  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 1 A big pinch of salt
  • 11 c. butter (2 sticks)
  • 11 c. light brown sugar
  • 1½ bag chocolate chips
  • 12 bags Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses (and if you can't find those, Dove Peppermint Bark or Andes Peppermint Crunch Thins are totally acceptable substitutes)Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and then chop your candy into small pieces (I chopped each kiss into 4-6 pieces, if that gives you an idea of how small to go).
  • 1 Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil, and line the sheets with a single layer of saltine crackers. Sprinkle a fat pinch of salt over the crackers. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar, whisking constantly. Once the sugar and butter fully combine, stop stirring. The mixture will start to boil -- let it boil for 3 minutes without stirring. Then pour the mixture over the crackers and use a spatula to make it spread evenly.
  • 1 Bake the crackers for 5 minutes. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips -- return to the oven for 1 minute to melt the chips. Use a spatula to spread the chocolate into a smooth layer -- don't worry if the crackers shift around while you're doing this -- just slide them back into place.
  • 1 Sprinkle the peppermint candy over the chocolate. It will get a little bit melty and stick in place. Then freeze the crack until the chocolate and candy fully set. Break into pieces and serve.
