    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This makes a wonderful treat to serve at the holidays or to bring as a gift. I use the non-stick foil for this but a piece of buttered parchment paper lined in the pan will work fine also --- servings is only estimated, really it should be only one serving I could eat the whole thing myself, these are very addicting :)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (10 ounce) package saltine crackers (make certain that you use the salted crackers and do not break)
    • 1 1/2 cups butter (preferably butter, margaine is not as good!)
    • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
    • 1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips (can use semi-sweet)
    • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, finely chopped (or use almonds)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Set oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Line a 10 x 15-inch baking sheet with non-stick foil (or use parchment paper).
    3. 3
      Place each cracker in a single layer in the baking sheet (add on more if needed to cover the sheet).
    4. 4
      In a medium saucepan bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil over medium heat.
    5. 5
      When the mixture comes to a FULL boil, boil for 3 minutes (set timer for 3 minutes after mixture reaches a full boil) you may reduce the heat so that the mixture does not boil over the saucepan.
    6. 6
      Mix in vanilla (if using) then immediately pour the hot mixture over the top of the crackers.
    7. 7
      Bake in a 400°F oven for 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crackers, then spread using a back of a spoon to smooth out and cover.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle the nuts evenly over the top.
    10. 10
      Place in the refrigerator for about 3-4 hours or until set.

      This candy is amazing and oh-so-easy. I'm sure you've heard of all the better-than-you-know-what cake recipes...this tops all any of them for a sweet treat. I leave the nuts off of 1/2 the pan because the kids don't like them.

      Wow!!! Of all the candy I made this year, this was the big favorite. It is so good.....the saltine turns into a crunchy pastry-like base for the candy. I was surprised at how good it was, and how much people loved it. It was so easy too!! I couldn't get as many saltines on the pan as the recipe called for, but no matter. The nonstick foil was a great suggestion too....not sure how things would have gone without it. Makes alot of candy too. Great recipe!!!

      Yum. So easy, I even used whole wheat saltines and they are so very good. I sprinkled some coconut on top of the toffee layer, then the chocolate chips. I wish I would have had the milk chocolate chips, but I used semi-sweet ones, still great! It took only 10 minutes to make, the hardest part was letting them cool ;)
