Saltine cracker toffee (easy!)



Ok, so I have been so so busy and of course no time for any crafting goodness but I did make a new recipe...oatmeal bars. They were gross! I pretty much was mad I wasted the chocolate chips so I just picked them all out and that made me feel better!

So since that was a failure I thought I would share my most popular holiday recipe! The best part was it was so so easy! It almost felt like a scam. But how could you go wrong with a rich salty sweet snack that is so easy to love and even easier to make!


Ingredients
  • 4 oz (one sleeve) saltine crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups sliced almonds (or another nut, if you prefer)

Directions


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  1. Spread almonds evenly on a cookie sheet and toast in oven until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Line a second cookie sheet with aluminum foil and arrange crackers in a single layer on the sheet.
  3. In a large saucepan heat butter and brown sugar over medium heat and boil for 3 minutes.  Pour over the saltines and spread evenly.  Bake for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Using a rubber spatula, spread chocolate chips evenly and sprinkle with almonds (or desired topping).
  5. Cool completely, remove foil (can be tricky) and break in to pieces.  Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
