Coconut Cracker Snacks

If you are craving something sweet and pressed for time these are really a fun snack to make. Super easy they are also a great recipe for kids to make. The base is saltine crackers topped with butter, brown sugar, coconut and cinnamon. They are ready in just a few minutes.  Sweet and just a little salty, too. You could use chopped nuts in place of the coconut if you prefer.

36 saltine crackers
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. brown sugar

Cover a baking sheet with foil. Place the crackers, touching, side by side in a single layer. Melt butter in microwave, then add sugar and heat together 1 minute on high. Stir butter and sugar mixture together until smooth and drizzle this over the crackers. Combine coconut and cinnamon and then sprinkle the coconut over the crackers. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes, or until coconut is toasted. Cool on baking sheet on a cooling rack. Crackers will easily break apart from each other. Makes 36.
