How to make halloween saltine toffee

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line the saltines up in rows.

Step 2: Melt the butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil 2-3 minutes stirring constantly, until thick.

Step 3: Pour the butter/brown sugar mixture over the saltines and spread with a rubber spatula. Bake at 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes, until browned and bubbly.

Step 4: Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Let the chocolate chips sit for 5 minutes, then spread with a rubber spatula evenly across the saltines

Step 5: Top the halloween crack with anything you want! We used eye candies, halloween themed sprinkles, reese’s pieces, and candy corns.
