- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 package unsalted soda crackers (You could also try graham crackers)
- 1 package milk chocolate chips
You will need a cookie sheet and tinfoil. First, set your oven to 350 degrees. Cover your cookie sheet in tinfoil, and lay out the soda crackers so they cover the entire thing. One package should fit a standard size sheet exactly (mine is a bit smaller).
Combine the butter, brown sugar and baking soda in a small pot and set the element to medium. Low heat is the key to this recipe.
Now that the butter is starting to melt, start stirring the mixture. The more you stir, the less likely the sugar is to burn to the bottom of the pan.
Eventually your caramel (that's what this is, in case you couldn't smell it) will get this light layer of foam on top. What you need to do is leave it on the element and keep stirring until this foam is gone. I can usually tell by the color.
Perfect! When it looks like this, you can take it off.
Pour the whole thing over your sheet of crackers, and spread it around with a spoon so that it covers the entire tray.
Toss it in the oven for 10 minutes. If you didn't leave the caramel on the element for long enough, then it will still foam when you put it in the oven. The result is a sticky goopy mess all over the inside of the oven, which is very bad when it burns later and sets off the fire alarms.
When it's done, it should look like this.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the tray. When they start to melt from the heat, spread them around with a spoon so they cover the entire thing.
Once you're all done, stick the thing in the freezer and go watch some TV or something. You'll have to leave it until it's brittle enough to break apart by hand.
