If there is one thing I love about going home, it's all the yummy treats my mom makes as a welcome back gift. A few weeks ago, I arrived home for break and my mom had a whole batch of this Cracker Bark waiting for me in the kitchen. I hadn't had it in years, but as soon as I tried it, I couldn't stop sneaking back into the kitchen to get more the whole weekend! The best part about this recipe is that it is super easy and only uses four ingredients. It's the perfect mix of sweet and salty to satisfy all your cravings.

One great thing about this recipe is that you have room for creativity. If sprinkles aren't your thing, there are endless other toppings you can choose. Some other ideas are chopped nuts, marshmallows, crushed Oreos, or if you're feeling festive, crushed peppermints would make a great holiday bark. If you aren't a fan of dark chocolate, you can also use milk, semi-sweet, or even white chocolate chips. No matter what toppings or chocolate you decide to use, the crackers combined with the brown sugar and butter will make anyone crazy for this sweet and salty bark.
