’tis the season for saltine cracker toffee! My family has been making this every holiday season since before I can remember. It’s always a hit and it’s so, so simple to make!
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 bag dark chocolate chips
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil, and then line saltine crackers over the entire cookie sheet. Melt butter and brown sugar together over medium heat and stir until it boils. Let boil for 3 minutes, and then pour mixture over the saltine crackers. Bake for 5 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes and then pour chocolate chips over the crackers and toffee. Let sit for a minute or so, and then start spreading the chocolate lightly with the back of a spoon. The chocolate should start to melt and become easy to spread. Once chocolate is spread smoothly, top with sea salt (and/or crushed peppermint candies – anything goes here!). Cool in refrigerator for about 2 hours. Once hardened, peel off the tin foil from the bottom and cut into pieces. I recommend keeping these in the freezer until you are going to serve them.
