These salty-sweet treasures make great gifts, and their flavor is simply irresistible. The bark is like brittle, but better. Get ready for a new family favorite! —Laura Cox, Brewster, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 40 saltines
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) milk chocolate English toffee bits

Directions

Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with heavy-duty foil. Arrange saltines in a single layer on foil; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Pour evenly over crackers.
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until bubbly. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Allow chips to soften for a few minutes, then spread over top. Sprinkle with toffee bits. Cool.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2 pounds.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • High humidity can cause sugary treats to become tacky. It's best to make candy on drier days.
  • Matzo crackers are a great substitute for saltines and perfect for Passover.
  • For deeper, more nuanced flavors (toasty and a tad bitter—those are good things!), substitute brown sugar for white, or brown your butter before adding sugar.

    "Super easy. I only use 1 cup of dark chocolate chips and spread them evenly after melting. You don't need any toppings either. Always a hit when I make it."

    "Try it with a layer of pretzels instead of saltines. Just be sure the pretzels are all flat and packed tightly together. Yum!"
