I adore this recipe for Saltine Caramel Hearts. Make some for your sweetie (and yourself!)
More info about the woman behind the recipe at the bottom of this post.
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup each of chocolate chips (milk, dark, white, whatever you like)
heart pan by Wilton available at Michaels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put parchment paper squares on in pan, place saltines on top
To make the caramel mixture…
Boil light brown sugar and butter for 5 minutes on stovetop stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Here's what it looks like.
Ladle the carmel mixture over the saltines.
Bake in the over for 5 minutes or until bubbly.
Example of bubbly.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let it sit for 5 minutes then use a spoon to smooth out the chocolate.
Add the crushed pistachios on top. Pop in fridge for one hour to harden. Remove from fridge and run a knife along the edges of the pan.
Enjoy! I know you will.
