Holiday Bark

I decided that we needed one last Christmas treat this year right about the time I saw this yummy chocolatey, peanut buttery, toffee bark on Tastespotting. I knew that there was no way I could not make it, so make it I did.

I enlisted the help of my daughter to line a baking pan with saltine crackers for me while I heated up the toffee mixture. That’s right…saltine crackers. Sounds kinda funky, but oh my word, this stuff is so yummy. It’s also really addicting, so watch out for that. You don’t want to be like me, sneaking pieces of this bark in the middle of the night after waking up to go pee.

I’m sorry. I just said pee on my food blog. Heaven help us, but it’s about to get worse…

After the toffee had boiled for three minutes and turned a delicious amber color, I poured it over the saltine crackers. My daughter, my sweet, innocent, adorable little princess of a daughter…

…let out a squeal and shouted, “Ewwwww! Poop juice!”

Apparently she didn’t find the toffee quite as appetizing as I did.

I didn’t let her protests stop me though. I covered the crackers in the toffee, then in peanut butter, then in chocolate, and then, finally, in red and green M&Ms.

This is some darn good holiday candy, poop juice and all.
