Chocolate Bark Recipe - - The Best Holiday Treat EVER

This is my favorite holiday treat recipe. IT IS SO GOOD. It is simple and easy and usually can be made with staples that you have on hand in your pantry. I started making it last year and immediately began to get requests for the recipe. I just made it earlier this week for my son's first-ever pre-k concert and the teachers at his school began to ask for it. So here is the recipe!

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, be sure to say hello at the end of this post in the comment section.


Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line two baking sheets with tinfoil, and place Saltine crackers in a single layer.

Set a saucepan to medium high and add four sticks of butter.

Then add 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar.

Bring it to boil for just a minute.

Remember those saltines? Pour the butter toffee mixture over the saltines.

Put the sheets in the oven for ten minutes. I rotate the pans at the 5 minute mark. They'll come out all brown and bubbly.

Next get some chocolate, either 2 bags of Nestle morsels, or you can use Hershey Bars. After the sheet pans come out, put the chocolate on top of the crackers, and pop them back in the oven for a couple of minutes--just long enough to soften the chocolate.

Next chop some nuts. Whatever you like. I use that awesome Pampered Chef chopper. Got one? Get one!

Now, take the sheets out of the oven and with a spatula, spread the chocolate evenly over the saltines. (Honestly, I didn't have as much chocolate here as I wanted.) I would have liked to have had twice as much.

Next sprinkle the chocolatey goodness with the nuts. Or if you don't like nuts, skip that step altogether.

Place the baking sheets in the fridge or in a cold place so that they candy can set up for a few hours. After that, peel the bark away from the tinfoil and break into pieces.

Next? enjoy, hoover it like crazy, eat it for three meals a day, put it over vanilla ice cream, what have you. And be prepared to be the baker of the most popular treat at any holiday party you attend!
