Foodies’ ‘Christmas crack’ dessert recipe will leave your mouth watering

Everybody has different Christmas traditions and recipes which they break out in December.

Whether it’s grandma’s gingerbread recipe, or your mum’s roasties, some things should never change.

However, there is a Christmas treat which is commonly made in the United States which is slowly making its way over to the UK.

And, we are not upset about it at all.

“Christmas Crack” is an easy-to-make pud consisting of a crumbly, biscuit-like layer topped with a hard caramel – which cracks when snapped – and chocolate.

Yum!

Now, don’t worry, it’s called Christmas Crack because of the hard toffee and it’s addictive nature, but there’s nothing untoward about the ingredients.

There are lots of ways to make the treat, but here is the simplest:

Christmas Crack

Ingredients:

  • 40 saltine crackers (you can use cream crackers if need be)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C
  2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray
  3. Cover the sheet with a layer of saltine crackers
  4. In a saucepan, bring the butter and sugar to a boil over a medium-high heat, stirring continuously for two minutes until bubbly.
  5. Take the mix off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Pour over the crackers and bake for six minutes in the oven.
  7. Melt some chocolate (whether white, dark or milk) in a bain marie – when the toffee is baked pour the chocolate on top.
  8. Add some sprinkles or nuts and allow the whole mix to cool.
  9. When completely cold and refrigerated (we’d leave it overnight) you can cut into swears or “crack” into shards.

If you want to be extra creative you can dye white chocolate with food colouring and stir festive colours into your top layer.

Plus, you can adapt the recipe however you want.

Crazy Ketosis Momma makes her Christmas Crack keto-friendly by using coconut flour, cream cheese, eggs and mozzarella to form the base and a brown sugar replacement for the toffee.
