Saltine Surprises

This is a recipe from my friend, Kendall. She introduced these to me in junior high and made them throughout high school. One night in college I was craving these terribly. I begged her for the recipe. They are delicious and easy and delicious. I always use semi-sweet chocolate chips but my aunt made them with dark chocolate chips and they were out-of-this-world amazing. Did I mention they are delicious?

Saltine crackers
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
1 bag of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Line a jelly roll pan (with sides) with aluminum foil. Lay saltines salt side up on the pan. This should be one layer over the entire pan. Pour sugar and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Continue stirring while in a rolling boil for 3 minutes. Pour mixture over crackers. Cook for 8-9 minutes. Take pan out of the oven and pour entire bag of chocolate chips on top. It will take them a second but they’ll melt so you can spread them like you would frost a cake. Refrigerate until hard. About an hour. Break into pieces. Eat until you get sick.
