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 which is spread over the crackers, than bake this! As soon as it comes out of the oven, spread chocolate chips evenly all over, wait a minute or two & spread them all over the crackers. Top as desired! Let it cool then 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 ( this is optional, they are delicious without any topping too) … 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

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
