SALTED CARAMEL CRACKER BITES: A Sweet and Savory Delight

 

THE INGREDIENTS LIST:

40 salted crackers (such as saltines).

1 Cup.Of unsalted butter.

1 Cup.Of brown sugar, packed.

1 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.

1 1/2 Cups.Of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips.

Sea salt flakes, for garnish (optional).

INSTRUCTIONS:

1st Step

Set your oven’s temperature to 350°F (175°C) to start. To keep things from sticking, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the salted crackers on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure they are tightly fitted to completely cover the surface.

2nd Step

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, then mix in the brown sugar. Stirring continuously, let the mixture gently boil. When the mixture reaches a boil, keep stirring for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until it thickens and resembles caramel. The combination will be quite hot, so use caution.

3rd Step

After turning off the heat, gently add the vanilla essence to the pot. The caramel will have a great depth of taste as a result. Pour the hot caramel liquid swiftly and evenly over the positioned crackers. If necessary, spread it out with a spatula to make sure all the crackers are covered.

4th Step

For around 10 minutes, or when the caramel is bubbling and has slightly darkened, place the baking sheet in the preheated oven. As soon as you take the baking sheet out of the oven, evenly distribute the chocolate chips over the warm caramel. Give them some time to soften while they are sitting.

5th Step

Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to carefully distribute and smooth the melted chocolate over the caramel-coated crackers after the chocolate chips have softened. The Salted Caramel Cracker Bites should be given time to totally cool completely. By putting them in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes, you may hasten the process.

6th Step

Use a sharp knife to slice the caramel crackers into bite-sized pieces after they have fully cooled and hardened. For an added taste boost, top with a pinch of sea salt flakes if preferred. These delicious delights are ready for you to enjoy! Place them on a dish and see how quickly they are gone.
