I have never been much in the kitchen and I have never claimed to be.. to be honest- I am just lazy! The cooking is fun but the cleaning up STINKS. So unless I get a whim I spend very limited amounts of time in the kitchen. There has been days upon end that I never even enter the kitchen. *Gasp* I know, right?
But I stumbled upon a recipe the other day...that caught my eye and I immediately had to make it. I called up some friends and I told them I was going to make something..and they all began to worry about me.. I quickly calmed their fears.. after I told them how easy it was to make..
So even though several other bloggers have made this and passed it along.. I thought that I would too... I hope you try it. It is so very yummy and delicious.
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup real butter
2 cups chocolate chips
¾ cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and line a 10" x 15" with foil (the kind of sheet that has raised edges!). Spray with Pam, or grease VERY lightly with butter. Cover the cookie sheet with a single layer of saltines. Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring with a whisk. Pour over the saltines, and try to spread it as evenly as possible.Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. When you remove it, the caramel mixture will be molten and boiling; allow to cool about 3 min, or until you can see the crackers distinctly, which will have shifted while baking. Push them back into order with a fork or knife.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffee and let sit for about 5 minutes to melt. Once melted spread chocolate evenly. If desired, sprinkle on pecans and press lightly into the chocolate. Let cool a bit and then transfer to fridge to harden.
Once hard, break the candy into small pieces and place in an air tight container.
And share it.. because if you don't....
