Ingredients

1
sleeve (about 35 saltine crackers)
1 c
unsalted butter ( 2 sticks)
1 c
brown sugar
1 pkg
11 1/2 oz. chocolate chips (any kind you prefer)
1/4 c
chopped nuts of your liking (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan (jelly roll pan) with foil. Grease the foil lined pan with shortening.

2Place crackers in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan (breaking them if needed to fit)

3In a medium saucepan,over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Whisk constantly and when it begins to boil gently, start timing and let it boil gently for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Take off heat after the 3 minutes.

4Pour toffee layer over cracker lined pan. Spread if needed to cover the crackers. (work quickly, as it does tend to harden quickly)

5Bake toffee covered crackers in preheated 375 degree oven for 5 minutes.

6Take out of oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the entire pan. Let sit a few minutes, and with a spatula spread the melting chocolate chips to create an even chocolate layer.
If using nuts, sprinkle nuts evenly over the chocolate.

7Let completely cool to the point of the chocolate being hardened. Cut into about 48 squares.
Be ready for it to disappear!
