saltine toffee crackers

Kristen and I made these all the time in Lubbock. They are so good! I try not to make them unless I am giving them away because I will just eat myself sick.

You will need:
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 cups of chocolate chips (I always use milk chocolate)
saltine crackers

Cover a cookie sheet with foil. (don't skip this part, foil is very important) Line the whole sheet with saltine crackers.

In a saucepan, melt 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) and 1 cup of brown sugar. I let the butter melt first on medium high heat and then add the brown sugar. Stir them together. When it begins to boil, STOP stirring and let it boil for 3 minutes. Then pour over the crackers. Put in oven for 5 minutes at 400.

Once they come out of oven, sprinkle 2 cups of chocolate chips on top and let set for a few minutes. They will start to melt and you can spread them all over the crackers.

I then put the whole cookie sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes and let everything harden. Once it is set, just break it up into pieces and enjoy! I like to keep mine in the freezer.

I bagged some up for Ella and McKenna to give their teachers for a little Halloween treat.
