Easy Toffee Recipe

I spent most of Sunday making candy and goodies for my fellow co-workers. Each year I search the Internet for new and different recipes. One thing I always look for is EASY! I love making items that look like they took time but in reality were quick and easy to whip up. One I found this year is Easy Toffee Recipe. It was easy. Of course, I didn't exactly follow directions...I always have to find a way to make the recipe my own =)

Easy Toffee Recipe

2 ½ sticks of butter, divided (no substitutes)
Saltine crackers (I used graham crackers and I like the way it turned out)
1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1 - 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 bag of chocolate chips (I was making candy so I melted the candy chocolate I had)
chopped nuts

  1. Preheat oven at 425ยบ. Cover a 15x10x1 jellyroll pan with heavy duty foil
  2. Melt the ½ stick of butter and pour into the jelly roll pan
  3. Cover the pan with crackers, breaking them to cover the small spots. Set aside.
  4. In same pan, melt the 2 sticks of butter
  5. Add the dark brown sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to low and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix well.
  7. Pour over crackers and spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until bubbly and the top begins to brown.
  9. Remove from oven and set on wire rack. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  10. Sprinkle chips and allow them to get shiny. Spread over the toffee.
  11. Sprinkle the chopped nuts on top, lightly pressing them into the chocolate.
  12. Let cool for 30 minutes on counter then place in refrigerator for another 30 minutes.

Cut and enjoy!!

It tastes so good and people would think you slaved over a hot stove LOL!

God bless!!

I also tend to choose easy recipes that look fantastic on the plate. I think the edible decoration does it!

Happy Holidays!
