Saltine cracker toffee

Need a quick dessert in a matter of minutes? Look no further.

50 saltine crackers (approx.)
2 sticks butter
1 cup soft brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 325.  Line 9x13 jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Spray foil with cooking spray and then line pan with saltine crackers.

Place butter and sugar in a medium sized pot over low medium/low heat. Stir until butter is melted. Once butter is melted, bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens. Stir constantly.

After 3 minutes, remove pan from heat and pour evenly over saltine crackers. Spread mixture with a knife... however it doesn't have to be perfect.  Place pan in oven and bake for 6-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Do not over bake. The mixture will spread evenly over the crackers as it bakes.

Remove pan from oven and then take foil off of the pan. Allow the toffee to cool and then break pieces off of foil.

According to the author at iheartnaptime you can also place 1/2 cup chocolate chips on top right when it comes out of the oven. Allow the chocolate to melt and then spread it out with a spatula. Sometimes she adds slivered almonds as well.

This was easy to make.  I’m not a huge toffee fan, when it’s hard and brittle.  But this is really tasty! They chocolate didn’t spread “pretty” because I was in a hurry and running out the door but dang, it tastes good.  Will be taking this to turkey day gathering at my brothers.  Gobble gobble.
