Carol's Soda Cracker Toffee!
Honestly, I get mad at Carol whenever she makes this because it's one of those "can't stop eating it until it's gone" type recipes! I prefer this to real toffee because you don't need dental work after you eat it. It's quick and easy to make and honestly, it's to die for!
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place one sleeve of saltine crackers, plus a few more to cover the entire bottom of the pan. *Do not crumble the crackers, place them whole.
In a pan, melt 1 cup (2 sticks) butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Once it's melted, stir for three minutes. Pour the sauce over the crackers. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven. Pour one package of chocolate chips (Carol uses half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate chips) over the baked layers. Wait 30 seconds. Spread the chocolate to cover the pan. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Place in the refrigerator for one hour. Remove and then break into bite-size pieces. Store in a sealed container, "If it lasts that long!", says Carol, when she gave me the recipe! Enjoy!
Note: Carol also uses Andes Mints Peppermint or Mint Chocolate Chips or Toffee Bits in place of the chocolate chips.
