Saltine Toffee Candy

A party favorite! This was a contribution from Suzy & Ben at Thanksgiving 2010 and was a hit. It almost didn’t make it to the dinner… it was too yummy!

Saltine Toffee Candy
Ingredients:

  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar (light or dark works fine – I used light in the last batch)
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (semisweet work too, but milk is best)
  • 3/4 cups chopped almonds (any nuts will work here – whatever you prefer)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  2. Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer. (line cookie sheet with tin foil first for easy clean up)
  3. In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts.
  5. Cool completely and cut/break into pieces. Store in airtight container until they’re gone (they’re best within the first few days… if they last that long!).
