It's been 3 weeks since my surgery. I'm supposed to stay off my feet but cabin fever has set in big time. My garden has been ignored for the most part, but the perennials are doing their job. My youngest son has a friend over to play and I find myself with a craving for something sweet.
I remember these homemade skor bars one of the choir moms made for a Christmas party.... Perfect. They are simple, quick and delicious. It makes a big batch so I can send some home with Jack's friend. I might even make some for a little thank you gift for the crossing guards at the school.
1 sleeve salted soda crackers
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag milk chocolate chips
Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with nonstick spray. Line crackers in a single layer getting them as close together as possible.
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla. Bring to a boil and simmer until it starts to thicken...about 8 minutes.
Pour sugar mixture over prepared tray and spread evenly with an pallet knife. Place in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let sit for just a minute until it stops bubbling. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Place in the oven for just a few seconds to start the chocolate melting. Spread evenly with a pallet knife.
Cool to room temperature and break into pieces.
As a option sprinkle melted chocolate with nuts or toffee bits.
