ghetto toffee

Like salted caramel heaven, but wayyy easier. This stuff is dangerous, yo.

Ghetto Toffee
Adapted from NYT

36 saltine crackers
1 c sugar
1/2 lb butter (2 sticks!)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 c pecans, toasted and chopped

Heat oven to 350 F.

Line a broiler pan or something with a lip with foil. Tile the crackers over the surface of the pan.

In a pot, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir, stir, stir. When it starts to bubble, continue to cook for 2-3 minutes more.

Kill the heat, stir in the vanilla. Pour over the crackers. Bake 7 minutes.

Sprinkle chocolate evenly over top. Bake 2 minutes. Smooth out chocolate with a spatula. Sprinkle pecans over the top, gently pressing into the chocolate.

Pop in the fridge for a couple hours. Cut up, then become poster child for Type II diabetes.
