Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cover a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper (make sure the parchment is covering up the sides).
Cover sheet pan with 48 (or more) saltine crackers.
Melt the unsalted butter and packed, dark brown sugar in a medium sauce pan. Boil for 5 minutes or until it is mixed and bubbly. Stir with a whisk or wooden spoon.
Pour carefully over the arranged Saltines.
Place sheet pan in the preheated oven for 4-5 minutes, the butter-sugar mixture should be bubbly when you take it out.
Take the sheet pan out and sprinkle the white chocolate chip morsels, after a few minutes, using an offset spatula spread the chocolate evenly.
Optionally, you can mix 1-2 drops of food coloring with the melted white chocolate and spread it to get a pastel effect. As another option for adding color, you can try using the same amount candy melts as well if you prefer.
Cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight to allow it to set. Take out and you can break it apart with your hands or use a sharp knife to cut. Package to give for gift-giving and enjoy!
