For my 100th post (2 years ago) I shared a recipe for Graham Break-Aways. It's a layered snack of graham crackers, buttery toffee, chocolate with a sprinkling of nuts on top. It's a decadent treat that my husband adores. I like them too, but I saw this recipe for saltine toffee and thought I'd give it a try. It's basically the same concept with salty crackers on the bottom instead of the grahams. And since we bought a case of Saltines from Sam's Club, I thought this was a good idea!
I did make a boo-boo when it came to the recipe though. It calls for 1 cup one butter, and I mistook that as 1 stick even though I read the recipe about 3 times as I was making it. I didn't realize my mistake until after I had taken them out of the oven- my bad! The saltine toffee was good but I'm sure it could have been better with the extra stick of butter...that's a no brainer! I liked these but still prefer the the ones made with grahams simply because of the texture of the cracker. Definitely super sweet and addicting though- some have even refereed to it as crack. Try it and decide for yourself!
Saltine Toffee from All Recipes
- 35 saltine crackers (4 ounces)
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Spread out saltine crackers in single layer.
In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely.
Bake at 400 degrees F 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.
