  • 1 sleeve saltines
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 bags chocolate ships
  • 1/2 cup peppermints, whole


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Put peppermints into a zippered bag, crush with rolling pin.
  • Line baking pan with aluminum foil.
  • Arrange the saltines (salt-side down) in a single layer on the tray.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together and boil until it turns a caramel color, a few minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, covering them evenly.
  • Put the jelly-roll pan into the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just bubbly, watching carefully.
  • Remove from the oven and pour the chocolate chips over the crackers.
  • When the chips melt a bit, spread them over the crackers with a knife.
  • Sprinkle peppermint topping
  • Transfer the pan to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. This will form one big sheet.
  • Break up into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
