Toffee - Secret

Travel Food Recipes

An oldie but a goody, fun to take with you and a real conversation starter at potlucks. SECRET TOFFEE 1/2 cup butter 2/3 cup brown sugar 24 unsalted soda crackers 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels 3/4 cups finely chopped walnuts or toasted almonds Preheat oven to 375. Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with foil, letting foil extend up the sides. Melt butter in small saucepan; add sugar and let mixture come to a full boil until sugar melts and turns syrupy, about 30 seconds. Pour into the foil-lined pan, tilt to cover bottom evenly. Top with a single layer soda crackers, leaving about 1/8 inch between crackers. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate morsels and nuts evenly over top. Return to oven for 1 minute. Spread chocolate-nut mixture with a rubber spatula into an even layer, being careful not to disturb cracker layer. Refrigerate 1 hour until firm. Lift from pan, peel foil and break into chunks. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yields 1-1/2 pounds.
