Recipe Card: Toffee Crackers

Out of all the cookies and candies I made and came across this holiday season, these have to be my ultimate favorite. My mom used to make them every year and when she let me know she wasn't going to have time to make any cookies, I knew I needed to have my own batch to share with friends and family. Super simple, oddly delicious. Here we go!

Toffee Crackers

Makes a cookie sheet full.

A sleeve and a half of salted saltine crackers

1c butter

1c brown sugar

2c milk chocolate chips (you can use semi-sweet too!)

Preheat over to 400. Line a cookie sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.

Line the sheet with crackers. Use whole crackers until you can't fit anymore, then break them in half to fill the rest of the sheet. I try to make mine pretty neat, but I'm also a bit anal of things like this. Haha.

In a small pot, combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil. Continue cooking for another 3-4 mintues or until a dark caramel color. Pour mixture over crackers and try to spread it out over all the crackers. Doesn't have to be perfect, once you put it in the oven it will continue to spread and coat.

Bake for 4-5 minutes. 

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute or two, then pour over hot cracker/sugar mixture. Spread to cover. Cool completely then break into pieces. Store in a sealed container.

I need to make these more often. Enjoy!
