Saltine Cracker Chocolate Toffee Bars (AKA Christmas Crack) Recipe

Looks good, huh? Oh, it is!
This is a sweet little dessert that I like to make every so often. Around the holidays, I call it "Christmas Crack"--- Yes, it is that good!
Year round, I call it Cracker Toffee Bars

Preheat oven to 400F...
Line a greased cookie tray that has sides with saltines crackers.

Add a mixture of 1 cup dark brown sugar and 2 sticks of butter into heavy bottomed sauce pan. Melt on stove together over medium heat, bring up to boil and allow boil for 3 min (time is important- too little and you'll glue your teeth together, too much and it gets rock hard).

Pour this toffee mixture over crackers.

Bake for 5 min. Remove from oven.

Spread 3 cups (one bag) of chocolate chips on top. (I use Ghirardelli semi-sweet)
Return to oven for 1 minute to melt chips.

Remove again, Spread chocolate evenly with spatula.

Add toppings of your choice.
Suggested toppings: macadamia nuts, peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pretzels, m&ms, popcorn, craisins, other dried fruits, toasted coconut, marshmallows, crushed peppermint, any crushed candy bar you please.
I STRONGLY suggest always adding some sea salt directly on top of chocolate (it keeps it from being too sweet).

Cool in the fridge for 15- 20 minutes.
Break apart or cut into bars and serve!
It is almost foolproof (yay) and the flavor combinations are endless!
