Foodie Friday: Saltine toffee

I wanted a simple, large batch of sweets to give as Valentine treats this year, and saltine toffee seemed perfect. Just sprinkle on the colors of your choice, and you have the perfect holiday gift!

Saltine Toffee
compilation of many recipes found online

2 sleeves of salted saltine crackers (store brand is fine)
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
sprinkles of your choice (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with foil. Line the pan with saltines so that the entire pan is covered. Set aside. In a saucepan, add the 2 sticks of butter and the brown sugar. Stir while it melts and let it come to a boil. Set a timer and boil the mixture for 3 minutes. Carefully pour the butter mixture over the crackers, spreading with a spatula. Bake for 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the butter mixture. Allow the chocolate chips to melt for a few minutes, then spread them over the butter mixture with a spatula. If you want, add sprinkles at this time. You could also sprinkle on crushed saltines or slivered almonds.

Chill the pan of toffee in the fridge or freezer, then break into pieces.
