Saltine Toffee Bark


I first had this delightful treat when a neighbor and dear friend dropped some off with her holiday goodies a few years ago.  (We aptly named her Mary Stewart.)  She confessed to me that most of it didn't make it into the bags but instead she and her family ate it!  It truly is one of those sweets that doesn't hang around long and is hard to give away because you like it so much!

The saltiness from the saltine crackers, the chewy and deeply flavored toffee, and the semi-sweet chocolate all come together to create a handheld treat that really is just too easy to eat and enjoy.

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
~40 saltine crackers

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with foil and spray lightly with non-stick spray. Lay a flat layer of crackers out on the foil. Set aside.
2. Melt the sugar and butter until boiling and then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and sugar is completely dissolved.
3. Pour toffee mixture over the crackers and spread with an offset spatula to coat evenly. Place in preheated oven and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until the toffee becomes bubbly. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.
4. Evenly spread the chocolate chips over the toffee, let them soften and melt, and then spread them into an even layer.
5. Let cool and then refrigerate until hardened. Break into pieces the size of your choice. Best kept refrigerated.
