Chocolate Saltine Toffee

I received some AWESOME candy this year and I knew that I wanted the recipe.  I have tried numerous times to make English Toffee and end up wasting 12 lbs of butter and an equal amount of sugar and almonds every year!  I decided that I needed to throw that recipe away and this recipe took its place!  It is so simple that even my kids were able to help out.DSC04173


1 Cup Butter

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1  1/2 Sleeves Saltine Cracker

1 Bag Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chip

Nuts for dusting the top (optional)

Directions:  Pre heat oven @ 350 degrees.  Line 15-in X 10-in x 1-in baking sheet with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.  Place crackers in rows on foil.  In a saucepan, melt butter; add the brown sugar and bring to a boil for about 1 minute.  Pour mixture over crackers and spread until completely covered.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (crackers may float). DSC04177

Remove from oven.  Sprinkle chocolate chips over crackers, wait a few minutes until melted and then spread evenly over crackers. DSC04204

Cool completely and then crack into small pieces! ENJOY!  DSC04206
