Christmas Crack! It's Quick & Easy!

Welcome back to Quince Cottage!
As you may already know, we're pretty big fans of Pinterest. If you are too, please check out our boards here. Anyway, we kept seeing a recipe for "Christmas Crack" floating through our feed and we decided to try it.
The other name it goes by as Chocolate Saltine Toffee. Not quite as catchy...
We've seen a few variations in terms of recipes, which is great because it means it's "flexible" and you can customize it with things like peanuts, cashews, bacon bits, M & Ms, etc.
For our first attempt we decided to go with a basic version.

Are you drooling yet? Gonna have to send these to work with Ron, otherwise we'll just eat them all!

40-50 Saltines
2 sticks salted butter
1 C firmly packed light brown sugar
2 C milk chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Line an 8" x 11" (doesn't have to be this exact size) pan with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.
3. Line bottom of pan with saltines.
4. Melt butter and brown sugar together. Stir and let it come to a boil. Boil 2-3 minutes while stirring constantly.
5. Pour sugar-butter over saltines and quickly spread to cover (if it's not covering perfectly, don't worry).
6. Bake 6-8 minutes.
7. Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot mixture. Let the chips melt (we ended up having to put the pan back in the oven for 2 minutes). When they are melted, spread them evenly.
8. Let the pan cool down and then put it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes (until chocolate hardens).
9. Remove from freezer, lift foil and crack out of pan. Break crack into chunks.

This is one snack we can't share with Buster and Daisy, but don't worry about them - they get plenty of treats!
