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!
Heath Bar Brickle
What You’ll Need:
1 sleeve of saltine crackers (about 40 crackers)
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1 cup salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
5-6 heath bars, crushed
What You’ll Do:
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.
Immediately pour the bag of chocolate chips and let sit 3-5 minutes.
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!
