This is a quick post of a wonderfully simple and delicious treat. My Mother sent this little gem over to me this morning and I ran out to the store to get the ingredients. I changed it up just a bit but I have the original recipe and I will let you in on my changes.
Ritz crackers 3 doz.
1 12oz. caramel topping (I used caramels)
1 cup chopped nuts (I used slivered almonds)
1 pack chocolate chips ( I melted them in the microwave)
In med saucepan on LOW, heat caramel and nuts ( I added the nuts to the top)
(Because I used caramels I added some canned milk. Just a little at a time to make it creamy)
Stir constantly for 3-5 min.
Remove from heat, let stand 5 min. ( With the caramels I did not have to wait it was a perfect consistency)
Spoon 1 1/2 tsp on top of each cracker.
Put in fridge for 1 hr until firm.
Melt chocolate and dip each cracker. (I have not mastered this yet! Any tips would be awesome)
Put on waxed paper until dry. “Mama/ 12/19/10″
(I added almonds and some heath chips to the top along with a sprinkle of coarse salt!)
Try it. I bet you love it!
P/S Thanks to my Mother for yet another fantastical recipe!!!!
I love you!
