Sweet. Salty. Smooth. Crunchy. Easy. YUM!

Okay, so the original recipe is really called Terribly Terrific Toffee and you can find it here. This treat goes together in about half an hour, and who doesn't have an extra 30 minutes the week before Christmas to whip up something scrumptious?

My husband helped with this part. Line a cookie sheet with foil,
coat with cooking spray and cover with a layer of saltines.
Bring a cup of butter and a cup of brown sugar to a boil, then cook
and stir for 6 to 8 minutes.
I forgot to try to capture pouring the brown sugar/butter mixture on the
saltines. Not sure how I would have done that anyway. Here's the pan
in the oven, baking at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. 
Let the pan cool for a couple minutes, then sprinkle two cups of chocolate
chips atop the bubbling toffee. I put mine back in the oven for a minute
to hasten the melting of the chocolate procedure.
Cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or so, then gently break into chunks.

After I made this recipe and a batch of fudge but before I made the pizza, I carved out some time to use the elliptical. Wouldn't you know that would be the same time my wi-fi went down? Grrr. I took the Nook with me anyway and just read while I worked out. Ended up doing 40 minutes, after I told myself 30 would be enough. Yay me!

That looks awesome! I've heard about this a few places recently, now that I've got your instructions in my hands I'm going for it!
