  • 48 saltine crackers
  • 1 cup (2 sticks / 227 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (200 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ½ cups (273 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the crackers, salted side down in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the butter and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow the mixture to boil for 3-5 minutes, or until the butter is completely melted and the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Carefully pour the mixture over the crackers.
  • Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until the butter and sugar mixture begins to bubble.
  • Carefully remove the pan from the oven. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the crackers. Allow the chocolate chips to sit for about one minute, or until they start to soften and melt.
  • Using an offset spatula, spread the melted chocolate over the crackers.
  • Immediately add sprinkles, if using.
  • Transfer the pan to the refrigerator for about an hour, or until set. If you need it set a little quicker, you can place the pan in the freezer.
  • To serve, break the New Year's Eve crack into smaller pieces.
