Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 325 F. degrees.
  • Prepare the baking pan by lining it with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the crackers in a single layer on the lined baking pan, salt side up. Set aside.
  • Place 2 sticks of butter and 1 packed cup of light brown sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  • On low melt, the butter, occasionally stirring. Once the butter has melted completely increase the heat to medium.
  • Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, occasionally stirring. Once the mixture is boiling continue to stir for 3 minutes or until the mixture has turned a rich caramel color or has reached 285 F. degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • Once done pour over the crackers on the baking pan. Use a spatula to spread the toffee over all of the crackers.
  • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake to 7 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.
  • After 4 to 5 minutes use a clean spatula to spread the melted chocolate chips over the toffee.
  • If using nuts sprinkle the nuts over the soft chocolate. Gently push down on the nuts so they sink into the chocolate.
  • Place the tray in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes to harden.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened run a sharp knife around the edges of the pan. Use the tip of the knife to lift a corner of the parchment paper and remove from the pan.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut into bite size pieces.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
  • Makes 35 to 40 bitesize pieces.

Expert Recipe Tips

  • Making the toffee: Boiling could take 3 to 5 minutes depending on your stove top. Watch for a noticeable change in color.
  • Nuts: Nuts are optional. I used nuts on half of my tray. I used less than ½ a cup of chopped Georgia Pecans.
  • More Nuts: You will need about 1 cup of chopped nuts if you want to cover the entire tray.
  • Cutting the toffee: The number of pieces this recipe makes will depend on how large you cut them.
