-40 saltine crackers
-1 cup (2 sticks) butter
-1 cup brown sugar
-2 cups chocolate chips of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 10x15 inch pan and cover with saltine crackers by laying them side by side over the entire surface. You may need to overlap a few of the crackers, but that isn't a problem. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, add the brown sugar and bring mixture to a boil. Boil for about five minutes or until a nice think consistency forms. Pour hot toffee over crackers and spread evenly to cover the entire pan. Bake for 5 minutes. Allow toffee to cool for about 15 minutes. Once again, melt chocolate chips (I usually use milk chocolate, but this time I used semi-sweet... both have great results and I think that dark chocolate would be great as well) over low heat, stirring constantly. If you are worried about burning the chocolate, use a double boiler. Once chocolate is melted, pour over toffee and spread evenly over entire surface. Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator. Once toffee is cooled, it is easy to pop out of the pan, thanks to all that butter! Squares can be cut using a sharp knife or or pizza cutter, but I prefer to just break them into different size pieces with my hands.
