Cracker Candy... Sooo Good!

Some of you have asked for the recipe for the Cracker Candy that I made, so here it is!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

1 sleeve of saltine crackers
1 stick of butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped almonds

1. Arrange the crackers in a single layer on the backing sheet so that they are no empty spaces in between them.

arrange the crackers in a single layer on the baking sheet so that there are no empty spaces in between them. 

2.  Microwave the butter and brown sugar for about 5 min.  Carefully pour the sugar-butter mixture over the crackers on the baking sheet in an even layer.

3.  Bake the toffee crackers at 350 degrees for five minutes, until the toffee is bubbling all over. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool for one minute.

4.  Spread the chocolate chips evenly as it melts over the crackers.  Top with chopped almonds.

5. Refrigerate the pan for about 30 minutes. Once set, break into small pieces.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
