Crunchy, chewy, sweet & salty, and so easy to make! With a smothering of chocolate and M&M'S®, this toffee will be the first treat to disappear on any holiday cookie plate.
approximately 1 sleeve soda crackers (enough to cover the pan in one layer)
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup M&M candies for topping
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Prepare a 10.5 x 15.5 jelly roll pan by lining it with parchment paper. Be sure to crease the edges, so that it's easier to lay the crackers in a single layer.
Place the crackers in a flat, single layer on the jelly roll pan. Don't worry about any gaps in between the crackers.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Mix in the brown sugar. Bring to a boil (should be bubbling definitively around the edge-- you shouldn't wonder if it's boiling or not) and set a timer for 3 minutes.
Allow to boil without stirring. After 3 minutes, remove from heat immediately. Pour the mixture over the crackers, and use a spatula to gently spread the toffee over the crackers (it's ok if the crackers get displaced a little, but try to keep them as flat as possible).
Bake toffee-crackers for 6 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Return to oven for 1 minute.
Spread the melted chocolate chips evenly across the toffee with a spatula. Sprinkle M&M'S over top. Let the pan cool at room temperature for a few minutes before placing it in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes, until hardened. Break apart to serve. Store chilled.
Tip: for easier cutting/breaking, remove toffee from the refrigerator after 10 minutes (it should be partially cooled-- the chocolate should be hardened enough that it won't be disturbed by cutting, and soft enough that it's easy to cut) and cut the toffee into small squares. Return to the refrigerator to finish cooling and harden completely.
