Recipe by mandabears

These taste just like a heath/skor bar with a pastry base. No one will ever quess that you used Club crackers.

These are really good! They are very similar to the traditional English Toffee candy that I have been making for years, but don't require a candy thermometer. I have made them twice in the last week, the first time using semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts, the second time with part milk chocolate (ran out of semisweet!) and pecans. I discovered I prefer the original recipe! Also, be sure to boil the brown sugar/butter mix for at least the full 3 minutes (I think you could safely go for another minute or even two), or the final product will be less crisp and not quite as good. All in all, a wonderfully rich and easy treat that would make a good gift! Oh, yeah...to make it even easier, the club crackers fit perfectly in a jellyroll pan!
