English Toffee

Southern style, my English friend Jan laughed at the name of this.  But she loved the recipe :)

English Toffee

2 sticks real butter

1 cup sugar

1 sleeve of saltine crackers

12 oz. milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  Place crackers on cookie sheet, flat, one layer.  Melt butter, add sugar and boil for 3 minutes.  Pour mixture over crackers.  Bake 15 minutes or until they are a toffee color.  Remove from oven, pour chocolate chips over crackers wait 1-2 minutes and use a spatula to spread evenly over toffee.  Sprinkle with crushed pecans, while still warm…this is optional.  Place in freezer for 1/2 hour.  Break in pieces and enjoy.

    So do they not have toffee in England. You need to re-name it then, Debbie’s Toffee! Merry Christmas.

    I would call it “Southern Toffee” but it does sound interesting with the saltines.

    Hi Debbie,
    This is my daughters favorite treat at Christmas…
    The only thing is that it does not last long! Especially when there is a crowd.
    All the Best,
