Saltine Toffee Candy

So how was the movie?  

You don't know what I am talking about?  You have to know because according to my two teenagers, EVERYONE was going to the midnight show for the new Harry Potter movie.....except for them of course.  We are horrible, strict and awful parents for making them wait until Saturday night when we are taking them to the Luverne Drive-In to see it with family friends.  How dare we!!!

I hope you all enjoyed the movie.
Maybe this recipe will help me win back a few "cool Mom" points.  For me, it is about as close to perfection as a candy can get.  Crunchy, salty, sweet, chocolate and nutty.  Now if you will excuse me, I need soak my teenager frustrations in candy and add a few more pounds to my pregnancy weight gain....

Saltine Toffee Candy
1 1/2 sleeves saltine crackers
1 C butter
1 C dark brown sugar
2 C semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 C chopped pecans

1.  Line large jelly roll pan with silpat liner or nonstick spray.  Line the bottom of the pan with a single layer of crackers.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.  In a medium sauce pan, bring the butter and sugar to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.  Stir well then pour evenly over the saltines.  Spread it as best as you can.  Bake for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and be sure each cracker has the toffee mixture over top if it.  
3.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips and allow to sit for about 5 minutes.  Spread chocolate evenly over the candy then sprinkle with nuts.  Cool completely and break into pieces.

Tell your kids that we aren't going until Saturday night and we're considered "cool". :) They didn't even offer a midnight showing here!

This recipe sounds right up my alley - easy to make and it has chocolate in it!

I found these two nights ago, and it reminded me of when I first tried these tasty goodies. Someone had brought them to work, and I couldn't believe they were saltines. I am now impatiently waiting until my batch cools completely! Thanks!
