Saltine Toffee Recipe

Saltine toffee, also known as Christmas crack or cracker toffee, is a sweet and addictive treat that's easy to make. Here's a simple recipe:

Ingredients: – 1 sleeve of saltine crackers (about 40-50 crackers) – 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter – 1 cup packed brown sugar – 2 cups semisweet chocolate chip – 1 cup chopped nuts (optional, such as pecans or almonds)

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper, and arrange the saltine crackers in a single layer on the sheet, making sure they fit snugly together.

1. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil for about 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until it thickens into a caramel-like consistency. 2. Once the caramel mixture is ready, carefully pour it over the saltine crackers, spreading it evenly with a spatula to cover all the crackers completely.

1. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the toffee layer is bubbling and caramelized. 2. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the hot toffee layer. Let them sit for a few minutes to soften and melt.

1. Use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate chips evenly over the toffee layer, creating a smooth chocolate coating. 2. If using chopped nuts, sprinkle them over the melted chocolate layer while it's still warm, pressing them gently into the chocolate.

Allow the toffee to cool completely at room temperature, then transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour, or until the toffee is firm and set. 

1. Once the toffee has hardened, use your hands or a knife to break it into small pieces or shards. 2. Store the saltine toffee in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for longer storage.
