  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Chill:
    Place the pan in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 2 hours or until the chocolate crackle has set.
  • Cut into Squares:
    Once set, remove the chocolate crackle from the pan and place it on a cutting board. Use a knife to cut it into squares.
  • Serve and Enjoy:
    Serve the delicious chocolate crackle squares and enjoy this simple and delightful treat!
