Quick Toffee Treats for Your Party
If you know me at all you know there are times I am truly challenged in the kitchen. I never make Jello. Not because I don't like it but because it never turns out right for me. It's either too rubbery or you can drink it with a straw. I can make these delicious treats though and to my surprise, successfully every time! This is a recipe we circulated on postcards from our book, A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts. There are lots of other great recipes in there as well--from the other authors who are much more successful in the kitchen.
10 Minute Toffee Treats
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil, then line with a single layer of saltines. In saucepan bring butter and sugar to boil. Boil 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines. Spread. Bake for ONLY 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Wait 4 minutes and spred. Sprinkle with nuts Cool and break into pieces.
