YUM!! I am definitely going to make this! We don’t have Saltines here in NZ but we have Salada crackers which look the same. Can’t wait to try :-)

Oh I love this recipe!!! Have used a similar one for years with milk chocolate chips, because they melt really well and slivered almonds, mmmm.

I tried to come by and tell you how delicious these looked the other day but wouldn’t you know my laptop was having issues! Anyhoo I think these look absolutely amazing and the amount of sweets we consume over Christmas you can bet we’ll give these a try!

Wow saltines, that is a pretty clever base. I like that idea. Would you prefer saltines over graham crackers or even additional chocolate as the base?
