Saltine Toffee Cookies

My dear friends Ryan and Mark introduced me to this fabulous dessert cobbled together out of pantry staples: Saltine Toffee Cookies.

Start by melting brown sugar and butter until it becomes a thick, bubbling mess.

Ryan did all the work; I just photographed.

See? Thick, bubbly mess.

Then you line a pan with foil sprayed with cooking spray and place saltine crackers side by side. Pour the toffee over the crackers and spread evenly, then put in the oven to bake.

Once the toffee has set, pour chocolate chips on top and spread as they melt (which by the way, is really, really fun).

Sprinkle with nuts if you so choose, then put the entire pan in the freezer until the chocolate hardens. Then it's ready to enjoy!

The final effect is this magical combination of salt and chocolate, chewy and hard; it has a really fabulous texture. Can you believe how easy that is? And inventive? Seriously, try it.

ZOMG, I definitely am trying this one. Justin's a textbook salty/sweet-o-phile, and this sounds right up his alley. And it looks easy as pie, which makes it right up MY alley.
