Soda Cracker Toffee


Here is a  favorite treat that I like to make and share during the holidays. It's easy to make and is sort of a cross between a cookie and candy. If you've never tried it, it tastes a bit  like caramel and chocolate dipped pretzels - you know, crunchy, sweet and salty all at once!


It just takes a few ingredients, butter, brown sugar, saltine crackers, chocolate chips and nuts.
 Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with foil. Lay out 48 crackers into the sheet.

 Combine 3 sticks of butter and 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar in a large saucepan. Melt over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes.

 Pour the caramel mixture over the crackers and spread evenly. Place into a 375 degree oven and bake for 5 minutes. It will bubble.

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips. 

Let the chips sit for a couple of minutes until they have melted and then spread evenly over the crackers. 

 Now sprinkle with 1 cup of chopped nuts. I use either walnuts or pecans.
Cool completely! This will take a couple of hours in the fridge or over night at room temperature. Then break into pieces. This will make 48 pieces if you break along the cracker lines.

 Here it is bagged up and ready to give as a thank you treat to the members of my church choir.

Enjoy!

  2. I do this with graham crackers, and it is one of my favorite things. I just made toffee for the first time, and I don't think it's one bit better than that made with crackers and the latter is a whole lot easier.
