Recipe: Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bark

This has got to be the easiest yummy dessert I've ever made. It took me like 20 minutes and was SO good!

You'll Need:
-Saltine crackers (amount will vary depending on the size of your pan. It took one and a half sleeves to cover my jelly roll pan)
-1 stick of butter + 1 tsp butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-3 cups chocolate chips
-1 cup Heath bar pieces

Step 1: Preheat your oven for 400 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper with 1 tsp butter. Line the paper with saltine crackers (to achieve maximum salty/sweet flavor, place the crackers salt side down).

Step 2: In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and then immediately remove from heat. Continue mixing until combined. Pour mixture over the crackers and carefully spread with a spatula.

Step 3: Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the hot caramel. Wait about three minutes for the chips to soften.

Step 4: Spread the melted chips over the entire pan with your spatula. Sprinkle melted chocolate with the Heath bar pieces. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 5: lift the hardened slab out of the pan by the parchment paper. Using a large, flat knife, cut the bark into bars or small bite sized pieces. Enjoy!

I packed these up to give out with Christmas presents. If you need a last minute little something extra, these are so easy and are made using (mostly) pantry staple ingredients.
