How to Make Christmas Crack
Yield: About 30-40 pieces
• 30 to 40 saltine crackers
• 1 cup unsalted butter
• 1 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chocolate of your choice)- I used Ghirardelli
• 1 12 ounce bag white chocolate chips OR colored candy melts of your choice
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large sheet pan with aluminum foil, and spray liberally with cooking spray (I used a half-sheet pan, you can use anything that will fit your crackers, or divide the recipe into two pans!)
Line saltines across the sheet pan. Try to only overlap them if you are pressed for space- you will want the caramel to stick to the entire surface of the cracker!
Place the butter and brown sugar in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, STIRRING CONSTANTLY with a rubber spatula, to ensure that the mixture doesn’t burn. Once a boil is reached, turn the heat to low and simmer until the mixture is thick (it will look like a thick bubbly pudding), about 3-5 minutes. Add the vanilla extract.
Pour the caramel over the saltines evenly- be VERY careful, it is extremely hot and will burn you! If the caramel doesn’t cover all of the saltines, use an offset spatula to spread it over top of all of the crackers. It’s ok if the caramel looks a bit separated when you spread it. It will come together nicely in the oven.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the entire surface of the sheet pan is bubbling. Be sure to watch carefully, and take it out once it bubbles. It WILL burn if you leave it in too long, and burnt sugar is no fun!
Allow the pan to cool to room temperature. You can place the tray in your freezer to expedite the process, but be aware that it will be extremely hot! Don’t melt your ice cream!
Once the saltine toffee is cool, it’s time to melt your chocolate. First, melt the dark/milk/semi-sweet/chocolate of your choice in 30-45 second intervals, stirring in between. Once your chocolate is melted, add a few splashes of vegetable oil to thin the chocolate to a spreadable consistency. This also quick “tempers” you’re chocolate so it doesn’t form that nasty white bloom once it cools.
Next, melt your white chocolate. This will be drizzled over the dark chocolate and then marbled for an awesome effect! You can choose to use plain white chocolate and color it yourself, OR purchase pre-colored candy melts from your local craft store. Either way, melt your chocolate and divide it into separate containers for each color (I divided up my melted chocolate into 4- one for white, green, pink, and red). Color each as you desire, and thin with oil so it is spreadable and not thick.
*, BE AWARE that you CANNOT use a water-based food coloring to color chocolate! The color MUST be oil-based. The best product to use is candy or chocolate food coloring.
Once your chocolate is all melted, you can marble! First, pour all of your dark chocolate over the toffee, spreading so it evenly covers the entire surface. While this is still wet, use a spoon to drizzle and dollop your colored chocolate all over the toffee- this doesn’t need to be exact, but try to get each color drizzled over most of the sheet of toffee.
Next, drag a skewer, toothpick, or the back of a paintbrush through the chocolate, circling in all directions, creating your unique marbling. Have fun with it! Feel free to add sprinkles, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or any toppings of your choosing.
Allow the chocolate to cool. Carefully flip the sheet over and remove the foil, and then either break or cut the Christmas Crack into pieces.
Keep the Crack wrapped tightly in plastic wrap until serving. Be aware that candy such as this is very susceptible to humidity, so keep it wrapped up tight to keep it fresh!
