The Best Brittle

Parents that drop off goodies in appreciation for teachers and school staff rank among the best.  I just happend to be working one day in the office at Truman’s school when  a sweet mom, Terri, dropped a plate of this very addicting brittle by for the office staff.  Thanks Terri for introducing me to something so delish that doesn’t have 10 ingredients.  A mix of  salty, sweet, AND  chocolate had me at hello. 

The Best Brittle

 2 sticks butter

1 cup brown sugar

saltine crackers

1 (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line 10X15 cookie sheet with foil. Make sure the foil goes up on each side of the pan a little. Grease foil with butter. Line pan with saltine crackers. Sometimes depending on crackers, I have to cut crackers on the edge into smaller pieces to fully line the pan. Melt butter and b. sugar and  bring to boil. After starts boiling, stir constantly for 3 minutes. Pour over crackers. I usually move mixture around to cover the crackers the best I can. The rest will spread out when in oven. Place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately pour chocolate chips on top of caramel mixture. Let them melt and evenly spread. Place pan in refrigerator until brittle gets hard. Pull brittle off of foil and break into pieces. I recommend keeping in refrigerator until you are ready to eat. It is better when it is hard! ENJOY!
