Saltine Toffee Cookies
As my mom usually makes a version of these for holidays, I absolutely LOVE this type of cookie/candy/whatevertheheck category this addicting sweet falls under. As I had some time this afternoon, I embarked upon the task of recreating it myself, holidays-be-damned!
So. I used the cheap, store-brand saltines (Stoppies, in my case, perfectly fine sub, and tasty in soup as well), semi-sweet chips, dark brown sugar, salted butter, and a disposable cookie sheet, sprayed with some, again, store-brand version of Pam. Save some money where you can. :)
I followed the directions here and the tips. Most people said DO NOT STIR your butter/brown sugar deliciousness while it is bubbling about on the stove. I did take that to heart (even if I did want to stir!) and let it go, then poured it over my lovingly laid out crackers, then, yep, to the oven.
Where, said delicious concoction overflowed my flimsy baking sheet and set off my smoke alarm. Small annoyance. Plinked the battery out of the smoke alarm. Shook my fist at the stove. Gah.
Anyhow, all ended well. From oven, chips, spread, threw a few nuts about, fridge.
Chewy, delicious goodness. My end product had a bit more "chew" to it than my Mom's does (hers is brittle), so I may not have cooked the toffee enough.
I don't care though, its darn good!! Gonna share with my co-workers tomorrow. Everyone needs a pick-up on a Monday. :)
