My girlfriend brought these over for a dessert a few weeks ago.
It was the first time I had this....
and it won't be the last!
These things are addicting! My sister-in-law told me that a coworker of hers makes these and calls them "crack" (as in that's the name of this recipe). I can totally see why! They are that good!
Gabe actually told me the other day that another batch needed to be made because we were running out! So I decided to try and make them.
And....they are super duper easy. Addicting + easy = bad! These will probably become a staple in our house which is a bad thing, but they are so.darn.yummy!
Try them please!
Saltine Toffee Bark
Saltine crackers (enough to line a 9x13" pan-I used 28 crackers)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
heath bar bits (or nuts/sprinkles/any garnish you desire)
1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Line a 9x13" pan with foil and spray foil with non-stick spray (aka Pam)
3. Cover bottom of pan with saltine crackers:
6. Remove from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Let stand 5mins, then spread chocolate chips on top of crackers. Sprinkle with whatever garnish you want to use:
(Notes: The recipe actually calls for 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of sugar and 2 cups of choc chips. After reading a lot of reviews online it sounded like it was a little overkill so I cut back on the amounts a bit and to me they tasted just fine. It seems the big garnish to use is walnuts, but Gabe isn't a fan of nuts so we stuck with the Heath bits, which is what my friend used as well. To cool mine, I stuck the entire pan in the fridge for awhile until it felt pretty solid and then I broke it into pieces. I have no idea how long it would have to sit at room temperature to get hard enough to break-I'm guessing a few hours easily. This also freezes really well too-added bonus!)
