    Default Recipe: Saltine Toffee Bars

    I just found out I have to bring a dessert to a meeting for work tomorrow , but I found this great looking recipe:

    SALTINE TOFFEE BAR COOKIES

    (I got this from cookierecipe.com!)

    Makes 1 cookie sheet, you can break it into small or large pieces.

    1 sleeve (from a 1 lb. box) saltines
    1 cup butter
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 12-oz. package chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli double chocolate)
    chopped nuts, optional

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Line a cookie sheet (the kind with sides) with a single layer of saltine crackers.

    In a saucepan, combine butter & sugar, over high heat, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes (keep stirring!). Immediately pour over saltines and spread quickly to cover crackers.

    Bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cover evenly with chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes and spread chocolate; sprinkle on nuts if using. Let cool completely (we put it in the fridge for an hour to cool it faster), then break into pieces. Keep covered tightly!

    I line my cookie sheet with aluminum foil and I spray the foil with a cooking spray like Pam or whatever I happen to have. I put my pan in our chest freezer to cool it quickly. Once it is cool I pull the foil out of the pan and peel it off the back of the toffee and then I break the toffee into pieces!!

    This stuff is probably sinful! I make it several times a year and people are always amazed at how good it is!

    OMG! I saw this recipe on here last week and I made it on Sunday afternoon. My family absolutely loved it. I took a piece of it to work on Monday with my lunch and today I had to bring the recipe and copy it for all of our staff. Everybody was shocked that it had saltines in it!

    Thanks!

    We call it "better than money toffee". I made it on New Year's Eve for the first time, and we all loved it. I did double the part to spread over the crackers though. There didn't seem to be enough in the recipe as it was written.

    If there was ever a recipe where it was worth the price of Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Foil, it's this one (LOL)!
