Chocolate Toffee Squares

Did you ever have a Skor candy bar?  They are my favorite candy bar, hands-down!  Crispy toffee covered in chocolate, oh yeah.  Well, this easy recipe tastes a lot like that candy bar.  And you'll be surprised at the crazy ingredient in this one.


24 saltine crackers (yep, crackers)
1 stick butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup (heaping) chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate-your preference)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a large cookie sheet (with sides) with foil.  Spray the foil with cooking spray.  Arrange the saltines salt-side down in a single layer.

In a small pot, melt the butter and brown sugar.  Boil until it turns a caramel color.  This does not take long, just a few minutes.

Pour this mixture over the crackers, covering them evenly (it will spread in the oven, but try to get all the crackers covered).

Bake for 3-5 minutes, or just until it starts to bubble (watch it carefully).  The toffee spreads all over but don't worry, that's why you use the foil and cooking spray.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.  (I used mini chips, but regular-sized works, too)

Let them sit for a minute or two to get melty, then spread over the crackers with a butter knife or spatula.

Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or so (until completely cold).  Break them apart into squares.  Enjoy! (store leftovers in the fridge)

If you like toffee, you'll like these.  These little goodies are crisp and sweet with a hint of saltiness.  They remind me so much of a Skor bar!  Hope you like them!
