It's Football Friday everyone!
Last week was Auburn's bye week, so I took a week off as well, but I am back today with a scrumptious sweet treat!
I got this recipe from last year's Gifted event. Part of the event included a desserts section where women within the ministry provided a favorite recipe and shared it at the event. Because I was running around like a crazy person, I was only able to try a tiny bit, but grabbed the recipe and have been itching to make it ever since. It is the perfect sweet snack for watching a football game, but would also be great to wrap in a cute box or jar and give for a Christmas gift. It is really easy and only takes about 10 min. to prepare which makes it even better!
Auburn plays the Georgia Bulldogs tomorrow at 2:30! We will be enjoying this treat and hopefully cheering our team to victory!
Tousle the Bulldogs Saltine Toffee
1 1/2 to 2 sleeves saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 c. brown sugar
16 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. finely chopped pecans
Cover a large cookie sheet with foil and spray with Pam. Cover pan completely with Saltine crackers in a single layer. Break crackers if needed to fill in around the edges of the pan. Simmer butter and brown sugar in a saucepan on medium-low heat for 5-7 min, stirring constantly. Mixture should be foamy. Drizzle the sugar mixture over saltines, covering well, and bake at 350* for 10 min. Remove from oven. Pour chocolate chips evenly on top and spread while they melt. Sprinkle with pecans. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
