I had an aunt that brought this to a Christmas gathering, and I couldn't get enough of it. She gave me the recipe, and I was surprised to find saltine crackers as the main ingredient! I think toffee is my weakness..
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 36 saltine crackers
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- In a small saucepan, over med-high heat, blend butter and brown sugar.
- Heat to boiling and boil 4 minutes (exactly 4 minutes).
- Cover a cookie sheet with foil, and butter lightly.
- Place a single layer of saltines on the foil touching but not overlapping.
- Pour the butter mixture over crackers, spreading evenly.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes.
- Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the hot crackers.
- Allow to soften, then spread evenly over crackers.
- Sprinkle with nuts.
- Refrigerate until cool.
- Break into pieces and serve.
I've never heard of using saltine crackers to make toffee and was a bit skeptical. I couldn't believe how easy this toffee was to make, and SO yummy. I made two batches, my crackers weren't salted so I sprinkled a little on the crackers of the second batch and it really improved the flavor. I also couldn't believe how the chocolate just melted and all I had to do was spread it out with a knife. Although, I have to say it's pretty obvious a saltine cracker is the main ingredient. I will make these again and again! Thanks for the recipe!
