I just found out I have to bring a dessert to a meeting for work tomorrow :poop:, 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!!

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.

We make this at Christmas time along with the other goodies. It is soooo good. We like the way the cracker cuts the sweetness just a little bit compared to 'real' tofee.
