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.)
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... Directions: 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!
