  1. In a half sheet pan lined with parchment paper, lay out saltine crackers, salt side down, in a single layer. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-size sauce pot, combine sugar, butter and corn syrup. Place over medium heat until butter melts, stirring continuously. Increase to high heat and cook until mixture registers 350 degrees F on a candy thermometer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and carefully pour mixture over saltines, spreading evenly.
  3. Let sit a few minutes and then sprinkle chocolate over toffee. Once chocolate melts, spread in an even layer over toffee. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Freeze until chocolate sets. Once the chocolate is set, break into pieces.

I make this but I do it alittle easier.. I melt the butter in the microwave and when fully melted I add that to my sugar (don't even use corn syurp), stir till well mixed than I pour that mixture over the crackers... I take a spoon and spread to make sure every cracker gets covered than I put that in the oven at 350 degrees for 6 to 7 mins or until it bubbles and gets alittle brown. When that's done I take it out and let it cool. Than I melt the choc chips in the microwave for one min, take out and stir... keep microwaving and mixing in 30 second intervals till all the choc chips are melted. Than I spread that over the cooling crackers. Again.. use a spoon to make sure every cracker is fully covered. Than you can top w/ anything but we like to top ours w/ crushed Health bar pieces. And freeze till it sets. OMG... This is one of the first things gone no matter where I take it and everyone is amazed that it's made w/ crackers.


Oh my goodness! I made this in my parents kitchen just messing around, but it was gone FAST. AND they were breaking off pieces before it was even cooled and coming back for more. Very easy, this one is going in my recipe file!


This recipe is phenomenal. I've made toffee without the saltines and there is something about those crackers that makes them go faster then my "regular" toffee. I do them in batches using 35 saltines 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter and 1 bag of Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips. I use vanilla instead of corn syrup and add my nutt of choice. SCRUMPTIOUS!
