Praline Chocolate Crunch

 
This unbelievably simple recipe is my family’s most favorite candy! You can make variations of it by substituting graham crackers for the saltines and M&M’s for the toffee bits.

40 Saltine Crackers (use the salted ones)
1 cup unsalted butter, no substitutions please
1/4 teaspoon iodized salt
1 cup packed light brown sugar
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits (I use Heath Bits ‘O Brickle Toffee Bits)

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place saltines side by side in bottom of pan. In a medium saucepan, bring butter, brown sugar and salt to a full rolling boil (that’s when stirring won’t stop the mixture from boiling even in the middle of the pan). Boil 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour praline sauce over saltines. Quickly spread sauce with a spoon over all saltines. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over crackers. Wait 5 minutes, and spread melted chocolate chips over surface of crackers with a knife. Sprinkle evenly with toffee bits, and gently press into chocolate. Freeze until hard. Break into pieces. Store in zip-top plastic bags in freezer. Hide your personal stash behind the peas so no one will find it! Makes about 24 pieces. Enjoy!
