time for a little something sweet

Well hello there again! Its Sam from last week and I'm back to share a yummy, sweet treat of mine - toffee!! I LOVE to bake (almost) anything and obtained this super simple recipe a few years ago.  I now make it every holiday season and its a huge hit!

WARNING : this is highly addictive stuff

16x12x1 pan (also called a jelly roll pan)
aluminum foil
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3 sticks of butter (I said it was yummy, not healthy)
graham crackers
24 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips

Line your pan with foil and heat oven to 350

Cover the bottom of the pan with graham crackers (took about 1 1/2 pkgs) 

Melt butter and brown sugar and bring to boil while stirring, let boil for 3 to 4 minutes as you stir (don't stop stirring or you may burn it - that's not good)

Pour butter/sugar mixture over graham crackers and smooth out evenly with back of spoon

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes (it will be bubbly)

Remove from oven and immediately pour chocolate on top

Again with your spoon, spread the chocolate evenly (it will melt quickly)

Once chocolate is all melted, refridgerate at least 3 hours or overnight (this is best)

When you are ready to eat (or share it with those you love), FIRST remove the foil from the back of the toffee, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, THEN break the toffee into small pieces. If you break the toffee before removing the foil, you will either eat the foil or spend the day removing the tiny bits of foil from your toffee treat, PLEASE remove the foil first!!! (Don't learn this lesson the hard way)

Keep refridgerated until ready to serve and refridgerate leftovers (if any)!!

Enjoy your toffee with some warm cider, hot cocoa or sneak a piece in the middle of the night (its addicting, remember?)

happy baking!
