Cracker Brittle

By Linda Finney, Elmore County

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 10 mins Makes: 40 to 50 pieces


40-50 saltine crackers

1 cup butter

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter or vanilla morsels


Heat oven to 400 F. Line jellyroll pan with heavy duty aluminum foil. Lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place saltines in a single layer on the foil.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring butter and brown sugar to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes once bubbles form. Drizzle over saltines. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with morsels, using a spatula to spread melting chips. Cool in refrigerator. Peel crackers from foil and break apart. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
