5 Ingredient Saltine Toffee

Another holiday recipe update!!

Ok, 5 ingredients, how complicated could this be? (I made 3 batches by the end of the holiday season).

Quick notes:
1) Use a casserole dish instead of a cookie sheet as the edges will keep the toffee part contained when it bubbles and prevent the crackers from separating too much.
2) Line the dish with tin foil (and non stick spray) or parchment paper because the toffee gets sticky

NOTE: I have also read the recipe made with cinnamon graham crackers so I did make a batch to test this. I found it to be very similar to the saltines.

Saltine Toffee

1 sleeve of saltine crackers
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup brown sugar (dark or light)
2-3 cups chocolate chips
1-2 cups chopped nuts (pecans)

Preheat oven to 350F
Line the saltine crackers in the bottom of the pan in a single layer.
In small pot combine 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar. Bring it to a boil for for 2-3 minutes.
Pour over crackers. Bake for about 5 minutes (it will get all bubbly)
Microwave chocolate chips at 30 second intervals stirring between intervals. Continue until smooth. (Approx 1 1/2 - 2 minutes)
Remove and using a spatula spread the chocolate. Scatter a few handfuls of chopped nuts over the top.
Let it chill in the fridge.
Leave on counter about 10 minutes so it will be easier to slice.
