Saltine Crackers are Called to a Higher Purpose

When I got married my parents gave me a cookbook with all my favorite family recipes in it and it’s one of my most cherished wedding gifts.  Every time I make something from it memories from some part of my life flood back to me .  They even got my grandparents to put recipes in it that they used to make.  One of my favorite things to make from it is a recipe for cracker toffee bars.  I try not to make it too often because there is not one ounce of anything healthy in it (two sticks of butter?  Yikes!).  But, oh, these bars sure are tasty, and cheap, and easy.  If only they could make chocolate, butter, and sugar without any calories…

Cracker Toffee Bars

Line a 10x15x1 inch pan with foil  LIne foil with saltine crackers.  Mix together and boil for 3 minutes, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup butter (not margarine).  Pour over crackers and bake at 375* for 5 minutes or until crackers float.  Remove from oven and cool just a little.  Spread with a 12 ounce package of milk chocolate chips.  Sprinkle with nuts (1/2 cup).  Cut into squares before set.
