Chocolate Caramel Crackers!

Today I made some chocolate caramel crackers which I haven’t made in an age!! It’s my gorgeous cousin’s recipe and tastes like dime bar biscuits!! 

So….

Ingredients:

Salted crackers : saltines, matzos or Doriano Italian Crackers (I use the Doriano)

8oz unsalted butter

8 oz light brown soft sugar

1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla essence

And here is my slight variation I used milk chocolate instead of dark and about 10 oz not the recommended 8oz!

Preheat oven to 180c (350F) or gas 4/5

Line a deep baking tray with foil (have the foil up the sides a bit) then line the foil with non stick baking parchment.  This helps getting the finished product out of the tin and saves much scrubbing!! 

Cover the base of the tin in a single layer of crackers.

Melt the butter in a heavy based pan then add the sugar and stir until melted together.

Bring to the boil, keep stirring

Boil for 3-4 minutes, keep stirring!!

Remove from heat, quickly add the vanilla essence and stir through, then spread over the crackers evenly.

Put it into the oven for 10-15 mins checking in case of burning towards the end.

Meanwhile melt the chocolate.

Remove from the oven and wait for the mixture to stop bubbling and pour/spread over the chocolate.

Allow to cool then refrigerate to completely cool and solidify.

Break into pieces and serve!

It will keep for up to a week in a airtight tin….. If it gets chance!!
