Easy Chocolate SquaresSubmitted by: OASIS1223
IntroductionThe caramel, chocolate and touch of salt with the crackers made these a huge hit with the gang. The calorie count is low -- if you can stick to just one serving. It reminds me of a homemade chocolate bar. The caramel, chocolate and touch of salt with the crackers made these a huge hit with the gang.

Saltines - to fill the baking sheet (40 fits on mine). I use the whole wheat ones.
Butter (do not substitute), 1/2 cup
Granulated Sugar 1/3 cup
Vanilla extract 1 Tsp
Semisweet chocolate chips 2 cups
**Melt 1/2c butter (only butter!) and stir in 1/3 cup of granulated sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Once melted spread over crackers evenly
**Bake at 350degF for about 8-10min until sugar caramelizes.
**Immediately sprinkle 2c chocolate chips evenly over the crackers. Once they melt spread the chocolate over the crackers.
**Refrigerate until cooled and break into pieces.
**Some Notes on my Edits (Mar 23, 2007):
1. Nutritional information is calculated estimating a serving size of 1 saltine= 1 serving.
2. 40 saltines fit on my baking sheet (I was going off of memory before and I was way off on the size of the saltines)
3. I found whole wheat saltines at the grocery store and think they give better flavor (nuttier) and more fiber.
Number of Servings: 40
