I came across this delicious creation while wandering about pinterest. I had pinned it to my need to make board and decided yesterday was the day. I have no idea why it took me so long to whip this recipe together, but I was seriously missing out. The blogger who had shared this got it from her gramma and it's definitely one of those special gramma recipes. Special gramma recipes always are quite simple, but yet taste so amazing. They are warm, comforting recipes that fill the heart with love and memories.
I thoroughly impressed with the taste. They remind me of the inside of a skor bar. Drizzle some milk chocolate on these little babies and it would definitely be a saltine cracker version of a skor bar. Yeah, toffee is one of my favorites.
I should include toffee in more recipes. It's going on my list.
I was super excited for Wesley to try these. He took a bite and with a grossed out look he says this is toffee. I said SUREEE IS! As I turned around and saw the disgusted look on his face, I lost my enthusiasm. He said to me you know I hate toffee. I had a clueless look on my face. Then he burst out laughing and grabbed another cracker. Sometimes, men can be such jerks. Of course, he was just messing with me, but still! Men, don't be jerks!
As I think back on my loud response of "SUREEE IS", it makes me think of something Tow Mater would say on Cars in some redneck voice. See, we're going on three weeks of Cars, Cars 2, and Planes. I guess Mater talk is inevitable at this point. I'm just hoping to come out of this Cars kick with my sanity.
Saltine Cracker Toffee
- 46 saltine crackers , salted tops
- 1 cup salted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 17.25x11.5x1 jelly roll pan with tin foil. Spray with cooking spray.
- Line the jelly roll pan with all 46 crackers.
- In a medium saucepan, add in butter and brown sugar. Melt the butter over medium heat.
- Once the butter is melted, watch for the brown sugar to bubble around the edges. Let the mixture boil for three minutes while stirring. It will be thick and foamy as it bubbles.
- Remove mixture from the heat and pour over top of the saltine crackers. Spread the brown sugar mixture with a butter knife to cover all the crackers.
- Place the saltine crackers in the 325 degree oven for 8 minutes. This will spread the toffee evenly on all the crackers.
- Remove from the oven and let cool. Break the saltines apart. If you want the crackers to be a little neater, while the toffee is still hot, move the crackers to a cooling rack that has a piece of parchment paper under it to catch the toffee drippings.
- Place in an air tight container.
