This was one of the treats I put in my Christmas Goody Boxes this year.
I never knew a saltine cracker could be transformed into such a delight!
Saltine Christmas Toffee
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed tightly
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 40 saltine crackers
- 3 containers of M & M Mini's
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
Lay a flat layer of crackers out on the parchment paper.
Melt the sugar and butter until mixture boils. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and sugar is completely dissolved.
Pour this mixture over the crackers and spread to coat evenly. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the toffee becomes bubbly.
After removing the pan from the oven, let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle on the chocolate chips, let them soften and melt, and then spread them into an even layer.
Sprinkle the M & M Minis on next. Mash down with slight pressure so that they will stick in the chocolate when you break the toffee apart.
Let cool or refrigerate until hardened. Break into pieces and enjoy.
