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.

    "Wow! This was easy and dangerously delicious. It pleased both toffee lovers (me) and those normally not fond of it (my husband). I made this for gifts for the neighbors and will keep this in my rotation and use often"

    "Delicious, super easy. Will make great gifts for friends at a Christmas gathering. I used club crackers (whole grain) and will use brown sugar, maybe nuts, next time. A real keeper that I can return to again and again."

    "I've been making this for awhile except with one exception, I use ground up walnuts in place of the toffees to give it a little protein....everyone loves it...I've also used the Keebler crackers in place of the saltines, also very good! Makes a lot so you can share. You also can keep it wrapped in aluminum foil and freeze it. YUM!"
