Recettes Secrètes: Norm's Saltine Candy

The best thing I consumed during 2009's holiday party season was easily Norman Korpi's incredibly addictive homemade salty-sweet toffee candy. The secret crunch to this brittle? Why a Saltine cracker, of course! I had to ask for the recipe, and what do you know, he shared it. Break your New Year's resolution and enjoy!
Oh Lordy
The secret family recipe. Pressure.

Cup of brown sugar packed and cup of real butter.
Melt on stove together at med until a low boil. Then time 3 minutes at a boil. Always stirring to make the toffee - it will burn if you don't stir.

Have baking dish (like 9 x 13) with tin foil laid with Saltine crackers covering the foil.

When the 3 minutes are up pour the hot bubbling toffee onto all the crackers.

Have the oven preheated to 450.
Place the crackers and toffee in the oven for 5 minutes.

Pull out and then cover with bag of chocolate chips. Soon the chips will get soft and then smooth and spread the chocolate out. Then place in the refrigerator to set for an hour or more.
When hard, take out and peel away the foil and crack.

Take out of house asap or give away or you'll eat the whole thing an get sick.
