Ok, so technically this candy has so many names, but for Talk Like A Pirate Day, we called it Pirate Candy. Papa Frog often makes hard tack, but this was a fun and yummy mock hard tack treat for the Froglets.
To make your own Pirate Candy you will need:
1 1/2 sleeves of soda crackers
1 c. butter (use the real stuff)
1 c. light brown sugar
1 bag of dark chocolate chips.
Line a large sheet tray with aluminum foil. Lay the soda crackers in a single layer, taking care to fill in the cracks the best you can.
In a saucepan, add sugar and butter and cook over med-hi heat, stirring constantly until the sugar and butter melt and begin to carmelize.
Pour caramel mixture over the crackers and slide your sheet pan into a preheated (400 degree) oven for 5 minutes. Remove, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the hot caramel-y crackers. At this point you can either spread them with a silicone paddle or you can just leave them as mostly whole chips.
Pop your sheet tray in the freezer for 10 minutes, break into pieces and let your wee Pirate Froglets devour. Warning: These are incredibly tasty and prone to disappearance!
