Its not Christmas Time unless...

Everyone has their favorite Christmas candy or dish, right? Something that your holiday season is incomplete without. Mine is Cracker Toffee. I made some today, and felt like sharing. You may thing its a little strange based on the recipe, but trust me, it is delicious (after all, whats not good about butter, sugar and chocolate?).

Cracker Toffee
  • Saltine Crackers
  • 1 cup butter (no margerine allowed!)
  • 1 cup brown suger
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350* F. Place the saltines side-by-side on a jelly roll pan (thats a cookie sheet with sides!) covering the entire pan.
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan, melt butter and sugar together. Boil together 3 minutes (time starts when it starts to get frothy). Pour mixture over the soda crackers and spread out as necessary.
  3. Bake in oven for 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over baked toffee-cracker mixture. Allow to soften thouroughly, then spread chocolate over the entire pan of candy. Sprinkle with chopped nuts (I use walnust) if desired. Chill in the fridge until chocolate had hardened up again.

Seriously... SO good!
