WARNING: This recipe makes cracker toffee that is highly addictive.
Okay I just needed to get that warning listed before I wrote about this recipe. It is very true that this toffee is highly addictive and I wanted to get make sure I warned my readers. If you do make this toffee, I can guarantee that you will not have any leftover by the end of the day. It will be quickly devoured by everyone in your household. If fact the recipe doesn’t even have storage instructions because there will be no need to store the toffee, it will all get eaten, I promise.
So with that said, this toffee recipe is super simple and only requires 4 ingredients. I have made many versions of toffee in the past. Most were quite difficult to say the least. I always had issues with the toffee never setting up correctly. The toffee either came out very hard or too soft. This toffee recipe is a no fail recipe. The cracker part of the toffee ensures that the finished toffee comes out perfect every time.
This recipe is for a basic cracker toffee. You can change up the toffee flavor by adding different ingredients to the top of the toffee while it is cooling. Some ingredient ideas include, crushed nuts (peanut or almond work best), sprinkles, candy (M & M’s or Reese’s pieces), dried berries, dried fruits, shredded coconut or marshmallows.
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
salted saltine or butter crackers
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Completely cover a cookie sheet (preferably one with raised sides) with aluminum foil. Line up crackers in a single layer on the cookie sheet, covering the entire bottom of the sheet.
In a medium sized saucepan combine sugar and butter. Over medium to high heat, bring to a boil. Boil for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over crackers. Spread to cover crackers completely with the butter mixture.
Bake in preheated oven for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips. Spread the melted chocolate over the sugar coated crackers. Cool completely and then break into pieces.
