How to Make Saltine Cracker Toffee

Heat the oven to 325°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper.  Do not use wax paper because it will stick to the bottom of the crackers.

Arrange the crackers in a single layer on the pan.

Cook the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until melted and smooth, stirring slowly. When it begins to bubble, cook for 3 minutes while stirring.  Remove from the heat.  The mixture will be slightly thick and will easily coat a wooden spoon.  Don’t overcook it or it will crystallize and harden.

Immediately pour the sugar and butter mixture slowly and evenly over the crackers. The crackers might float a little, but that’s okay, just move them back in place with the tip of a knife and make sure all of the crackers are covered in the sugar mixture.

Bake 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. Return to the oven until the chips begin to melt and lose their shape, about 1 minute. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the surface and sprinkle with pecans.

Let stand until nearly set and then chill until firm, at least 2 hours. Slice with a large knife into even pieces.  Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
