Christmas Crack – Judythe Morgan



I’m happy to be here today to share a favorite recipe for the holidays. Easy peasy to prepare. You can vary using saltines, graham crackers, or even chocolate graham crackers. Peanut butter chips can also be substituted for chocolate chips and almonds or walnuts sprinkled on top. Once you taste the toffee-like confection, you’ll find it addicting hence the “crack” label.

Melt two sticks of unsalted butter in a sauce pan (1 cup of butter)

Mix in one cup of light brown sugar. Stir till it’s all mixed and melted together.

Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and rub with butter. Don’t spray with Pam because that’s just gross. =)

Lay out graham crackers on the foil, enough to cover it all.

Pour the melted butter/brown sugar mix over it, distributing as evenly as you can.

Pour a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips over the top of the whole thing. 

Put in a 350 oven for about 12 minutes, until the chocolate chips start to melt.

Then pull it out and use a spatula to spread the chips into a layer of chocolate. 

Place the cookie sheet in the fridge or freezer until it all hardens, then crack it up into bite-sized pieces.

She’s a firm supporter of the budding women’s lib movement with no room in her plans for any man. No matter how captivating his smile.

In an uncertain time, yielding to temptation changes both lives forever.
