Made these over the weekend......addictive!

Okay, so it doesn't look like much here but let me tell you......if you want an easy, fast delicious dessert here's your answer!  It's really a cross between a cookie and candy but who's quibbling?

I got this recipe on All Recipes where I almost always go as they are rated, reviewed and you can change the quantity if you want plus they have nutritional information which, in this case, you  may not want to look at.
Here's the recipe:

I used my big cookie sheet and I covered it in foil and then put parchment paper on top of that for non-stick and easy cleanup and it was.
I just noticed the amount it makes.....35....thank goodness I shared some of those calories with my friends yesterday!  Whew!


  1. Who would have thought to use saltines in a dessert? Sounds like the ingredients basket on the TV show Chopped! It makes my teeth hurt just looking at it but I bet it tastes fabulous.

  2. Ohhhh, these are so good. I saw Paula Dean make them one time, tried that recipe and -soooo good! I love salt and sweet together! I can't make these often, hard to stop eating them :)

  3. My mother made a similar snack while I was growing up. We lined the pans with graham crackers.
