Roommate Lauren’s friend Amanda (who is my friend too I might add) made toffee for her right before Christmas. I had a sample (read: I ate most of it) and found it to be the perfect most delicious thing ever created. While that may be a slight exaggeration, this toffee does have the addictive power of crack cocaine. Once I got the recipe from Amanda, I vowed to make it in the new year.
Amanda got the recipe from her friend Sarah who is apparently an amazing cook. Sarah lives in Winston-Salem and went to business school with Amanda’s husband. She is currently going to medical school … so obviously she’s dumb. Sarah, I have never met you but you make delicious things, get lots of smart degrees and have good taste in friends. Can we be besties?
Homemade Heath Bars
(known to me as Toffee Crack)
1 sleeve saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 C. sugar
1 (12 oz.) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Line a baking sheet with foil and place crackers end to end across the foil to cover the sheet.
- Bring butter and sugar to a boil and stir for 3 minutes.
- Pour this mixture over the saltines and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until butter mixture browns.
- Remove from oven and spread chocolate chips on top.
- As the chips melt, spread with a spatula.
- Allow to cool completely and then break into pieces.
Easy enough, right? Make these. Make them soon.
