Oh my. These candies are so addictive, that I don’t even have a finished shot of them. They were eaten up before I could artfully arrange them and snap photos of them. But it’s appropriate, I guess, since these candies aren’t pretty per se, they’re just delicious. Addictive even. Like, can’t stop eating them until you feel sick (but you’re OK with that).
And you can’t get any more simple than the process. Or the ingredients for that matter. To start, cover a baking sheet with tin foil and heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the foil with baking spray or rub with vegetable oil.
Spread about one and a half sleeves of Saltine crackers over the foil in a single layer.
When you pull the sheet back out, it will look the same! But the chips will be spreadable, so spread them out over the crackers. Sprinkle crushed Saltine crackers, chopped nuts, crushed peppermint or chopped dried fruit over the candies and place in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and then break into pieces. Eat (try to avoid eating them all in one sitting. OK, don’t. I won’t tell!).
These candies would make great gifts at the holidays, whether when visiting friends and families, as a hostess gift at a party, or for those beloved family members who have everything. Trust me, they will be asking for Saltine crack candy for year after year.
