Everyone loves these salty-sweet treasures—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 semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) milk chocolate English toffee bits

Directions

  1. Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with heavy-duty foil. Arrange saltines in a single layer on foil; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.



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.
