If you need a quick dessert, this is the way to go! These bars don’t have very many ingredients and they taste delicious. Even someone who doesn’t have a lot of baking experience could make these.
The crackers and chocolate toffee layers make a really yummy sweet and salty treat.
Here’s all you need.
(But before you start, turn your oven on to 350° F.)
Some recipes call for saltines, but we didn’t have enough. So we used club crackers from Aldi.
(Kristen’s note: the recipe is made for a jelly roll pan, but we have half sheet pans and those are bigger. So, our crackers didn’t fill up the whole pan.)
In a saucepan, bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil. Boil and stir it for 3 minutes. This smelled delicious and I could hardly wait for the bars to be done!
Pour the toffee over the crackers.
Spread evenly. We started out with a spatula but switched to a knife because the spatula wasn’t very easy.
The toffee will start to get harder pretty fast, so spread it quickly.
Bake the bars for 6-8 minutes, or until the toffee is bubbly.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the toffee.
Let the bars sit for 2-3 minutes, or until the chocolate chips are soft. Then spread the melted chocolate chips evenly over the toffee.
Put the pan in the freezer or the refrigerator until the chocolate is hardened.
When the chocolate is hard, cut the bars into rectangles, or you can break them into chunks.
If your house is warm, you might want to keep these in the refrigerator so that the chocolate won’t get too soft. Or if you want to save them for later, you can store them in the freezer.
Chocolate Toffee Cracker Bars
12 whole Club crackers (each with four sections)
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 °.
Place crackers onto a rimmed baking sheet.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar. Stir and bring to boil; boil for 3 minutes.
Pour over crackers; quickly spread evenly. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until toffee is bubbly.
Remove from oven; sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over toffee. Let stand for 2-3 minutes, or until chocolate chips are softened. Spread chocolate chips evenly over toffee layer.
Place bars in the freezer or refrigerator to harden chocolate. Once chocolate is hardened, cut into bars, or break into irregular chunks.
Store in an airtight container. Refrigerate during warm weather or freeze in an airtight bag for later use.
