Saltine candy

“Christmas Crack” {AKA Saltine Toffee Candy}

  • 1 cup butter (NOT margarine - original recipe calls for unsalted butter but I've used both)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 40 saltine crackers
  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. Line 12x17 cookie sheet with foil and spray well with cooking spray.
  3. Layer the saltine crackers on top of the foil.
  4. Heat butter and sugar on stovetop and heat until gently boiling, stirring constantly.
  5. Reduce heat to very low boiling and cook, uncovered, 3 minutes, until the mixture is thickened and sugar is dissolved. (Be careful to avoid burning the butter and sugar- that will ruin the recipe!)
  6. Pour butter and sugar mixture over crackers and spread evenly.
  7. Bake 5-6 minutes in oven.
  8. Remove pan from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes, then sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  9. As chocolate chips melt, carefully spread into an even layer over the toffee layer.
  10. Let cool completely (refrigerate to cool more quickly.)
  11. Break into bite-sized pieces and serve. . . yum!
  12. Store covered in refrigerator.
