This stuff is addictive. And, no, I didn’t mean to type “crack candy”.
Easy and fairly quick (I like that in food) and high in calories (also a plus — plus-size, that is), I don’t make this very often. There are only so many button extenders one can use before people notice. Value = 1
- 40 crackers (regular, though graham crackers are also nice)
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 12 oz (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- chopped nuts (optional, unless you’re me)
Line cookie sheet with foil. Arrange 40 saltine crackers in pan.
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
Bring to boil and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over crackers and spread with a spoon. Bake at 450 degrees for about 5 minutes. Watch closely to make sure it does not burn. Remove from oven and sprinkle on one 12 ounce package of chocolate chips. Let stand to melt. Spread and refrigerate. Break apart and serve.
I don’t have a picture of the finished product, because I eated it. The product, not the picture.
WRITING PROMPT: A character is gaining weight and doesn’t want to, but doesn’t want to diet or exercise (NO, I am NOT talking about myself, thank you very much). What, other than potential romance or health, would change that attitude.
