"This is the recipe that we make every Christmas, ever since I saw it in Q/C of '04. Everyone loves it, and always ask "Are you making a lot of Saltine Toffee this year?" quick, delicious, and can be topped with a variety of nuts or types of drizzles. Thank you Jo Ann for this recipe!"

"This is my go to no fail recipe. Everyone loves it where ever I take it. I don't usually bother with white drizzle I sprinkle with either walnuts or pecans what ever I have on hand. Makes it more like English toffee. Would not recommend for microwave"

"OK Girls what did I do wrong? Butter and sugar separated and the sugar never completely melted. I used the microwaves was that my problem?"

"My parents asked me NOT to make this for them anymore!!! Once you start eating these addicting saltines you can't stop. I also use brown sugar. The beauty of this recipe is it allows you to use what is on hand. Any kind of chocolate chips or nuts works great. This allows you to customize each tray."

"I used brown sugar instead of white. I have made this over and over again. It is very simple and makes a large batch. We like to package this up as gifts and have also sold it at craft fairs. Very, Very good!"

"Great recipe! I took the advice of the other reviewers and used brown sugar. That worked great! I did one batch with semi-sweet choc, but I also tried a batch with half butterscotch chips and half milk choc and peanut butter chip...these were harder to spread and didn't look at pretty, but they were tasty! Yummmmm!"

"I had to admit I thought using saltine crackers in a candy recipe sounded weird, but thought I would give it a go considering the high ratings. Wow, did I get a surprise - it tastes amazing! easy to make too. This will definitely become a favorite."
