Chocolate toffee crack for #SundaySupper
  • Saltine crackers (I used 51 exactly in my recipe)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 ounces dark chocolate***
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12x17 inch jelly roll sheet pan with tin foil.
  2. Arrange saltine crackers, salt side up, across the lined pan in even rows, covering the entire pan. Pack them as tightly as possible, but don't overlap. I typically have to break a few crackers in half to fill in the spaces on one side of the pan. Set pan aside.
  3. If you are using a chocolate bar, use a knife to chop the chocolate into small pieces, about the size of chocolate chips. Set aside.
  4. In a medium sauce pan, heat the butter over medium heat until melted. Stir frequently with a spatula during this process. When the butter is melted, add the dark brown sugar and stir to combine. Continue to cook the mixture for about 5 minutes, until it is bubbly and dark brown in color.
  5. Pour butter and brown sugar mixture evenly over the top of the pan of saltine crackers. Use the spatula to spread it evenly across the pan, covering each of the crackers.
  6. Place the tray of saltines in the oven and bake for 5 minutes, until the butter mixture on top begins to bubble. Remove from the oven and sprinkle evenly with the chocolate pieces, allowing the heat to melt them. You can also pop the tray back into the oven for 1 minute to speed the process up. When the chocolate is melty, use the spatula to spread it evenly across the pan.
  7. Place the finished tray of chocolate toffee crack into the refrigerator to set/harden (at least a few hours). Remove from the pan, peel away the tin foil, and break apart to serve. You can also use a sharp knife to slice the candy into even squares if you don't want to break apart pieces unevenly. Enjoy!
The higher the quality of dark chocolate you use, the more over the top amazing the toffee will taste. I used a 12oz bar of Scharffen Berger chocolate and ½ a bag of Hershey's dark chocolate chips for mine.
