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.
Pure happiness! Thanks for letting me make your recipe, sweet Koralee!
