Saltine Toffee

This stuff has been around a good while, but I was reminded of how good it is the other day at someone's retirement/holiday party. I believe some people call it "bark" or something. Anyway, one bite and it's all over but the crying. You'll go back and keep picking up pieces until you get disgusted with yourself for being such a p-i-g hog. Plus there's an infinite number alternative ingredients to consider... think bite -size pretzels instead of saltines. And the recipe couldn't be much easier. Of course, anything that calls for a entire cup of butter and brown sugar might make your skin crawl, but you're only going to eat one piece... right?

  1. You got a recipe? My grandmother always made white chocolate bark with broken stick pretzels and Spanish peanuts...awesome and easy. But I LOVE toffee so please share!

    1. Amen sista. That stuff is wicked.

        1. re: hotoynoodle

          Is it safe to assume this can be done with white chocolate?

            oh, for sure.

            i usually make it with dark chocolate and you can glam it up with m&m's, crushed nuts, colored jimmies, etc.

        2. I saw this on Trisha Yearwood's show and had to make them. She calls them Sweet and Saltines.

          1. Made a batch this week for the office. We call it Christmas crack, or just "the stuff."
