Although the title of this post reads “Saltine Toffee Cookies”, I consider these more of a candy due to the fact that the brown sugar and butter creates a toffee brittle that reminds me of my favorite candy bars-Skor and Heath. I have seen these recipe around the blog and was very curious to try, using saltine crackers in a dessert?? Also I am the hugest fan of any dessert with toffee in it! Random fact: You cannot eat more than 6 saltine crackers at once, apparently your throat gets dry and you cannot swallow. Anyways, these were pretty simple to make since they only require five ingredients and would make a great and inexpensive Christmas gift. Recipe is from All Recipes.
4 ounces saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
2. Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer.
3. In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread t cover crackers completely.
4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.
So delicious! And so sweet! Chocolate and toffee, what a delicious combination.
