Saltine Cracker Bark


A question was posed to me the other day by a fellow blogger. She asked me “What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish that you cook?” My reply was, it was actually a dessert that was my favorite thing to make. This inspired me to share this recipe with you. With the holidays coming, this is a great treat to bring to holiday parties & get togethers. They are a never fail hit. Every holiday, for more years than I can remember my family has put in a special request for me to make this super easy, ridiculously delicious & crazy addicting dessert.

Here is what you will need.


1 sleeve of saltine crackers

1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup of margarine (2 sticks)

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of crushed walnuts

(For white chocolate bark replace chocolate chips with white chocolate chip & walnuts with almonds slivers.)


Preheat oven to 375

In a saucepan melt the margarine on low heat. Do not let it bubble.


While margarine is melting, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil & lay out the saltines side by side so that the edges are touching


When margarine is fully melted, slowly pour in sugar & stir until sugar dissolves.


Quickly pour the mixture evenly over saltines & spread with rubber spatula.


Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Times will vary depending on your oven, so watch to make sure they don’t burn.

Take out of the oven & pour the chocolate chips over the top. When the chips turn shiny, spread evenly with a rubber spatula.


Sprinkle nuts over the top & let cool.


After the chocolate hardens, break up into bite sized pieces.


These seriously are an amazing dessert. I make tins of these during the holidays & give them as gifts. Enjoy!
