Spray a backing tray and line it with baking paper. Lay down salada’s to cover the base of the baking tray. 


In a saucepan, add the brown sugar and butter and melt it down for at least 30 seconds, making a caramel texture.


Pour and spread the brown sugar and butter mix over the salada’s. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 5 minutes or until it starts to bubble.


Use a bowl of hot water to melt your chocolate block… lay the block of chocolate in a bowl of hot water while still in it’s packaging and wait until it’s completely melted.


After you take the tray out of the oven, let it cool and wait for the caramelised top to harden. Then, cut open the corner of the melted chocolate block and pour and spread it evenly over the salada and caramel base. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt, or whatever you are topping your Christmas Crack with.


Place the tray in the fridge to harden. This will take an hour to two hours.


Crack it apart and enjoy!
