Saltine Cracker Candy
I found a book called The Southern Cookie Book by Southern Living while at the library. I found an interesting recipe in the candy section for saltine cracker candy.
Now I LOVE saltine crackers. My sister and I would eat them by the packfuls when my grandmother brought them home from the store when we were kids. Plain, with peanut butter, or cheese. How can a plain salty cracker be so good? I have no idea, but I thank the gods for inspiring someone in the past to invent crackers.
I got myself sidetracked....I need to stop drooling....darn saltine crackers!
Anywho, I decided to try this recipe and while it came out okay, I think I'll change some things the next time I make them.
1. Don't line the entire pan with crackers. Leave some space between them otherwise when you add the toffee mixture, the crackers will float to the top.
2. Do not use the microwave to melt the butter and brown sugar. My microwave separated the butter and brown sugar, which surprisingly still made a toffee, but I think it might have been better if I melted them in a saucepan on the stove.
3. Leave the chocolate to melt a bit longer on the top before adding the walnuts because they didn't adhere to the chocolate very much.
Otherwise, this was delicious recipe that I will definitely try again in the future. The chocolate/toffee flavor is perfect for the fall or winter!!
If you see this book, please pick it up and try some recipes!!
Until next time >___<
