This easy recipe contains crackers, sugar, butter, and almonds. Easy enough, right? And don’t even get my started on how insanely delicious it is. It is a go-to recipe for any last minute party dishes.
I dub this recipe the most addictive recipe out there. My mom made a batch for a party once and mistakenly left the batch out on the counter for a solid hour. I
accidentally ate nearly half of it.
I need to explain the situation, so you can full appreciate what a feat this was. I was upstairs. The crackers were downstairs. I was as snug as a bug in a rug watching Sons of Anarchy all day. Nothing, I repeat nothing, pulls my away from Sons of Anarchy. These crackers accomplished just that. I kept repeatedly retreating to the kitchen for just one more handful. Cue to my fifth trip down there, mumbling, “I can’t stop!” Such power for such a tiny cracker.
It’s so delectable in fact, we’ve begun calling it “crack in a bowl”. I mentioned this recipe in my first post. It’s about the only dish my mother brings to parties anymore because it’s an easy recipe and a hit on top of that.
I don’t know what it is, man. The salty mixture meeting the sweet, caramelized sugar? The almonds providing a little extra crunch? Either way you slice it, the way the flavors come together, creating an inconceivable explosion of flavors.
An added bonus to this recipe: It’s one of the easiest recipes out there. It consists of melting, mixing, pouring, and stirring. Hence, why it’s my mother’s go to recipe. But, hey, it’s not like I’m complaining. I will devour those bad boys any time she makes them.
