Valentine's(2)

Christmas is long gone but who says we need to put away the crack???  I tried Christmas crack for the first time this year and I must admit it was love at first bite.  I have made it my own personal mission to create a Valentine’s version.  Of course the taste and recipe are the same, I have just switched up the color chocolate and decorations in honor of Valentine’s Day. 

Be careful who you gift with this Valentine’s crack because it will also be love at first bite.  πŸ™‚

These are dipped in LOVE and served from the heart.  Anyone that is gifted these delicious treats will know how much they are loved.

Melting chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

Prep Time

Cook Time
10 min
Ingredients
  1. 50 Saltine Crackers
  2. 1 Cup butter cut into chunks to melt down (2 sticks)
  3. 1 Cup LIght Brown Sugar
  4. 2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
  5. 1/4 Cup Pink Chocolate Melts
  6. Valentine's Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large cookie tray with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray. Line saltines up neatly in rows.
  2. In a medium sized pot melt your butter and brown sugar. Once butter is melted down, bring to a boil. Continue to stir the entire time and boil for about 2 minutes. It will look gorgeous and bubbly.
  3. Pour over the top of the saltines. Gently spread across the saltines.
  4. Place in oven and bake for about 7 minutes.
  5. While your crack is in the oven melt your pink chocolate melts according to package directions. *Please see the body of the post, I have included my no fail chocolate melting tips.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and than sprinkle your white chocolate chips over the saltines. Your hot toffee mixture will melt the chips. I put mine back in the oven for a minute to move the process along. Once your chips are melting, spread across the top evenly with a spatula.
  7. Mix your pink chocolate into the white chocolate by pouring it over the top in a decorative way. I also used a butter knife tip to help combine my colors to my liking. Quickly decorate with sprinkles that tickle your fancy, the melted chocolate will act as your glue.
  8. Once chocolate is completely hardened you are ready to serve your LOVES.

    Hi quick question — after they are finished do you cut them into squares or do the break apart into the individual crackers?

    FYI I used Hershey white chocolate chips and they did not melt on the toffee. Even after about 5 minutes in the oven. Not sure why. Ended up leaving them as chips and then topping the whole thing with the pink melted chocolate and sprinkles. Next time I will probably use white chocolate melts instead of chocolate chips. I’m sure they will still taste delicious and no one I am serving them to knows what they are supposed to look like anyway. πŸ™‚

      It can be a bit tricky sometimes getting the chips to melt perfectly. if it continues to give you a hard time, you can melt them in the microwave and than pour it over the top already melted. πŸ™‚

      The exact same thing happened to me. Hershey’s didn’t melt. For batch #2, I melted them in the microwave and poured them over the crackers. Also, I learned not to use generic saltines. There were hardly any whole crackers in my box. Brand crackers are sturdier.

    I just tried making these and followed the instructions to a T…but the brown sugar/butter part is grainy now that it’s cooled. :(. I don’t understand why. Any suggestions?

      I am not sure what it could be. BUT I will tell you, it can be a bit tricky to make. I have had days where i just can not get it right at all. Then other days it comes our perfect with no issues at all. I am not sure if the humidity can affect it or what can be the difference sometimes vs other. I really do consider myself an pro at making it now that i have made it soooo many times and yet I have days it just does not come out right!
