Step 1

Heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

Line 12x17 cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Layer the saltine crackers on top of the foil.

Heat butter and sugar on stovetop and heat until boiling. Reduce heat to simmering, and simmer uncovered for 3-4 minutes, or until it thickens and the sugar is dissolved.

Pour butter and sugar mixture over crackers and spread evenly.

Bake 5-6 minutes in oven. Remove pan from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes, then sprinkle with chocolate chips.

As chocolate chips melt, carefully spread into an even layer over the toffee layer.

Let cool completely (can refrigerate to cool more quickly). Break into bite-sized pieces and serve. . . yum!

Store covered.

Cook's note:

I have made a similar recipes before. You can make it with graham crackers also, but we have taste tested and can’t really tell much of a difference (I know that’s hard to believe). My recipe also adds some pecans to the top after you get the chocolate to melt. They are really great. It was the only thing people wanted me to bring to parties for quite a while. Think I will make some too.

My daughter in law made this with pretzels on the bottom…. DELISH! I’m getting ready to make it and can’t decide what to use as a base.. :-/

After spreading the chocolate, while it was still warm, I sprinkled Heath English Toffee Bits over the top.
