Saltine Toffee Bars

I wanted to make something for a potluck that I was going to and my friend asked me to bring a dessert. I recently had these for the first time a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. Just be forewarned, that you will not be able to just eat one…trust me…I know! Oh…I forgot to mention…these are definitely not on your diet! Enjoy!


Ingredients

  • 40-50 saltine crackers- depends on how big your cookie sheet is
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 bag chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed nuts (you can use almonds, pecans, walnuts or even heath bits)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Place the saltine crackers evenly on the cookie sheet.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add brown sugar. Whisk the butter and sugar until it is combined and boiling. Simmer for a few minutes, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened.

Pour the caramel mixture over the crackers in an even layer. Bake for 6 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly on top of the caramel covered crackers. Return the pan to the oven for 2 minutes, to soften the chips.

Remove the pan from the over and using a spatula smooth the chocolate until it evenly covers the caramel. Sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate right away, to ensure that the nuts stick to the chocolate. Pop in the fridge for 10 minutes to completely cool the bars.

Once hardened, break the toffee into pieces and store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
