    Toffee is one of my all-time favorite treats too. Not only is it delicious, it looks lovely and inviting.
    I’m planning to make your amazing version of this treat following your recipe precisely. Erin, thank you so much for such detailed instructions and sharing the secrets to the best saltine toffee. Learned so much new info. The day wasn’t a loss.
    Look forward to your new ideas. Keep it up!

    I love this recipe so much that I have made it twice this week! I halved the recipe both times and used 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of light brown sugar. The first time, I boiled the mixture for the full 3 minutes, and it was definitely too long. It became too firm and was hard to spread over the crackers, and although it didn’t scorch, I felt like it tasted slightly burned (my sister said I was imagining it, ha!). The second time around, I only boiled it for 1.5 minutes, and it was much better! Overall, this is a great recipe. Thanks so much for sharing:)

  3. What am i doing wrong, my chocolate chips won’t melt? I’m not getting creamy shiny chocolate that is spreadable on top.

    • I’ve never heard of this before, Grace. I use Nestle Chocolate Chips and they melt just fine. How soon after you take them out of the oven are you putting the chocolate on? Make sure the toffee/crackers are still warm.

  4. Hi! Is there any reason I cant use milk chocolate chips on top? i noticed you said only semi-sweet or dark. Thanks 🙂
