Molly Riehl makes candy and the 'good stuff' for the holidays

 

For her edition of "My Favorite Dish," MORE's Molly Riehl cooked up two sweet treats.

Molly got some help in the kitchen with her mom and dad to make some dishes, not from the Riehl family but from the Flaherty family.

The recipes, which are listed below, are from Molly's fiancé's mother.

Christmas Candy:

40 saltine crackers (about 1.5 sleeves)2 sticks butter1 cup packed brown sugar1 package (12 ounces) chocolate chips1 cup chopped walnutsGrease a jelly roll pan. Arrange the crackers in rows in pan. Preheat oven to 400. Melt butter, add brown sugar. Bring to a boil and boil exactly 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over crackers. Bake 3.5 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn off oven. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Return to oven for a few minutes to melt chocolate chips. Spread chocolate so it is sort of like frosting. While chocolate is still warm, sprinkle with chopped nuts. Freeze and then break into pieces.

The "Good Stuff."
