Chocolate Caramel Saltines

My niece Sari gave this recipe over 20 years ago I am sure. It is simple & delicious & everyone loves it!

I make a very similar dessert with graham wafer squares Caramel Graham Wafers, but this is a bit different… this recipe has chocolate & I added some sprinkles & coconut on top, which are both optional

The recipe is simple, you line a cookie sheet with saltine crackers, make a caramel by melting sugar & butter, bake this, then spread chocolate chips over, spread that out & top as desired! Let it cool then I cut it into small squares….

I have to be honest & say that it was very difficult to stop snacking on these every time I walked by them.. so I froze them! I made them to take to a party but didn’t need all of them… everyone at the party really liked them & could not stop eating them either!

Thanks to my niece Sari for this great & yum recipe!

Here is the recipe


1 sleeve of Saltine Crackers … 35 crackers fit on my baking sheet

1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 300 g bag of chocolate chips

2/3 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup coconut

1/2 ice cream sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350f

Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper

  1. Lay the saltine crackers in a single layer all of the baking pan, set aside
  2. Melt the butter & brown sugar together in a saucepan, stir & boil gently for 3 minutes
  3. Pour the caramel evenly over the saltine crackers covering all of them
  4. Bake for 5 minutes… don’t bake this too long or the caramel will burn…so you have to watch ti
  5. Remove from the oven & sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the caramel right away so they can melt
  6. When you see that the chocolate softened, take an off-set spatula or a knife or use the back of a spoon & spread the chocolate evenly over the crackers
  7. Right away while the chocolate is melty… sprinkle with nuts, coconut & sprinkles … press gently into the chocolate otherwise the topping will fall off!
  8. Pop this into the refrigerator to cool so that the chocolate will harden up
  9. Then, I cut this into squares but you can break it up if you want!


press the toppings down so they stick in the chocolate
