Barks of any kind are a great choice for holiday gifts.  They don’t take much time at all, there are hundreds of different varieties, and they are super yummy!  Here’s a fantastic recipe that I’ve used a couple of years in a row now.  I love it!

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and line up 1 sleeve of saltine crackers (I made a double batch.  Well, more like 1 3/4 batch because my second cookie sheet was smaller)

Melt the butter in a sauce pan, and then add the brown sugar.

Bring it to a very low boil and then immediately reduce to a simmer, stirring frequently until a caramel forms.  Pay close attention to this – it’s easy to burn!

Once the caramel has combined and is smelling heavenly, pour it over the saltines and gently spread with a non-stick spatula.

Spread the chips out into a solid chocolate layer, and top with Heath bar pieces.  Place the pans into the freezer for 3-4 hours.   When frozen, turn them over, remove the foil and bust them into pieces.  Done!

Mmmm.  The saltiness of the crackers adds a lil something extra.  I’m really into salted chocolate this year!
