Holidays on a Budget: Saltine Toffee

Here is another simple candy to share this Holiday Season.

Only 4 simple ingredients And you can find them all in your pantry, or on hand.

You will need:
  • a little more than 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
  • 1 and 1/2 sticks of butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar
  • 1 package chocolate chips
Line a half-sheet pan with foil and non-stick spray. I also like to add parchment paper, but I keep the foil to protect the sides of the pan. I just got a shiny new pan. I'd like it to stay that way. ;-)

Preheat your oven to 350.

Lay out your crackers.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt together the butter and the brown sugar. Let come to a boil.
Pour over your crackers and smooth out with a spatula.
Bake for 5-7 minutes until the whole thing is bubbling like crazy throughout.

Remove from the oven and let sit for about a minute. Sprinkle with the chips and let sit for another minute.

Spread with an offset spatula.

Chill in your fridge for about 45 minutes or until set. Break into chunks.
