Top Review by Janet Arango

Fabulous & Simple Recipe !!! My entire office of 30 employees absolutely loved this treat. I whipped it up last night, extremely quick and easy and it looked beautiful with the broken pieces arranged on a large platter. Of course everyone raved and wanted to know what the ingredients were. I passed the recipe around and introduced my office to recipezaar. Removing the slab of Toffee Candy from the cookie tray was VERY EASY. I just allowed the tray to cool to the touch, then I slipped the tray into the freezer until the toffee was cold enough to completely loosen when I twisted the tray slightly (approx. 10 or 15 min.), then I slipped the slab of cold candy out with a fork. It all came out in one large piece. I didn’t grease the tray at all and removal was still a snap. Tip: Do not leave the tray in the freezer for an extended time or condensation will built up and dampen the candy. Next time I am going to use graham crackers rather than saltines, I’ve heard this is excellent as well.
