i just had to try it before i even left a comment! it's cooling in the fridge now, but i may have done something wrong; the toffee that ended up under the crackers while in the oven is pretty dark. I'm concerned. :.(

I'm glad so many of you found this useful.  Yay sharing! 

And BrookOwens, don't worry about offending me.  I put that picture up so people wouldn't be freaked out by how weird/ghetto it looks when it comes out of the oven!

This is absolutely FANTASTIC!  I love how simple it is and how yummy it looks, and how at first I was thinking "um, saltines?"

I bet it's delicious.  Thank you so much for sharing!

Yes, it does have to be butter to make toffee.  Margarine will NOT do it.  Too much water, not enough fat content

My family goes nuts for these.  We call them chocolate soda crackers.  They are the best!

I always use real butter - can usually find a a good price this time of year, and hate to skimp too much if it's a gift (can always buy generic brown sugar, choc chips, etc).  I usually sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top right after I get them out of the oven (and shift back into place, of course).

I LOVE to use tiny leftover pieces in oatmeal cookies.

Leftovers?!?  There's no such thing in our house.  I have to be careful not to make this too often because it is seriously addictive!!  Our version is called Fool's Toffee - as in it's toffee, but it fools you because you'd never know there's saltines in it!

I've seen a similar recipe, but with matzo instead of the saltines.  I like yours better.  It seems to have less sugar/butter but still make lots of toffee...I will definitely put this on my list for next year; thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
