IMG_1D6D2A12EFD3-1Hellooooo homemade caramelly goodness that’s known as toffee!

I’ve been obsessed with making homemade toffee for the last three months, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this post! #ShameOnYouKell
IMG_CD50B6377016-1 IMG_E117210B58AA-1IMG_7B2B053EC42A-1 I first made saltine toffee during Christmas time, and it became known as Christmas crack. But then I started making it for other occasions, my favorite being “let’s make a dessert really fast so we can sit down and watch the new episode of ‘How To Get Away With Murder.’” 

Yeah, it’s safe to say I’m obsessed with this dessert. It’s become my new go-to dessert. The saltine crackers add the perfect amount of salt, and the brown sugar/butter mixture creates the greatest buttery-caramelly crunch.

This homemade toffee only requires five ingredients – saltine crackers, butter, brown sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and chopped almonds.

It’s so stinkin’ easy, it’s not even fair. And most importantly, it’s such a hit with everyone! I’ve never had someone dislike this toffee (and it’s super fun too because most people are shocked to find out there are saltine crackers involved in this beautiful creation).

First things first, line a baking pan with parchment paper and lay down saltine crackers in an even layer.

Then you’ll mix the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan, bring it to a boil, and stir for three minutes. This is what creates the “hard crack” stage of the toffee!

Next you’ll pour the caramelly mixture over the saltine crackers, and place the entire pan in the oven for 7 minutes at 350 degrees.IMG_C030E9D28898-1

Once it’s out of the oven, spread semi-sweet chocolate chips on top. And for the final touches, you’ll sprinkle some almonds over the top. Finally, place in the fridge for about 1 hour (or the freezer for about 20 minutes), break into pieces, and enjoy!
