easy toffee bars
A post a while back over on Beki's blog reminded me of this recipe I had. It's a great treat for the holidays... or anytime, for that matter!
Easy Toffee Bars
Break up graham crackers into the small rectangles, and lay them out tightly on a 10x15 jelly roll-type pan (pan needs to have sides). This takes about half a box of graham crackers.
Melt 2 sticks of butter with 1 c. of brown sugar in a saucepan. Stir constantly & bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, still stirring. Pour over crackers in pan. Bake for 7-9 minutes at 350°.
Sprinkle with 2 cups of chocolate chips (one 12 oz. bag) and let sit a couple of minutes for them to soften. Spread them out like frosting with a knife once they're soft.
Finish with a sprinkle of finely chopped almonds or pecans (I used almonds here.) Let cool. These are easier to remove from the pan when they're not completely cold & hard.
