Step 4: Bake for a few minutes, until bubbly.

Step 5: Sprinkle chocolate chips (semi sweet) over the top of the toffee covered ritz crackers.

Allow the chocolate chips to set for a few minutes to melt, then use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate out evenly.

Step 6: Place the ritz toffee in the fridge or freezer for an hour or two, until hardened.

Use your hands to break the toffee into pieces.

Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight ziploc bag for best texture.

Well, I’m on my fourth pan now. It’s pretty incredible! I suppose I should have shared more than just the one pan that I managed to force myself to share. Maybe next time. ;)
