Every party needs something sweet…..REAL sweet!  And this will do the trick!  The salt on the crisp crackers combined with the rich, semi-sweet chocolate and crunchy, buttery toffee makes for the perfect candy, any minute of any day of any month of any year.

You won’t believe it ’til you try it!

Printable Version: Saltine Toffee

Ingredients:

  • 40 saltine crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans/walnuts, if desired (I like it without)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer.

In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread t cover crackers completely.

Bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 6 minutes, or until toffee is bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts, if desired. Cool completely and break into pieces.

This is the best toffee recipe! I dont have the time to stir a pot for a long time to get toffee. I usually burn it anyway. This is a much easy recipe!

Whatever it is that you would like to name it, just make it and try it because it’s sure to become a family food tradition. I remember my mother making it, and hopefully, my children will have fond memories of us making it in the kitchen as well. Thanks a lot.

We made this over the weekend… loved it! We cut the butter in half, and never noticed a difference.

Made this recipe twice and it burnt on bottom both times and had to throw away. What am I doing wrong?

Barbara, did you line your pan with foil and spray it with Pam? If not, that could have caused the bottom to burn. Or possibly your oven cooks a little hotter than what temperature says? I am sorry you had 2 batches if this burn!Sent from my iPhone
