Saltine Toffee

Baker beware! Saltine Toffee is very addictive.

I first tasted it 5-years ago at a relative’s home, and once I enjoyed my first bite, I couldn’t stop eating it. When the recipe was shared with me, I wouldn’t have been surprised if it had contained an illegal ingredient.

Of course it didn’t.

What it did contain were copious amounts of butter, brown sugar and chocolate: No wonder it was so good!

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar (I’ve used light brown sugar before and it still tastes delicious)
  • 4 ounces saltine crackers
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

1. Line a parchment covered cookie sheet with saltine crackers.
