I have a new sweet & salty addiction and it is called Christmas toffee. I could pop this stuff in my pie hole all day and never tire of it, and I guarantee your friends and family will feel the same! Here is how to make this addicting delicacy.
- 30 to 40 saltine crackers
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 pan or similar with aluminum foil and spray it very well with cooking spray. Place the saltine crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan.
- In a saucepan, combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Once a boil is reached, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Stir the mixture often while it simmers to avoid bubbling over or scorching.
- After mixture has thickened a bit, remove it from the heat, wait 30 seconds, add the vanilla extract and stir. Pour mixture over the prepared pan with the saltine crackers. Bake in for 5- 7 minutes, or until toffee/liquid becomes bubbly.
- After removing the pan from the oven, let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips and wait for 3 to 5 minutes, letting them soften and melt a bit, and then spread and smooth them into an even layer with a spatula. After they have cooled a bit stick the pan in the fridge or freezer to firm them up. My family actually stores the toffee in the fridge to keep it fresh, and it tastes great cold.
Enjoy, and have a Merry Christmas!
