Sweet & Saltines From Trisha Yearwood

I am now cooking out of my new favorite cookbook!  Foodie bloggers all over have been raving about this cookbook, and since I am now the proud owner of it, I have to raise my hand in the air and do the happy dance along with everyone else!  The recipes are straight forward and there is a lot of family history and funny old photos along with tips on how to make the most of each recipe.
These saltines looked really good on paper, and they did taste good–gotta love the sweet and salty mixture, just like eating french fires and a chocolate shake, but they were kind of a mess to take out of the pan.  I used aluminum foil, but next time I may try sprayed parchment paper.

Sweet and Saltines by Trisha Yearwood
INGREDIENTS:
40 saltine crackers
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup light brown sugar
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/3 cups)
**I used 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar and that was plenty
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Line a large jellyroll pan with aluminum foil and the saltine crackers.  In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.  Put the jellyroll pan into the oven and watch closely.  Bake for 4 or 5 minutes or until just bubbly.  Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers.  When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.  Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. They will form one big sheet.  Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

    They look great! I have both of her cookbooks and love the second one, so many good things in it. I will definitely have to try this! I have made one similar using graham crackers, chocolate chips and pecans.

    I so didn't need this recipe…but I couldn't stop looking, or drooling. Okay, if I can limit myself, they sound truly delicious. Yeh, I think the parchment paper matters.

    These look good! I've made something similar using graham crackers instead of saltines.

    I hadn't hear of this cookbook before but between you and Mommy's Kitchen, I feel like I need to check it out!

    BTW… thanks so much for the tip on google docs. It took a bit to figure out, but I think I have the hang of it now!

    Yum! Looks good to me. Back when I listened to country music, I really liked Trisha Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks. I bet it's an interesting read full of great recipes. Share more good ones when you can!

    Great post. I got inspired to cook Trisha's recipes after seeing the sweet and saltines. I just made the ribs and sorry but they were inedible. Happy for feedback – where did I go wrong? http://www.cookmybooks.net/uncategorized/home-cooking-with-trisha-yearwood/

    I made these about 2 weeks ago and used wax paper. They turned out tasting good, but when I used the wax paper, the wax paper was messy with stuff off the saltines and stuck to the saltines. That part was messy, but still good. Next time I will use aluminum foil instead of wax paper.
    When I used 1 stick butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar, I found out it was not enough to completely cover those saltines. Next time, I will use 2 sticks butter and 1 cup brown sugar, just like the recipe says.
    But overall, the fact is they were really good and addicting.

    When I used wax paper, it went through the wax paper, where if I had used aluminum foil, it may be might not have gone through the foil.

    I’ve made this several times & love them. I don’t like the cooking spray stuff, so I just smeared the foil with butter & they released like a charm.
