Cracker Toffee

This is a simple way to make toffee...and surprisingly really good! It was a fun recipe to make with my kids and we all loved it.

Cracker Toffee
  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter (two sticks)
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper ( I didn't have any so I just used foil and it worked fine).
Put the saltine crackers on the cookie sheet in a single layer, leaving some room between each cracker.
In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a full, rolling boil, then boil for 3 minutes. 
Immediately pour over saltines. Do your best to pour some on each cracker, but don't worry about covering each one completely - the candy will spread in the oven.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 7 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Put back in the oven for 2 minutes. 
Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.

Enjoy!
