Toffee Bark Candy Recipe

With the holiday season upon us, I usually find myself in the kitchen more often than any other time of year. I have dusted off a favorite of mine: Toffee Bark Candy recipe. This is easy to make, fun to share and is an excellent idea for small gifts. Simply wrap in colorful cellophane bags, and tie with curling ribbon. Your postal delivery worker, child's teacher, or anyone else that deserves special recognition will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Toffee Bark Candy ingredients:
  • 1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 c brown sugar

  • 2 sticks butter

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 40 Saltine or Graham crackers, or 1 sleeve Keebler Club crackers (I use the
    Club crackers)

  • Coarsely chopped nuts (cashews or peanuts), if desired

  • Hershey's Toffee baking pieces, if desired

Instructions for making Toffee Bark Candy:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

  2. Line cookie sheet with tin foil, and then mist lightly with cooking

  3. Line with a single layer of crackers

  4. Melt butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring frequently.

  5. 5. Bring mixture to a "foamy" boil, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.

  6. 6. Pour mixture evenly over crackers and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees

  7. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the mixture and allow to melt. Spread evenly
    (if desired, add chopped nuts and/or toffee baking pieces)

  8. Refrigerate the Toffee Bark Candy until chocolate is firm.
