We call this "Magic Toffee Brittle". The recipe has been around forever, but it seems like a lot of people have never heard of it. I get requests for this every Christmas and always get asked for the recipe at parties. It is SOOO easy it is almost embarrassing to tell people how to make it after watching them trying to figure out what is in it. I make 2 changes - use club crackers (about 40 covers the bottom of a large rimmed cookie sheet) instead of saltines for more richness and use chopped pecans on the top. Be sure and cook long enough in the oven or they will be chewy instead of crisp.


I agree that the butter and the light brown sugar should be increased to a cup each to make enough toffee mixture.


This was wonderful however after trying it the first time I realized that there wasn't enough of the toffee topping so increased the amount by 1/2 the next time and they were terrific. I also found that if I separated them before they hardened I was able to maintain the nice neat square shape. Everyone raved about this recipe and asked for copies so it tasted great.
