Baker's Review Wednesday 2: Toffee

I realized today that I haven't been posting very much lately . . . oops:(  Don't like when I do that!!!  But then I remembered that I needed to bake something today, too, so I started looking through recipe books, and I thought of this simple and delicious toffee recipe.  I really like it, and everyone else seems to, too:)

So here's the recipe in picture/writing format.  I'll give you a recipe like I do my others at the bottom of the post;)

So first you line your pan with foil and lay out 24 saltine crackers.  I had a picture of that but accidentally deleted it, so here's a picture of after I took it out of the pan (way later), just so you can see the layout of the crackers.

Next put the butter and brown sugar in a kettle.

Turn the heat on and mix the sugar and butter up.

Once the sugar and butter mixture is boiling, boil for 3 minutes.

Pour mixture over crackers.

Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until bubbly.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let it sit there so the chocolate can melt.

Once chocolate has a chance to melt, spread out and sprinkle with almonds.

Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened.  Take the foil off the toffee.

Break up into pieces.


So my review on this recipe . . .my thoughts?!?!:
I love this recipe.  It's so simple, easy, and delicious.  It's a quick treat and everyone will love it . . . well, I think they will anyways!  So everyone should try this wonderful recipe for toffee.
By the way, it's optional to put the almonds on top.  If we have them, we put them on top.  If we make it on impulse, and we don't have them . . . well, oh well!


24 saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
optional sliced almonds

Line 9x13 pan with foil.  Place saltine crackers on bottom.  Melt together butter and brown sugar; boil for 3 minutes.  Pour butter and brown sugar mixture over crackers.  Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes, or until bubbly.  Cover with chocolate chips; let melt and then spread out.  Sprinkle almonds on top.

(This recipe is from my aunt, Darla ~ Thanks for the wonderful recipe!)

So what do you guys think?  Do you like me doing the picture tutorial recipe and the plain 'ol word one, or do you just like the word recipe . . . no picture tutorial???  Either way is fine with me . . . let me know what you'd like to see.  Also, is there any certain types of recipes you'd like to see?  I'd love to hear from everyone!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day . . .I have something fun I made to show you soon!

Oh Miss Aimee! You are making me want these toffee bars so much! I am on a diet, and therefore must avoid them. I like the picture posts, if it's something I haven't made before I like to see what it should look like when it's done. :)
