Sweet And Sassy-Er-Salty

Did you think this was
going to be post
about 
SweetCheeks?
You know...
Sweet and Sassy?
(You DO see what the
shirt says, right?;>)

But- NOPE
This is going to be
a post about
Saltines.
Only they don't TASTE like
Saltines.
This is a fun little 
Sweet Treat 
that takes no time to 
prepare and is just 
plain good.
Sweet & Salty Saltines
(Trisha Yearwood Recipe)

40 Saltines
2 sticks butter
1 cup light brown sugar
8 oz (1 -1/3 cups) chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 425º.  Line large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lay out the saltine crackers.
In medium saucepan melt butter and brown sugar and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour evenly over crackers.  Bake for  5 minutes (or just until bubbly).
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over saltines.  As they melt spread them over cracker with a knife.  Transfer to freezer for 15-20 minutes or until completely cold.  Break into pieces and store in airtight container.

For really SWEET treat use graham crackers instead of Saltines.
For Crunchier cracker use one stick of butter rather than two.



You are going to love these!
Pinky promise!!!!
And remember-
Give these to your friends 
BECAUSE...
The fatter they get
The skinnier you look!;>)

  4. YUM-EEEE! These sound divine and the recipe looks too easy (if you know what I mean...so easy that I will probably make them and eat them all...not good for my diet).
    Thanks so much for sharing this sweet and salty recipe...good combo.

  10. Ooooh!! A friend of mine made these a couple months ago, and I keep 'forgetting' to make them, knowing I would definitely be consuming the entire batch!! These are sooooo good!!

    Thanks for making my mouth water early this morning :)

  14. It's a good thing I don't have any crackers in the house. That looks like the kind of thing where you only mean to eat one! ~ Maureen

  17. I had a friend who made these and they are so good and addictive! I think one stick of butter is probably a better idea for me since I'd probably eat them all!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have a similar version using chocolate graham crackers and pecans. These things are addictive. Everyone loves them. I'm going to make this version when my little niece comes back in 2 weeks. She will love it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay you have me drooling. These sound dangerous, I know if I made these I would eat every piece.

    ReplyDelete
  20. OK, I noticed the TWO sticks of butter and immediately feared for my hips. They do sound wonderful though. Maybe I can make them and freeze them so I only eat one or two a day.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is just the recipe I need. Every time I eat chocolate (and I confess, that's often), I immediately head to the pantry to look for something salty. Now I can take care of both cravings at once. Sounds perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oooooh, you are just plain evil Diana! I think you are trying to fatten us all up! I've made this before with graham crackers, they are just too good, it's hard to stop eating them!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, Diana! These are positively lethal! More than once they were the reason for my extra holiday pounds!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Two of my favorite things "sweet" and "salty".
    That sounds WONDERFUL!
    Oh YUM!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like the last part...very funny! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh Boy! Those look veeeeeeeeeerry yummy. :)

    I may try them. As soon as I can get to the store to get everything. I like chocolate frosting on graham crackers so I may use those first.

    Have a great evening and a wonderful Wednesday.

    Take care, Janet W

  27. Oh, I'm in trouble! I'm still doing thin mints, and now this? Yum!

  28. I tried something like this before that was supposed to taste like those old time club sandwiches...somehow mine didn't fast like that!! thanks for this recipe that I will give to all my skinny friends.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, these sound incredible. I still am wanting to make your sugar butter...now I have another recipe to add. You are making my butt big, woman....:))
