Saltine Cracker Candy

Use the Flexipat for this one.  I like using the Grande Flexipat (fits on the Large Perforated Baking Sheet) so that I can make a lot at once!

1.5 packages of Saltine Crackers
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
Nuts of choice

Place Flexipat on Perforated Baking Sheet.  Line Flexipat with saltine crackers.  In a saucepan, bring the sugar and butter to a full boil for 3 min. (Use our stainless pans and heat resistant spatula for ease of use!)

Pour evenly over the saltine crackers and sprinkle with nuts.

Bake at 325 for approx. 10 min.

Remove and let cool completely before removing from pan.  Store in an airtight container.

Gently fold in cranberries and walnuts.  Spoon into large-loaf tray, or your preferred mold/tray.  Bake at 325ºF for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool completely on wire rack.

Peanut Butter Balls or Buckeyes

2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 lb pkg powdered sugar
2 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a mixer, mix first 3 ingredients together, then gradually add powdered sugar. (You may
have to mix by hand towards the end.) Melt chocolate. Drop into Petit Four tray, about 1/
3 full. Roll peanut butter mixture into balls and press into chocolate lined molds. Gently
tap tray to allow chocolate to settle around peanut butter.

[You can also stick a toothpick into each ball and dip into melted chocolate leaving a little
peanut butter showing around the toothpick and allow to set on Roul’pat or Silpat.]
