cracker toffee bark
- 2 Cups white sugar
- 16 oz unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
- 1/4 Cup water
- candy thermometer (optional)
- 24 saltine crackers of your choice (I use Stone Ground wheat crackers from Trader Joe’s)
- 8 ounces dark chocolate (use chips or chop up a bar of good quality chocolate)
- Line two 8in baking sheets with wax paper and lay out the crackers on the bottom of the pan. Set the crackers aside.
- In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and butter and place over medium heat. Using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture until the sugar and butter have melted.
- Continue to stir the mixture until it comes to a boil (this will take 5-10minutes). Be very careful with the boiling candy, sugar burns are no fun!
- Turn the heat down to medium and patiently stir the mixture until it has turned a light to medium brown color (be patient, this could take 20-30minutes). If you have a candy thermometer, you are looking for 305 degrees.
- Once the toffee registers 305 degrees CAREFULLY pour the hot toffee over the crackers and use your rubber spatula to spread the toffee evenly over the crackers.
- Top the toffee right away with the chocolate so the heat from the toffee can melt the chips.
- Use your rubber spatula to spread the chocolate over the toffee in an even layer.
- While the chocolate is still wet, top with sea salt and sliced almonds.
- Put the tray in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden (about 30 minutes).
- Once the chocolate is hardened, break up the bark into pieces and serve on a festive plate.
