Poor Man's Toffee

I can't take credit f or this recipe. Consider it another in my "great recipes of friend's" series. Emily Harris was the first to introduce me to this. Every time I've made since then (3 years ago), it lasts only seconds before complete devouration (is that a word?).

Try it for your next Christmas party. You'll be a hit. I promise.

2 sleeves of ritz crackers
3/4 cup br. sugar
3/4 cup butter
chocolate chips
chopped nuts/sprinkles


Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, lightly spray with pan spray.

Break crackers in half, or thirds, and place on cookie sheet.

Preheat oven to 350.

Bring sugar and butter to boil for 3 minutes --

Pour mixture over crackers -- toss to evenly coat the crackers.

Bake for 5 minutes -- turn oven off.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over crackers and place back in oven to melt chocolate for 3 minutes.

Once melted, spread chocolate over crackers and top with chopped nuts or sprinkles.

Best if cooled completely and then refrigerated and broken up.

Number Of Servings:Lots

Preparation Time:15 minutes?
