Toffee - Week 9 of 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies!

 I hope that each and every one of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving.  I know we did...I'm still feeling full from all of the delicious food we ate.  I'm finally getting around to my cookie post for the day.  We've been having so much fun decorating for Christmas that I haven't gotten around to it...until now.  I made toffee this week to share for our Thanksgiving dinner, but we had so much food that we barely ate it!  :)  It's super easy and fun to make.  The recipe says to use foil, but next time I would probably try something different.  The toffee stuck to the foil pretty bad and I had to use some strong forces to get it off!  Maybe parchment paper or a silicone mat would work better. 
adapted from: Cooks
40 saltine crackers
1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. milk chocolate chips
Arrange 40 saltine crackers on foil on a jelly roll pan. Melt butter and brown sugar in pan and boil 3 minutes. Pour over crackers. Bake for 5 minutes in preheated oven at 325 degrees. Pour chocolate chips over and let stand 5 minutes to melt. Spread around with knife. Place in refrigerator until hard. Break up into bite-size pieces. Yum!

This would look great on any holiday cookie tray!  I can't wait to see what every one else is baking this week for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies!  Christmas Season has officially begun - time to pack up the pumpkins and pull out the trees, angels, Santa's, nativities, and stockings!  Our house is starting to feel like Christmas!
Week 9 Twelve Weeks of Christmas:


  1. I made these for the first time a few weeks ago, and I love them! They're so simple and taste great!

  2. Nothing like an easy recipe that everyone would enjoy. I've always wanted to try making this toffee since it just sounds so delicious.
