INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Spray lightly with no-stick cooking spray. Arrange crackers on baking sheet in single layer so that the edges almost touch.
  • 2 Heat butter and brown sugar in 2-quart saucepan on medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in salt and vanilla.
  • 3 Pour caramel sauce over crackers and spread to evenly coat crackers. Bake 6 minutes.
  • 4 Remove pan from oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips over caramel layer. Let stand 5 minutes. Spread chocolate chips into an even layer on top of caramel. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or freeze 30 to 45 minutes or until firm.
  • 5 Break or cut into pieces to serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

    Test Kitchen Tips:
    • Stir 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon into caramel mixture along with salt and vanilla.
    • Sprinkle chopped pistachios and chopped McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Crystalized Ginger over chocolate layer immediately after spreading over crackers.
    • Substitute chocolate confectionary coating wafers (such as Wilton® Candy Melts®) for the chocolate chips. Heat Candy Melts as directed on package and stir in your favorite McCormick® Extract to taste such as Peppermint, Orange or Almond.
