But I have to admit, things didn’t start out so well.
In fact, there were a few tears and a lot of vaccuuming after attempt number one:
Good bye, new Pyrex baking dish.
My self confidence plummeted after these horrendous results.
But luckily I have strong determination when it comes to making food with peanut butter, chocolate, and candy.
And so I tried again. This time, I used more safe kitchen practices, such as turning off the burner before setting pans on top of it.
And the end result was glorious. Check out those sweet layers! Toffee, saltine, peanut butter, chocolate, and candy. Delicious.
- One sleeve saltines (salted, obvs)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2½ cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
- several spoonfuls of peanut butter
- Chopped candy – pretzel M&M’s, KitKats, etc.
- Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Place saltines in a pan (I used a nonstick cake pan) and leave just a little bit of room between each cracker.
- Bring sugar and butter to a boil. Once the whole thing starts boiling, boil without stirring for 3 minutes. Pour boiling mixture over crackers. Bake for 5 minutes.
- Put small spoonfuls of peanut butter on top of the crackers and toffee. Return to the oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread the melted peanut butter.
- Top with chocolate chips and return to the oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate chips until smooth. Top with chopped candy.
- Freeze for 1 hour (minimum). Break toffee into small pieces and enjoy!
The one and only problem with this toffee is that, without fail, I always end up with chocolate all over my face.
Has anyone else ever shattered a glass pan? This was officially my most significant kitchen mishap. And I hope I never outdo myself…
