Nutty Toffee Bars

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar 
1 sleeve Saltine (or as many as it takes to cover the bottom of your dish)
1 (12-ounce) bag semi-sweet  chocolate chips 
1 cup chopped pecans 


Preheat oven to 400°F. 
Line a 10x15-inch sheet pan with aluminum foil and butter the foil generously 
In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Stir constantly until butter is melted and mixture becomes uniform and is ready to boil (this may take a few minutes). Bring mixture to a steady boil. Once mixture is boiling, set a timer for 3 minutes and then walk away. Do not stir the mixture for the next three minutes - this step is important! You can use this time to lay your crackers in a single layer in the prepared baking pan and prepare your toppings.

Remove the caramel from the heat and pour over the top of the crackers. Use a knife or the back of a spoon to spread the mixture evenly over the crackers. Bake for 5 minutes until the edges begin to bubble and mixture has thickened.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffeed saltines while they are still hot and wait a couple of minutes for them to melt. Spread the chocolate evenly over the toffee. Next, spread coarsely chopped pecans  over the chocolate while still melted, and gently press them into the chocolate.

Place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. When the chocolate layer is no longer shiny and the mixture has hardened, remove from the foil and break into pieces. Keep toffee in a tightly sealed container in a cool place. It won't last long if left out.

  1. Hi Beverly :-) I love the look of these!

    I have tried to link up and despite having a link to your blog the link widget won't allow my link ... anyway, the link is on my blog to your blog so that's fine.

  3. No nuts for me, but I'm sure I can adapt this :) Beverly, if I put on a stone over Christmas I shall know who to blame!! ;)

  4. I'm so glad you shared this recipe, Beverly. My sister had some of these made at Thanksgiving and they were AMAZING! I was going to email her for the recipe, but here it is. They are extremely addictive! Yummmmmmy!!!

    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with the linking problem. I'm in the same boat as Amy. At least I'm in good company. :o)
