Saltine cracker toffee

Ever since I made firecrackers, I’ve been looking for another recipe that I can make with saltine crackers.  I found this recipe on Pinterest that looked really good.  Anything with toffee and chocolate has to be good, right!?  Tomorrow is our pot luck end of the school year party, so I figured this is a good a time as any to try and make this recipe that was pinned from The Girl Who Ate Everything blog.


40 salted saltine crackers…or as many that cover your pan
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips (I used the semi sweet)
(optional) 3/4 cup chopped pecans…since I’m making this for potluck, I didn’t use the pecans.  You never know who is allergic.

Line up the crackers on a pan covered in foil or parchment paper

Mix the butter and brown sugar and bring to a boil.

After comes to a boil, let it boil for 3 more minutes.

Pour the mixture over the crackers and spread it as evenly as possible.

Bake at 400 degrees for 5 – 6 minutes.  It will get bubbly.

Right when you take it out of the oven, put the chocolate chips on the mixture and let it begin to melt.

Spread the melted chocolate as evenly as you can over the saltine cracker/toffee mixture.

Let it all cool down completely and then break in to pieces.

These are really good.  The chocolate kind of overpowers the toffee though.  I think I used more than 2 cups of chips, so you may not want to use as much as I did.  I also put them in the fridge to cool them down.  I was in a hurry to try them!!

    You still owe me some fire crackers, but I’ll settle for these with pecans.
