Saltine Cracker Toffee

I am a little obsessed with sweet and salty combinations. I blame Gal in the Middle for my love of this saltine cracker toffee. I can remember in college running through McDonald’s for fries and Wendy’s for a frosty and eating the frosty with the fries when I had been through an exceptionally long day. So, this 4 ingredient toffee that combines sweet and salt had to be banned from my house.

I popped the pan in the fridge to speed up the hardening process. Once the chocolate is hard to the touch, break apart with your hand. The pieces will break into random shapes in sizes. Then give it all away. Trust me. Don’t make this unless you have a dozen people to share with immediately.
