Toffee Saltines AKA "Christmas Crack"  from Table for Seven

When I first came across this recipe from A Southern Grace on Pinterest, it puzzled me. Saltines and chocolate and toffee?  But, there simplicity of the recipe drew me in.  OK, more the chocolate and toffee, but, how simple they were to make definitely had an impact on my decision.  

We gave these a whirl just yesterday.  They are fabulous and extremely addicting. As I type, running downstairs to snatch one out of the freezer keeps sounding better and better( oh and it's only 8am here).

Give these a will not.  I repeat...will not, regret it.

Prep Time: 00:15
Cook Time: 00:08
Ingredients (Serves: 10-12)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter ( no margarine)
  • 40 saltine crackers
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray, then, cover with foil. Then, spray the foil with non stick cooking spray.
Spread saltines on cookie sheet, creating a flat layer.
In a saucepan, melt brown sugar and butter. Stirring frequently. Bring to a boil, then, lower heat and simmer for approx 5 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Once mixture is thick, pour over saltines. Spread evenly to cover then.
Bake for 5-8 minutes or until toffee becomes bubbly.
Remove and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and let them melt a bit. Spread chocolate evenly over crackers/toffee.
Let cool or put in the fridge for about an hour to harden.
It is pretty easy to just break apart piece instead of attempting to cut them.
Leftovers can be frozen.
