  • 1 package (11 ounces) caramels, unwrapped (I used the caramel bits that don't need unwrapping!)
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1-1/2 sleeves saltine crackers (about 58 crackers) coarsely broken
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped, roasted, lightly salted almonds, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract


  • Ideal slow cooker size: 2-Quart.
  • Place the unwrapped caramels and butter in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 2 to 3 hours, until melted, stirring every 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Lightly coat a 13 x 9-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the broken crackers, white chocolate chips, marshmallows, cranberries and half of the chopped almonds. Set aside.
  • When the caramels are melted and the mixture is well blended, stir in the almond extract. Pour the warm caramel mixture over the cracker mixture and toss to coat well.
  • Working quickly, press the mixture into the prepared pan, pressing down with a square of wax paper.
  • Sprinkle evenly with the reserved chopped almonds, pressing them down gently.
  • Cover and refrigerate until completely, cooled, about 30 minutes.
  • Cut into 36 bars.
  • Store in covered containers between layers of wax paper.
