For a festive seasonal twist you could sprinkle crushed candy canes in place of nuts
I know that this recipe sounds a little strange, but I promise you… it is so addicting!
It is so easy to make (simple ingredients and it only takes a couple of minutes) and it is the perfect treat for a holiday party or neighbor gift. People will not believe you when you tell them that it’s made from saltine crackers!
Saltine Cracker English Toffee
40 salted saltine crackers
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups milk chocolate chips (or mint, butterscotch flavor, white chocolate)
1 cup chopped nuts (crush candy canes, or M&M’s, sprinkles…you can use whatever kind you like)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a large cookie sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Lay the saltine crackers evenly on the pan (I put mine really close together so that they were touching).
In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Bring it to a boil and let it boil for three minutes WITHOUT STIRRING. After three minutes, pour the hot brown sugar mixture evenly over the saltine crackers.
Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips across the toffee. Let them melt for a couple of minutes and then use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly across the toffee (like frosting).
Sprinkle chopped nuts on top of the melted chocolate. Let the toffee and chocolate cool completely (I put mine in the freezer for about 20 minutes to help it set up quickly). Break the toffee into bite-size pieces.
To store, keep in an air-tight container for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for a couple of months.
