My mother in law is celiac so rather than saltines we used a gluten free cracker - Mary's Gone Crackers Original Seed Crackers. Those are a rice based cracker loaded with sesame seeds. Unfortunately I had bought them in bulk from Costco and then found out that no one, especially my mother in law, likes them. (Sorry Mary's...  Undecided ) When I saw this recipe I thought maybe covering them with sugar and chocolate would help.

Shocked OMG Shocked
The sesame seeds give it an almost scorched taste. Not so bad that it's yucky, but rather just enough that it is delicious! We made two batches of the stuff and they lasted about a week.

Ok, a couple of days, not a week, but there were 6 of us!

well i finally got around to making these with the cheez-its. while they were every bit as tasty and addictive as the ones made with saltines, i think I like the saltines version better.  because the cheez-its were so thin they didnt soak up as much of the toffee stuff as the saltines did.  again, i could eat the whole pan in one sitting, but nuthin beats the original imo.

I've made this 3 times in the past 2 weeks. The first two times I used regular ritz type crackers and I did not like it. The first batch was okay though. The second batch I used margerine, and it was awful. Third batch I'm taking to a party tonight. I used saltines and butter and it came out PERFECT. I think it will be a huge success.

Well, according to wikipedia:
A saltine or soda cracker is a thin, usually square cracker made from white flour, shortening, yeast, and baking soda, with some varieties lightly sprinkled with coarse salt. It has perforations throughout its surface, to allow steam to escape for uniform rising, and along the edges, as individual crackers are broken from larger sheets during manufacture. It has a very dry and crisp texture, as it is made with less shortening than varieties such as Ritz crackers.

Here is the article, which has a picture of them:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saltines

Hope this helps!

hmm.. I think I overcooked the sugar mixture, it is much much darker than yours.... Maybe I should try light brown sugar.  Still looks good tho

Ohman are these good! I added caramel morsels at the same time as I added the chocolate because I halved the recipe and didn't end up with enough toffee to quite cover the crackers-- very tasty.
Thanks so much for the recipe.
