A few months ago I tried out a recipe that I found on Pinterest. It was called Super Easy Saltine Toffee by Kara of Creations by Kara. It looked a little weird at first, I mean it was made out of saltine crackers! How is that going to taste like toffee? Kara was gushing about it though so I gave it a shot. I made a few alterations and WOW it is good! It really does taste like toffee! Plus when you add the Heath toffee bits you get double the chocolate and double the toffee. It was so good in fact that I decided that I would give it out as my neighbor Christmas gift for this year.
Heath Saltine Toffee
Adapted from Kara’s Easy Saltine Toffee
48 Saltine Crackers
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Bag Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Bag Heath Toffee Bits
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan (a cookie sheet with sides) with aluminum foil. Spray cooking spray on the foil. Arrange the saltines in a single layer on the pan. My pan fit 8 rows of 6 crackers. This was about 1 sleeve and a few more saltines. Melt the butter in a pan on the stove. Add the brown sugar and bring to a boil stirring frequently. Continue stirring frequently for 3 minutes. Pour the mixture over the saltine crackers. Smooth the mixture with the back of a spoon over the crackers. Bake for 6 minutes. When the timer goes off, take the crackers out right away. Pour the chocolate chips evenly on top of the crackers. Let stand for a few minutes then spread the chocolate evenly across the crackers. I used a flat spatula and it worked great. Sprinkle the Toffee bits evenly over top the crackers. Let sit until chocolate cools and hardens back up. To break them up, lift the foil behind them and bend at spaces between the crackers.
I packed mine up in a cellophane bag and added a Merry Christmas tag.
Behind the tag I added a sparkly snowflake Christmas tree ornament.
