Renee's Jo Jo Treats

My coworker Renee makes these for every work party. Someone finally convinced her to give us girls the recipe and now I make them for parties and holidays- everyone loves them and they are so easy to make!

-1 box saltine crackers
-2 sticks of butter
-1 and a half 12 ounce bags of semi sweet chocolate morsels
-1 and 1/4 cups light brown sugar
-Assorted toppings such as: slivered almonds, crushed candy candys, grated coconut and marshmallows

-Preheat over to 400 degrees
-Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
-Over foil line cookie sheet with crackers in a row to fill entire cookie sheet - never overlap crackers

When crackers are arranged like this you are ready for the next step

-Cut up the 2 sticks of butter and melt slowly in a pan over low heat
-When butter is completely melted add brown sugar and bring to a boil
-Stir or whisk sugar and butter mixture exactly 5 minutes while boiling
-Spoon mixture over crackers - make sure mixture is covering all crackers
-Bake in the oven for 5 minutes
-After the 5 minutes are up take out of oven and evenly distribute chocolate morsels over cookie crackers
-Place back in the oven for another 5 minutes
-When 5 minutes are up take out of oven and spread chocolate over crackers with a knife or spoon
-While chocolate is hot sprinkle toppings of your choice on top
-Refrigerate for at least one hour then take out and peel off of foil and break into pieces (like brittle) the pieces should be different sizes

When you peel the jo-jo treats off of the foil the bottom should be coated with butter and sugar mixture.

I couldnt decide what kind of jo-jo treats I wanted to make so I just made every combination I could think of!

The peppermint one's are my favorite - yum!
