Christmas Crack

Give me all of the sweets for Christmas!

This is the time of the year where dieting goes right out of the window. And this Christmas treat is super addictive, hence the name: Christmas crack!

I took this to school and bunco this week and it is a great party favor or to just keep in your refrigerator as a snack!

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Place about 1 to 1-1/2 sleeves of saltine crackers on the pan, making sure they are all touching and the parchment or baking mat extends past the edges of crackers.

Combine 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup dark brown sugar into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Let boil for 3 minutes until nice and thick.
