Chocolate Cracker Toffee

You won't be able to eat just one. Or one dozen.

I am in love with Pinterest.

I love spending time pinning interesting photos, recipes, outfits, houses and vacation spots. I have spent billions of imaginary dollars decorating fabulous rooms and buying pretty clothes. I also get many ideas for recipes I would never have otherwise thought about. Here is one such recipe I found, tried, and fell in love with — Cracker Toffee.

At first, the recipe seemed simple, but dubious. A layer of soda crackers, covered with a caramel made of butter and brown sugar, and finally covered with chocolate. Broken into pieces, it supposedly resembled chocolate-covered toffee. There were many, many rave reviews and vows of its deliciousness and addictive nature. It seemed too good to be true, but since there were so few ingredients I was willing to try it.

To put it simply — this stuff ROCKS. It has that fantastic salty/sweet thing going on, with a hit of chocolate. It truly is addictive. It is so easy to make you will want to make it all the time.

Chocolate Cracker Toffee

40 salted soda crackers or enough to line your pan
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips
(optional) 3/4 cup chopped pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Line crackers in a single layer on the cookie sheet.  
  2. In a saucepan, melt sugar and butter  together and bring to a boil. Once boiling, continue boiling for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over crackers and spread to cover completely. 
  3. Bake at 400° for 5 to 6 minutes. It will get all bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and let sit a couple of minutes to melt.  Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts if desired. Cool completely and break into pieces.
