This is soooo good!!! I make it every year.. but I've never use saltines before-- I always use Breton crackers & it's so delicious!! I think I might try the saltines for a "cheaper' alternative!

Holy mackinaw! I'm so happy that this post was featured and I'm sooo happy that it's so easy to make! I made two batches today, and as soon as I can get some orange zest... uhm, zested, I'm going to make more!

Thanks jennieingram!

Anyway, pics of my Christmas crack and the variations I made are on my blog:

I was thinking about making this a little bit healthier ( ::)iknowrite?) by using a canola and palm oil spread that is usually great, sometimes better for baking.  However, it's only 70% oil, and though someone mentioned Earth Balance spread as working for this recipe, Earth Balance has a slightly higher oil content.  Has anyone had a good experience working with 70% or less vegetable oil spreads?

I made a batch yesterday and being the queen of instant gratification, used margarine instead of butter. It was all I had. Tomorrow I will be going out and getting real butter to do this with. It came out gooey and...well, kind of nasty. The kids are picking at it and insist that it's good but I think they are just being nice. Will update if the butter makes it any better. Smiley

Thanks so much for posting this Smiley
I made a batch the year your first posted this, and when I happened to come across this (being featured on the main page definitely helped!) I decided to make another Cheesy they're in the fridge hardening up now Smiley

Okay assuming I'm not from the US and "a packet" isn't a standard measure over here. How much chocolate would a "Packet of choc chips" be about? In grams?

Also does anyone know what a cream cracker is and whether it would work instead of a saltine (I don't know what those are). Otherwise I'll just use Marie biscuits, they work in most things, they're sweet though.

alexania I used really good chocolate chips and perhaps about 100g of them. I wouldn't use Marie biscuits, this works because of the contrast between sweet and salt. If you have an aldi near you, they sell a salted cracker that is very like a saltine (biggish red packet, they have three varieties, salt, wholewheat and plain..get the salted ones) failing that I would consider TUC, someone said earlier in the thread that the were too thick, but you need a salty cracker, creamcrackers are too bland, and thick
