White Trash Toffee

White Trash Toffee

Adapted from Tory Haljun


  1. 40 saltine crackers
    1 cup light brown sugar, packed
    1 cup unsalted butter
    12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
    1/4 cup roasted almonds, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Place the saltines side by side on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the butter and sugar just to a boil and cook for about 3 minutes, until thicker, but not until it becomes caramel.
  4. Pour butter and sugar mixture over saltines, and place in oven for 3 minutes, or until very bubbly.
  5. Sprinkle chocolate chips all over the saltine mess, and place back in the oven for 1 minute.
  6. Remove from the oven. Using an offset spatula, spread chocolate evenly over the saltines. Sprinkle lightly with chopped almonds.
  7. Allow to cool. Place cookie sheet in freezer for about an hour to set. Once hardened, remove and break into rustic pieces.
