I wanted to make something easy, but yummy, to usher in the new year and remembered Trisha Yearwood's "Mama'a Sweet and Saltines" recipe from last year.
I planned on using graham crackers instead of saltines, but when I went to my pantry there were no graham crackers to be found:( I peeked in further and spotted some Biscoff cookies:) They would be a perfect substitute, maybe even better!
I was right!
I only had one package of cookies, so cut the recipe in half. It comes together in a snap and is dangerously delicious! I just may have had to hide it from my husband:)
What could be better!?! Biscoff cookies covered in a melted butter~brown sugar mixture(toffee-like), and a generous layer of melted choclate to top it off. Sprinkle with a colorful dose of confetti sprikles and you're ready to ring in the new year!
(Mama's Sweet and Saltines from Trisha Yearwood-adapted)
Yields: 10 servings
8.8 oz. package of Biscoff cookies (I had about 4 left over to munch on)
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup light-brown sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
multi-colored confetti sprinkles 1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and the cookies (I sectioned off half of a large jelly roll pan to accomodate only one pkg. of cookies).
2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over cookies, covering them evenly. Put cookie sheet into oven and watch closely. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until just bubbly.
3. Remove from oven and pour chocolate chips over cookies. When chips begin to melt, spread them over ccookies with a knife. Transfer pan to freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. The chocolate-covered cookies will form a solid sheet; break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
Happy New Year!!!
