Boston Candy

TGIAC Featured Recipe

Boston Candy…. no idea why it’s named that… its what i was told, all i know is it’s been a hit wherever I’ve brought a bowl of it. The clincher? RIDICULOUSLY easy to make.

These suckers are addictive… especially by the third day they’re around.

So next time you’ve got a pot-luck party to go to and need to bring a dessert… bring a bowl of this and let the compliments roll!

By the way… this is soooooooooo not healthy so any calorie counters… don’t bother!

Here we filled the aluminum lined tray with the crackers.

On medium heat, we melted the brown sugar and butter until we got a nice caramel color (bubbling)

We then poured the “caramel” over the crackers and spread it with a spatula. Put it in the oven for approximately 5 minutes.

Take out tray from oven and sprinkle on the chocolate! Put back in for about 2 minutes.

Take out and swirl the chocolate!!! Now pop it in the freezer for 1 hour.

Take out and peel off aluminum.

Break it into bite size pieces and guard it from whoever is around!!!
