Kraft Recipe For Joy – Crunch “Bars”

Recipe number three in the big Kraft Recipe for Joy collection was, by choice, another sweet. It looks like I’ll be getting all my holiday baking down with Kraft at this point, which really isn’t a bad thing so far! If the other recipes scared you for some reason, then this one is for you. In fact, you only need an oven, pot, knife and sheet pan for this to come together. Lay the crackers, apply topping, bake, add chocolate, melt, sprinkle nuts. Wow, easy right? The best part. They were delicious. The salty cracker and semi sweet chocolate paired together in a well known, and tasty combination, while the nuts just add another level of Christmas goodness. Gotta remember those healthy fats! Even kids could prepare this recipe in under a half hour. It would be like home economics class from back in the day, because really, what parent doesn’t like treats brought home. Wait, did I just say your kids should play with the stove…scratch that. Go make these yourself. It’s easy, I promise.

Crunch Bars
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
35 Premium Plus Crackers
1 pkg. (8 squares) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup walnut pieces, toasted, finely chopped

Heat oven to 400°F.

Cook butter and sugar in saucepan on medium-high heat 5 min. or until butter is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring occasionally. Bring to boil; cook 3 min. without stirring. Meanwhile, arrange crackers in single layer in foil-lined 17×11-1/2×3/4-inch pan.

Spread sugar mixture onto crackers.

Bake 7 min. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate. Let stand 5 min. or until chocolate is melted; spread to cover crackers. Top with nuts; cool completely. Break into pieces.

  1. If the neighbour kids are using a machete to make an ice/snow tunnel in our collective front yards — somehow I think a stove top might be safer. 🙂 These look yummy! When you mentioned crunch bars I was wondering if the saltine crackers paired with sugar/nuts/chocolates would make an appearance. Christmas classic! Just might have to get my bake on today!
