Cracked up (again)

Well, it's that time of the year again... Christmas Crack time!! I discovered this recipe last year, and it became a full on addiction for me. This year I thought it would be fun to try some different flavors and toppings.  So far I have made Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Cherry, Dark Chocolate Mint (oh so yummy) and crack topped with toffee and peppermint Andes Mints. If I gain 20 pounds this holiday season, it's all due to this one simple recipe.

If you need the recipe again, here it is...

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
40 saltines crackers

Preheat the oven to 350. Line your jelly roll pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Lay a flat layer of crackers on your pan. Melt sugar and butter together until it reaches a boil. Reduce to a shimmer and cook for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and all the sugar is dissolved. Pour the mixture over the crackers and spread evenly. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the toffee becomes bubbly. Remove from oven and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffee. Let sit a few minutes and then spread melted chips over the toffee. To make the flavors I used 1 cup of the chocolate chips and 1 cup of the flavored chips. You can also use the chip mixes by Nestle.
