Hi, I'm Coleen Christian Burke, and I'm going to show you how to make Christmas bark with saltines. This is a terrific, easy to make treat at the holidays. You can make a batch and use it throughout the season for gifts. Think about your teachers, your school bus drivers, as a hostess gift, you get the idea. You will need four ingredients. Saltine crackers, two sticks of butter, a cup of brown sugar, and a bag of chocolate morsels. You will also need a jelly roll tray which is basically a cookie tray that is about an inch deep. I've already lined my tray with the crackers, making sure the crackers are touching. Then what you want to do is boil one cup of brown sugar and two sticks of butter for five minutes on the stove. When you're done, you're going to pour it over your crackers and it will look something like this. You want to smooth the mixture out pretty quickly as it hardens fast. This will go back in the often for five minutes at 375 degrees. When it comes out, the toffee will be bubbling and it will be hot so what we do at that point is we take our morsels and we spread them over this mixture and they will begin to melt on their own. You give them a minute or two to melt, you take that opportunity to sprinkle a topping on. In this case we're just using some more saltine crackers broken up. And when it's finished it will look like this. How beautiful is that? This will go in to the freezer for at least a half hour to set. When we bring it out you're going to break it in to pieces. And that's bark. Here it is here and look how beautiful that looks. And you know what, it really lasts. As long as you have it in an air tight container, this will take you through the holiday seasons. That is if you don't eat it first.
