Terri's Toffee

Wish I'd Done That: Iron and lay out all of the Sunday clothes on Saturday night. Gather all your Bibles, offering, shoes, etc. together. It makes Sunday morning so much more pleasant if you don't have to scramble around.

For a quick treat, or if you need a dessert to take somewhere quick, you can't beat this one. I'll bet you've got everything in the pantry right now. They are quick and fabulous!
Terri's Toffee
1 C butter (don't substitute oleo, either!)
1 C brown sugar (either dark or light)
Boil these two together for 3 minutes.
Line a jelly roll pan with saltines. (You may also use graham crackers or club crackers. I think chocolate grahams would be great, too, but I've never tried those....)
Pour the butter mixture over the crackers.
Bake at 400 degrees for 5 - 6 minutes.
Take out of the oven and top with 1 package of chocolate chips. I used semi sweet, but you could use dark or whatever.
Let the chips sit on the crackers for 5 minutes and then spread the chocolate out.
Sprinkle with 3/4 C chopped pecans or whatever nuts you want.
Chill. Break apart and serve. Yummy

Thanks to Pam for bringing these last week to the tailgate. Remember, if you make them, be sure to take them somewhere to serve or you won't be able to stay out of them......

Have a great weekend! Tulsa plays at home again, and my kid at U of Arkansas is coming home! Yea!
