Just for scientifical purposes, I tried a batch with those Ritz Pretzel crackers (ritz on inside, pretzel on outside).

It's wonderful.

Better than the two pans made with saltines. (Not that it stopped us from eating, mind you.)

We haven't managed to give any away yet, though I am going to try hard to get some out the door today, I promise.

SkyyAngel...noted, I'll never use Country Crock, thanks!

Jennie, I was reading this post this morning and thinking how delicious this sounded. Now I've just received my package in the Yule Swap, and there's a tub of Christmas Crack! Cheesy It's every bit as good as I'd imagined!

Thanks for sharing this, and Merry Christmas!

I failed to mention, earlier this year when I was working for the Census I got about a hundred people hooked on this stuff! I made several batches and took it to the local office, which was a bustling 24-hour operation, and sometimes I'd just put it in a bowl on the lunch-table, or I'd walk around with it in a big plastic bag asking people, "Would you like to sample some crack? [and if they looked at me quizzically--]Try it, and you'll understand." Most people were pretty excited, but a few were so paranoid that I might have laced the chocolate with real crack that they never tried it .   Roll EyesTongue  I quickly became known as The Crack Lady to people who didn't even know my name!  Cheesy And I was told that in my absence people kept talking about "that chocolate crack" and "When's that Crack Lady coming back in?" Naturally this caused some concern when representatives from higher-up offices came to visit, but they too were converted.
I printed out a bunch of papers with the link to this thread and tacked them up on the wall; they were all gone within a few days.  Smiley So on behalf of all these people, I congratulate you on helping me turn so many government employees into "crackheads".  Grin

I made these today, and they are YUMMY. I was pretty skeptical at first, because we don't have saltines here in Ireland so I substituted with TUC cracker/biscuit things, but they were delicious! I've packaged them to give as gifts! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made this on Christmas day, but substituted those flat pretzel crisps for the saltines. Sooooo yummy! The directions here were perfect. Easy to understand. Easy to make. Thanks for sharing!

I made this for my kid's Christmas party in school.  They were a hit.  It was so easy to make.  I will make more to share to my office mates as a new year treat.  Thanks! Cheesy
