Crack(er) Toffee

This easy and slightly trashy recipe uses club or saltine crackers to make a treat that’s sweet, salty, crunchy, and chocolatey. You can make it more gourmet by adding chopped nuts or dried fruit to the top, or adding swirls of white chocolate.IMG_7254

What to buy:

  • 1-2 sleeves of club or saltine crackers (I used club in the pictures)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

What to do:

  • preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • arrange the crackers in a single layer on the baking sheet so that there are no empty spaces in between them
  • place the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat
  • stir while the butter melts, and bring the mixture to a rolling boil
  • once boiling, carefully pour the sugar-butter mixture over the crackers on the baking sheet in an even layer, trying to cover most of the crackers (if you miss some spots, don’t worry as it will spread in the oven)
  • bake the sugared crackers at 350 degrees for five minutes, until the sugar is bubbling
  • remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool for one minute
  • sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the hot sugar, and allow them to sit for one minute to soften and melt
  • once softened, use a knife to spread the chocolate over the cracker
  • refrigerate the pan to set the toffee and chocolate for about 30 minute
  • break into small uneven pieces and serve alone or over ice cream (I like to keep leftover tofee  in the freezer)
