Five simple ingredients and in no time you have candy. Yesterday a friend under the weather told me that British toffee would really make them feel better, so I made this and delivered my version of British penicillin – just what the doctor ordered.
36 saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped and roasted
Line a 10-inch x 15-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to come over the edges for an inch or more to allow for easy removal. Place crackers on the foil. Melt butter and sugar; boil for three minutes; pour evenly over the crackers in the pan. You can spread around with a spoon. Bake for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Wait 5 minutes then spread chips to cover the crackers. Sprinkle with pecans. Refrigerate for two hours. Lift foil, removing candy from pan; slice into pieces. Store in sealed container.
