I am really into Salted Chocolate goodies. This is an excellent recipe and the only thing I did different was to sprinkle Sea Salt on top of the chocolate....yummmm ...to die for!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy to make, and I already have neighbor asking me for the recipe- Yummy stuff! I had to hide it from my son so my husband and I could have some. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty. Pretty easy to put together and I can see how this can easily be adapted for different flavors with various chocolate chips or other chips that can be melted on top. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this many, many times over the years and my family loves it. We, too, make changes based on the occasion and what we have in the house (the kind of chips we use, the extract or topping, even the kind of crackers. It is a very forgiving recipe as far as candy making goes. Sometimes we rush it and it turns out grainy but the most interesting thing that has happened is when the toffee soaks into the cracker rather than surrounding it. It tastes delicious but I have no idea how to make it happen. Any ideas? item not reviewed by moderator and published
