Cracker Candy: So simple, yet so amazing…
1 tablespoon margarine (not butter)
2 packages salted soda crackers
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Line baking sheet with foil. With a spatula, spread a layer of margarine over foil.
Layer soda crackers side by side on foil until baking sheet is completely covered.
Melt butter in saucepan and add brown sugar. Whisk to combine, bring to boil – keep whisking until thickened. Pour evenly over soda crackers, starting from the outside edges into the centre. Using a spatula, carefully spread evenly over crackers.
Place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and re-form crackers on pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of crackers. Turn off oven and place baking sheet back in oven for 2 minutes.
Using spatula, evenly spread out the melted chocolate chips. Sprinkle with slivered almonds and place in fridge for 2 hours.
Peel off foil and break into small pieces.
