I am almost ready for Christmas. One more Target stop and I am DONE SHOPPING! Yahoo! I refuse to step in a store the day of Christmas Eve and prefer to be in my house baking up treats. I did get a head start on some treats today.
The holidays wouldn’t be the same without Saltine Toffee. It is easy to make and I bag it up and give it out to many of our friends. People just love it. Not including cooling time, I can whip up a batch in under 20 minutes. Below is the recipe for the base but feel free to decorate it with nuts, sprinkles, or swirled chocolate. I made some with multi colored sprinkles and some with almonds, drizzled with white chocolate. I also carry around the recipe on cards because after friends eat it, they always ask for the recipe.
1 cup light brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
Line jelly roll pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Lay crackers out flat on foil. Melt sugar and butter and bring to boil until foamy (about 3 to 5 minutes). Pour over crackers and spread to coat. Bake 5 minutes in 400º oven or until bubbly. Remove from oven. While hot, sprinkle with chocolate chips, let soften and melt, then spread. Sprinkle with whatever toppings you like. Let the chocolate harden then break into pieces. Keep stored in the refrigerator.
