Some days you just need a quick, easy and sweet treat to make your day (or someone else's) just a little brighter! Today has definitely been one of those days around here. Not only are we gearing up for yet another snow storm promising to dump a foot or more of snow on us but we wanted to give a little gift to some friends who could use a little cheer. Here is a perfect little treat to fit the bill, I remember making these with my grandma when I was little.
Easy Toffee Crackers
1/2 C. butter (margarine will work)
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 C. chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
chopped nuts or sprinkles (optional)
Boil 3 minutes WITHOUT stirring.
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
Spread crackers out over cookie sheet with edges touching.
When sugar mixture is done, pour over crackers and spread to cover all the crackers.
Bake in pre-heated 400 degree oven for 7 minutes. Crackers will be bubbly looking.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot crackers and let sit for 1-2 minutes to soften.
Allow crackers to cool completely.
Break crackers into chunks.
