Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful 2011, and I hope 2012 will bring even more blessings.
I probably should have posted this Christmas Bark recipe last week, but I was having too much fun with my family to worry about that. Besides, Christmas isn't the only time of year you can make this. If you're sticking to your new year's resolutions to be healthier, just bookmark this recipe until you've changed your mind a bit. It's worth it.
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 (12oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Place crackers in one layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet with sides. Melt butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. After it comes to a bubble, cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour butter-sugar mixture over the crackers. Spread evenly. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate morsels. When they start to melt, spread evenly over entire layer of crackers. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top; refrigerate 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator and crack into pieces.
