4 Ingredient Christmas Crack

4 Ingredient Christmas Crack pinit

Not one person can turn down this 4 Ingredient Christmas Crack! I mean what’s not to love? Sweet, salty and crunchy. You know I love to hear that crunch! They don’t call me the crunch queen for nothing!

I have to give you all a warning – this is highly addictive. So be careful and make at your own risk.

I am seriously trying to wrap my head around how Christmas is in a week. This Christmas Crack is going to save your life if you’re trying to think of a quick and easy recipe. Additionally, it only has 4 ingredients! I bet you have most of them in your kitchen cabinet right now.

While it’s great to bring to a potluck, it’s also great to add to your family’s Christmas presents. Just wrap it in cellophane bags with a cute bow or a little tin. People always love something homemade and made with love!

You can prep this beforehand and store it in an airtight container at room temperature for 5-6 days or in the fridge for 10! Believe me, this stuff will be gone in a blink of an eye.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Saltine Crackers
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Chocolate Chips

Optional items:

For my Christmas Crack I decided to use red and green sprinkles with walnuts. For that extra crunch and tiny bit of flavor from the nuts.

How to cut:

This is meant to be cut funky! I like to just start breaking up random pieces and shapes.

If you’re counting your macros, I would cut it up evenly into 24 pieces.
