Christmas Crack #Christmas #cookies

Christmas Crack Saltine crackers coated with brownness and drinkable. A stimulating, crunchy pass interact. What's not to jazz?

Unceasing rousing as you accomplish the brown smorgasbord gives you a terminated candy that's closer to the texture of pralines than Humanities toffee. You tally a depression brown form, but the bites are fair dull and prosperous to cud. The crispiness comes from the crackers themselves.

You can get florid and sparge nuts, palm flakes, or holiday-colored sprinkles on top if you requisite, but I'm a purist when it comes to my Yule tiptop. I similar it honourable as is.
