back before i was a bonafide chef (jk)…i would literally keep NOTHING in my pantry. when friends and family would come to visit…they were lucky if i’d go stock up on the essentials, such as cheetos and soft batch cookies. oh and frozen pizza. (mama lucia anyone?!) but two things i would always have in stock were saltines…and chocolate chips. both are wonderful snacks for poor and lazy anti-cooks. saltines are also awesome if you ever need to entertain guests by seeing who can eat 6 saltines in one minute! (spoiler alert…YOU CAN’T. scout even tried) ANYWAY…point being that most people already have these ingredients. even people like me. this dessert is more up my alley than those delicious apple dumplings (although i’ve learned how simple a recipe like that really can be…and how impressive)…and are an awesome snack. it makes getting through the work day that much easier knowing these are waiting for me!!
these chocolate toffee crackers are perfect for any party, any get-together, or just for snacking while watching the real housewives. these are your new go-to dessert!
this recipe is as simple as laying out your crackers, boiling the brown sugar and butter, laying on the chocolate chips, and then spreading it all together. let cool and keep in the fridge. they’ll keep for at least 2-3 weeks. they taste especially good cold. delish!
um my mouth is watering. i’m going to have to make these again this weekend!!!
- 1 - 1½ sleeves saltine crackers

- Pour carefully over the crackers.
- Bake at 400 for 5 minutes.
- Cool the crackers for 1-2 minutes then sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
