Ingredients

  • ½ package gluten-free saltine crackers I like the Schar brand
  • 1 cup butter or dairy-free butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips ensure they are dairy-free
  • flakey salt
  • additional toppings of your choice candy canes, nuts, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Prepare a 9x13 inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the gluten-free saltine crackers so that they completely cover the surface. Set aside.
  • In a pot, melt the butter on medium heat. Add in the sugar and whisk to combine.
  • Bring the heat up to medium-high for 2 minutes, stirring often. The mixture will bubble, thicken, and darken. Be careful, as dairy-free butter can burn quicker than regular butter. Remove from heat and immediately pour over the crackers. Use an offset spatula to spread evenly. You'll have to work quickly.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and top with the chocolate chips. Place the sheet back in the oven for 1 minute to help them melt. Use an offset spatula to then spread the chocolate evenly over the entire surface.
  • Top with flakey salt, nuts, candy canes, or any other toppings you enjoy. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden, then break apart with your hands or a sharp knife. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week - but they won't last that long! Enjoy!
