Cooking with Kelly: Saltine Cracker Toffee Recipe

Today, I had another awesome party for my Burr Ridge - Hinsdale - Oak Brook Lions Club. This was our annual holiday party where we make the bulk of the cash we re-invest in the community. It. was. epic. I might have gained 10 pounds today. Worth it.

So in addition to my microwave salted caramels, I also made saltine cracker toffee. This recipe takes about 30 minutes start to finish and turns out great. There's the salty cracker, the crunchy toffee and the creamy chocolate, so you get the best of all worlds.

Saltine Cracker Toffee Recipe
1 sleeve of saltine crackers (enough to line a jelly roll pan)
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
2 cups chocolate (I used semi sweet, but that's your call)1 cup packed brown sugar
Sprinkles, nuts or white chocolate for decoration,

Line a jelly roll pan (any large, flat pan with an edge works) with the saltines. Combine the butter and sugar in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat until the butter is melted, the increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil for three minutes. Immediately remove from the heat and pour over the crackers, using a spatula to even out the layer.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until the toffee layer bubbles.
If you're using chocolate chips, sprinkle over the top and allow to melt. You can also microwave the chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth, then pour over toffee.
Add decorative items, if desired. I chopped up some white chocolate and sprinkled over the top. Allow to cool, then break into pieces and store in an air-tight container.

I saw a similar recipe to this and printed it awhile ago! I am not sure if it had brown sugar in it. I still kind of want to give it a try :)
