With only 5 ingredients this treat could not be easier to make. A wonderfully crisp delicate layer topped with a butter toffee and chocolate. Nuts optional. The secret ingredient is saltine crackers. Great on a cookie tray and takes only a few minutes to make.Unlike other toffee recipes, this one is delicate and very flaky crisp. Just chocolate toffee perfection!
Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan (jelly roll pan) with foil. Grease the foil lined pan with shortening.
Place crackers in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan (breaking them if needed to fit)
In 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.
Pour toffee layer over cracker lined pan. Spread if needed to cover the crackers. (work quickly, as it does tend to harden quickly)
Bake toffee covered crackers in preheated 375 degree oven for 5 minutes.
Take 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.
Let completely cool to the point of the chocolate being hardened. Cut into about 48 squares.
Be ready for it to disappear!
