Valentine's Day Treat

I made this recipe at Christmas.  It didn't last long.  It would make a great Valentine's Day treat to make for gifts.  (I learned about it from a sweet para who brought it to me.) 

Fool's Toffee

36 saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 (12 ounce) package chocolate or white chocolate chips
1 cup of your choice of chopped walnuts, peanuts, sprinkles, crushed candy, etc...

1 Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non stick cooking spray.
2 Place the saltines side by side but not over lapping each other.
3 In a sauce pan melt the 1 cup of butter and add the cup of brown sugar bring to a slow boil stirring constantly for about 4 minutes.
4 Immediately pour over the crackers try to coat as evenly as possible.
5 Bake in the oven at 375°F for 5-7 minutes immediately remove from oven and pour the entire bag of chips over the toffee (give them some time to melt) and spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle your choice of topping over the candy and press down lightly.
6 Refrigerate till cool then remove and break into pieces and serve!

I picture this with white chocolate chips and pink and red sprinkles for Valentine's Day.

Word of warning:  definitely not a recipe for those watching their weight.  I pretty much wanted to consume the whole batch! However, for a quick, no fuss treat--you can't beat this one.  And your recipient will be quite happy!
