Pine Bark

Mom, Food Network

Made this sweet and salty treat in preparation for company coming this past weekend.

35 Saltine crackers
1 C butter
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 t almond extract
20 oz. total milk chocolate bars, broken into pieces (Gordie likes to make it with dark chocolate)

Preheat oven to 400.

Line a jelly roll pan with tin foil. Lightly spray foil with cooking spray.

Place Saltines salty side up in pan. Sprinkle with a little additional salt if desired. In a saucepan, boil butter and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract. Pour mixture over crackers and bake for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven, top with candy bars, and spread evenly as chocolate begins to melt (you may need to stick it back in the oven for just a minute with the chocolate on it for the chocolate to soften enough). Cool slightly and transfer to waxed paper. Allow to cool completely, then break apart. Store in the fridge.
