Maria - something thin to make as a gift in your big round!

NEW & IMPROVED Ritz Cracker Toffee
* 2 sleeves Ritz crackers
* 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
* 1 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 bag (11 oz) milk chocolate chips (=2 rounded cups - use 1 ea. semi and milk sprinkled in stripes)
* Christmas sprinkles, for garnish (chopped toasted almonds)

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet (about 12" x 18") and line with parchment paper/tin foil. Lightly oil with cooking spray/butter and salt sprinkles.
2. Place crackers in a single layer on cookie sheet - lined up w/broken crackers in creases and 1/2 crackers at ends for alternating rows.
3. In medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, and salt. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, let boil for 6-7 minutes. It will be thicker and much darker in color
4. Remove from heat and carefully stir in vanilla extract.
5. Quickly pour over the crackers on the cookie sheet. Use a big spatula or back side of a silverware spoon to spread it out evenly over the crackers.
6. Bake for 15 minutes.
7. Immediately after baking, sprinkle the bag of chocolate chips over the toffee and let sit for 5 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly over crackers and decorate with Christmas sprinkles/chopped toasted almonds.
8. Let cool for 2 hours so it can come together and harden up. Break into pieces.
9. Store leftovers covered at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
There are 4 sleeves of Ritz crackers in a standard size box. You will just need 2 of them. It's about 45 crackers.
