelsea
