Easy Saltine Pecan Toffee



35 to 40 squares saltine crackers (approximately 2 sleeves)
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the crackers in a single layer, covering the baking sheet.
In a saucepan, combine the butter and sugar. Stirring frequently, bring the mixture to a boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately pour over the saltines, spread it to the edges to evenly coat. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Allow to cool on the counter for 5 minutes, then spread the melted chocolate chips evenly across the toffee. Top with chopped pecans and allow to cool completely before breaking into toffee pieces.

My grandkids help me make this every December. They love seeing plain saltines turned into a favorite candy, and I love the low cost and simplicity!
