Saltine Toffee Squares


   My Mom called me last week and raved about some really good toffee one of her co-workers made. I did a little internet search, and found the recipe. It was so easy to make, and very delicious! My Mom also suggested I add some crushed candy cane and sprinkles to make it extra cute and Christmas-ee. Well, it worked. The candy canes gave it a nice extra little flavor, and they turned out pretty darn cute. I made a ton and passed it out to my neighbors  :)


Saltine Toffee Squares
Adapted from: allrecipes.com


40 Saltine Crackers
1 cup Unsalted Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips
2 Candy Canes, crushed (optional)
Christmas colored sprinkles (optional)


DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large, rimmed cookie sheet with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. Line crackers in a single layer.

In a medium saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour evenly over the crackers. (Make sure to cover each cracker) 

Place in oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand a couple minutes, and then spread melted chocolate evenly over the toffee. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and/or sprinkles.

Let cool completely and then cut into squares. Enjoy!

We need to make friends with more of our neighbors. I'm dying to make so many Christmas goodies, but if I keep baking, the husband is really going to start packing on the pounds! I bet the candy canes gave these little bites a nice, unique flavor. I'd love one, I'm sure.

These are great treats to give as gifts because they not only taste great, but they look really cute all wrapped up!

Oh my gosh! I had some of these in a batch of Christmas goodies that a co-worker brought in to work, and I have been looking for the recipe since. They were so good! Thanks for making my search easy!

Great idea to add the sprinkle of peppermint! I have a weak spot for toffee :)

These are wonderful even without the chocolate - especially on graham crackers but the saltines give it a great salty/sweet taste. Easy treat - potlucks love these too
