Caramel Chocolate Bark


These taste like chocolate covered heath bar, but, if you can believe it, better!

So easy and fast to make, impressive and makes a great gift.

Let the sweet adventure begin!


Line an 11 x 7 inch jelly roll pan with aluminum foil.


Spray very liberally with nonstick cooking spray.


Arrange about 15 saltine crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan.


Melt 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) in a large bowl, in the microwave.


Add 1/4 cup white sugar,


1/4 cup brown sugar,


1 teaspoon vanilla,


and the secret ingredient to making this spectacular, 1 Tablespoon white vinegar.


Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth.

Microwave on high, uncovered, for 4 minutes and 30 seconds in 1 minute and 30 second intervals (3 times).  Whisk thoroughly after each interval before returning to microwave.  Microwave for 30 second intervals, whisking in between, until you reach about 7 minutes and 30 seconds. (The caramel will be darker in color and the candy thermometer will register at 250 degree F.)


Carefully remove caramel from microwave and pour over the crackers in the pan.  It may look a little chunky or separated, as above, but it doesn’t matter…it’s perfect!


Next, microwave 1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips for 1 minute in a glass bowl.  Stir until all is melted (may need an extra 30 seconds).


Add 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips to the melted chocolate in the bowl.  Stir until they melt.


Pour over caramel coated crackers.


Spread evenly.  Let sit in fridge (covered in foil, so that the chocolate doesn’t absorb the odors from the refrigerator) until it sets.


Break apart into bite-size pieces and serve.  Or keep wrapped in foil in your fridge for quite a long time!


Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
