Saltine crackers – 1.5 sleeves
Butter – 1 stick
Packed brown sugar – 1 cup
Chocolate chips – 2 cups
Put the oven to preheat to 350 degrees.
Take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil, put cooking spray or oil to grease it so that the toffee doesn't stick.
Put the crackers on the baking sheet. They shouldn't be overlapping and don’t leave any empty spaces between them.
If there are any remaining crackers, crush them into crumbs and put them aside for the time.
In a small sauce pan over medium high heat, melt the butter and brown sugar.
Keep stirring while the butter is melting and let the mixture come to a boil.
Once it has started boiling, pour the mixture on the crackers arranged on the baking sheet.
Try to pour it evenly so that all the crackers are covered.
If there are any crackers left uncovered, the toffee will spread when it is baking.
Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for five minutes.
The toffee will be bubbling by then.
Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool outside for a minute.
Take the chocolate chips and sprinkle them evenly on the hot toffee.
They will take a minute to melt and soften. After they get soft, with the help of a knife, spread the melted chocolate in a smooth layer on the whole surface.
Also sprinkle any crushed crackers on top.
Put the pan in the fridge so that the toffee sets.
Half an hour is enough for this.
After the toffee is completely hard, break it into pieces using your hand.
It can easily be stored into air tight jars for a week.
