My Dad and his wife had us over for dinner yesterday + my brother and his girlfriend were there, too. It was a fun time and my Dad always has a ton of delicious food for snacking. This year he didn’t disappoint. His BBQ ribs were amazing.
Doug and I both brought a dish. He made olive stuffed cheese balls and I made Saltine Cracker Brickle.
This recipe is so easy, you can literally make it in 5 minutes (even just after stepping out of the shower with your towel still on, thinking Ohmigod, I forgot to make dessert!) It’s so easy.

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1.5 sleeves Saltine Cracker
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups favorite chocolate (we used 4 standard size Hershey Chocolate bars, they are safe. Not mini, not holiday, not king size. Just regular size. You can find them sold in bulk during summer near smore + camping stuff in most grocery stores. Otherwise, Enjoy Life Brand is my go-to)
  • Jelly roll pan (rimmed cookie sheet)
  • Foil


  1. Preheat oven to 400*
  2. Prepare your cookie sheet by lining with foil and spraying it with non-stick spray like Pam.
  3. Line the cookie tray with one even layer of Saltine crackers. set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the two sticks of butter with brown sugar. Stir frequently over medium heat.
  5. Once it’s melted, pour evenly over crackers. Use spatula to evenly spread out.
  6. Bakr at 400 for 5 minutes.
  7. Prepare your chocolate while it’s baking.
  8. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the crackers immediately after its out of the oven.
  9. Use spatula to gently spread the chocolate around to create a nice even layer.
  10. Cool at room temp. It will harden and you can cut with a big knife.
  11. Enjoy!!

Toppings to sprinkle over the warm chocolate: crushed candy cane, crushed pretzels, dried fruits, Andes candes, nerds, red hots, sea salt, anything crunchy or salty. Nuts would be awesome if you can have them in your home!
