Candy Crackers

 

40 saltine crackers (approx.)

1 cup salted butter, cubed

1 cup soft light brown sugar (packed)

2 cups chocolate chips

1/2 – 1 cup M&M’s (or chopped nuts or sliced almonds)

 

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees

Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper

Line the pan with saltine crackers

Place the butter and sugar in a medium sized pot over low medium-low heat

Stir until the butter is melted

Once the butter has melted, bring to a boil for 3 minutes

Stir constantly

Once it’s nice and bubbly and changed to more of a caramel color, remove pan from heat and pour evenly over saltine crackers

Spread mixture with a knife or spatula

Try to move fast during this part so the toffee doesn’t harden

Place pan in the oven and bake for 7-9 minutes

The mixture will spread evenly over the crackers as it bakes

While that bakes I melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30-45 seconds

Remove pan from oven and pour chocolate chips on top, spread with a spatula

Sprinkle M&M’s (or nuts) on top and then place in the freezer for 15 minutes

Once chocolate has hardened break pieces off the foil and store in an airtight container
