What You’ll Need

  • 35 saltine crackers (about 1 sleeve from a 16-ounce box)
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups (12-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 pound bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled

What to Do

  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter; add sugar and bring to a boil 2 to 3 minutes, or until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring frequently. Immediately pour over crackers.
  3. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crackers; return to oven 1 minute. Remove and evenly spread chocolate, then sprinkle with bacon.
  4. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, then break into pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
