Trisha Yearwood calls this Crack....It is so addictive!  The butter toffee with the saltiness of the saltines is awesome!  Cally made this last night and we can not quit eating it.  Especially Bill, he loves this stuff.

Cally and I saw Trisha Yearwood make it a few weeks ago on her cooking show.  There are 2 cooking shows that we will DVR they are Trisha Yearwood and Pioneer Women.  We both love watching these gals, they seem to cook a lot like we do so we can relate  :o)

Well tomorrow it is official, Cally will be a High School Graduate.  It is both exciting and sad at the same time.  I have taken off work the whole next week so it is lots of cleaning and cooking for me to get ready for the graduation party.  I will have lots to blog about by the end of next weekend so stay tuned.....

Sweet and Saltines
slightly adapted from Trisha Yearwood

40 saltine crackers
1 C butter
1 C light brown sugar
bag of milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a large jellyroll pan with foil and the saltine crackers.  In a medium saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.  Put the jellyroll pan in the oven and watch it closely.  Bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until just bubbly.  Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the crackers.  When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.  Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes or until completely cold.  Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
