Megans Cookin: Super Simple Saltine Toffee

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Super Simple Saltine Toffee

My friend Channon told me my recipes were to hard. Actually she said, "to many steps." She's an admitted lazy cook, so this recipe is dedicated to Channon.

To get the recipe I first googled it. I followed the first recipe I found because it sounded right. It was screwed up. It said to melt the butter and brown sugar till oooy and gooey. I should have listened to the little voice in my head. I kind of thought it should at least come to a boil. But I followed the recipe, only to get a gritty toffee.

Second recipe = success

Melt two stick of butter and two cup of brown sugar in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, line a 10x15 baking sheet with Saltine crackers.

Pour butter and sugar mixture over crackers.

Spread it out to the edges. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

Pour one bag of milk chocolate chips over the top.

Spread out the chocolate with the back of a spoon as it melts. Let sit in the refrigerator till set. Break into pieces

All that Matzo on sale from Passover would work well too. I need to try this.

I make this and give it out for christmas every year and it's always a huge hit! I normally toast some almond slices to put on top :)

Hey I've been making this for years too. We call it Ghetto Toffee, lol. I don't know how the name came about, but that's what it's always been called. We also add nuts to the top of ours. It's always a big hit.
