Tut's Toffee Recipe from Kim Bender

Hello Friends! 

This past Saturday, we had an all day pot-luck crop at the store.  Everyone brought a dish to share.  Kim had brought a delightful snack called Tut's Toffee.  Many of the girls had asked for the recipe and luckily, Kim has just sent it to me.  It's really simple, and absolutely delicious!  Oh, it melts in your mouth!!!

  • Regular saltine crackers (about a sleeve and a half)
  • 2 sticks BUTTER
  • 2 cups brown sugar (may require a bit more)
  • 12 oz. (minimum) semi-sweet OR milk chocolate chips (I buy the larger bag but have some leftover. Easier coverage with more.)
  • 2 small pkgs of chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line an entire baking sheet (with sides) with saltines. You will need to break in half saltines for one long edge and one short edge.....they don't have to be perfect.
  3. Melt butter and brown sugar together in a double boiler adding brown sugar as needed if the butter is too runny. Stir often.
  4. Pour melted butter and brown sugar mixture over saltines covering EVERY part of them. Crackers may shift a bit......that is normal.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes until bubbly.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately pour chocolate chips on top and they will begin to melt. Spread melting chocolate over entire layer of saltines with a spatula.
  7. Sprinkle nuts on top. I press the nuts into the chocolate a bit so they "stick."
  8. Cool on countertop 15 minutes and then place in refrigerator to chill a few hours or overnight.
  9. With a round-tipped knife gently work an edge of the chilled toffee loose and break into bite-sized pieces.
  10. ENJOY!
A Big Thanks to Kim B. for sharing this delicious recipe with us!
