My recipe for the same calls for only one cup butter, one cup brown sugar, and one bag of chips. The most important thing to remember is to make sure that you bring it to a boil AND THEN set your timer for 3 minutes. My mum still hasn't figured that part out yet. (hers separates in the fridge-- still tasty, but poor texture) Everyone loves it, and it is so very simple! I put mine on cinnamon grahams sometimes... they're a little sweeter. My favourite is still the saltines, though! You can also toss a handful of white chocolate chips on top with the dark chocolate, and swirl... it makes them very pretty. I have relatives who are allergic to nuts, so I just sprinkle holiday jimmies on top, too. Very versatile, and ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! Also of note, try the Reynold's No Stick foil to line your pan! It works with no additional effort! I use it for EVERYTHING!

I made this candy and was excited about how easy it was. Used tin foil and was disappointed when I went to break it up and foil wouldn't come off bottom had to throw the whole thing away! I may try again because it was easy but ill use parchment or spray should add that to recipe!

I have made this recipe for years. I would note that using a 10 X 15 JELLYROLL pan (with sides) is ideal. I use only 1 Cup butter and sugar and 1 pkg chocolate chips. Sprinkle the chips on right after you take it out of the oven, let sit for just a minute to soften the chocolate chips and then using a spatula, spread the chocolate to completly cover the toffee. Then add either nuts, sprinkles or even another flavor baking chips. I use sprinkles for whatever occasion/holiday I am making this for. If using other two kinds of chips, swirl it to give it a marble effect, don't worry about the toffee it can take it!

I absolutely LOVE this recipe. But I only use 1 C butter, 1 C brown sugar, and 1 bag chocolate chips. I like to use milk chocolate chips because it makes the recipe sweeter. I also line the pan with parchment paper, because when you do it with tin foil it sticks to the bottom and if you accidently bite into a piece of tin foil it HURTS!

This tasted fantastic. I used pecans instead of the almonds. I would recommend revising the recipe and add that you need to put a non-stick spray on the foil before you put the crackers down. I had the aluminum foil stick terrible.

I have been making this recipe for years and my family and friends just love it! My recipe calls for 1 cup of butter and 1 cut of brown sugar. To help with the sticking problem, I use the non-stick aluminum foil or lightly spray aluminum foil with a non-stick spray. I have absolutely no problem removing the candy with the prepared foil. Enjoy and make plenty.

My family loved the taste of this. Make sure your crackers fit the whole pan. I had about half a cracker width left, and decided to leave it that way. When I took it out of the oven, my crackers were floating, and swimming around the sheet. I will also add less chocolate chips next time.

I also used the cup of butter and cup of brown sugar. I also leave out the nuts. With this recipe butter is a must. Margarine if you absolutely can't but, never tub margarine. It contains water and ruins just about everything you cook with it.
