Saltine Toffee Bark Recipe

Publisher Photo
Get ready for a new family favorite—like brittle, but better. Pack pieces of sweet-and-salty treasures in decorated cardboard gift tubes or recycled oatmeal containers wrapped with decorative paper (or use scraps of self-adhesive wallpaper). Trim with green pompom fringe. Make it fun by adding a bow made from newspaper. —Laura Cox, Brewster, Massachusetts

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2014

I've been making these for a few years now. They are everyone's favorite and I get requests for them all year round. I've started to get creative with different combinations. I've done dark chocolate with coconut flakes and Mint choc chips with crushed M&Ms (In the future I'd definitely use mini M&Ms, unless you need to get out some frustration, then stick with the regular size ones and hammer them!). The classic is still a crowd favorite!

These are a huge hit every time I make them! The sweet and salty combination is irresistible.

Fantastic recipe! I made it twice, the first time I used Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate morsels and it came out perfect. The second time I used toll house semi sweet morsels and the chocolate totally seized and it didn't work at all.

MY REVIEW

I made 6 batches of this for a group of employees. I perfected it a bit as a went. It needs a little salt added to the butter/sugar mixture, and I generally don't salt many things. Also, It didn't need a full 8oz bag of toffee bits. If you are making mutiple patches, 2 pkgs will do 3 pans of bark. For the cooking portion, I felt it produced a better product when I boiled the butter sugar mixture for 3-4 minutes and then baked it for 10-12 minutes until it was golden and bubbly. It was a crispier product that broke into pieces much better than when I only baked it only 8-10. It was stickier and didn't break as nice. But the taste is excellent either way!

This was the grossest thing I ever made. A waste of good ingredients, time and money.
