Trisha Yearwood's Sweet and Saltines

Last night my family wanted something sweet after dinner, so I decided to try a recipe that I saw on Sunday's episode of Trisha's Southern Kitchen.  She referred to these Sweet and Saltines as crack (lol) so I had to try them.  Mine did not turn out as pretty as hers but this was just my first batch, I will be making them again.  My family loved them and yes they are addicting once you have had some.  They are a really good combination of sweet and salty, they were also really easy to make and easy to clean up.  Here is the recipe and check out Trisha's Southern Kitchen it comes on Sunday on the Food Network.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Line one large or two small cookie sheets with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray.  Arrange saltines on cookie sheet(s).  In med. sauce pan melt the butter and brown sugar until boiling and light caramel color.  Pour over crackers, covering evenly.

Bake for 3 to 5 minutes until bubbly, watching carefully.  Remove from oven and put on chocolate chips, let melt and spread evenly with a knife.

Place cookie sheet in freezer to harden up 15 to 20 minutes.  Break into pieces and enjoy, store leftovers in air tight container.
