    sticky bottom

    dee Reeve from Omaha, NE

    The bottom sticks to the foil and it is wet RECIPE EDITOR'S NOTE: Make sure that you are using heavy duty foil. Also make sure that the mixture boils and bakes long enough.

    family tradition

    Jessica Kohler from Youngstown, OH

    This toffee bar has been a Christmas treat in my family as long as I can remember. My grandmother always made them. She used graham crackers for the crust and she always put those little tiny round multicolored cupcake sprinkles over the walnuts. Since her passing last year I have taken over making these bars, and they are so easy and still a hit!

    I just made this on a Friday afternoon, shared with my 2 adult kids and and by Sunday afternoon it was gone. We plan on sharing this in our Holiday tins this year.

    Easy, versatile, and always a hit

    Amy Laskin from Yonkers, NY

    As so many have said, this is delicious, easy to make, and very popular. It's also versatile. I've substituted matzoh for the crackers and it works great, but for an extra-rich treat, try it with graham crackers and pecans, with a little sprinkle of fleur de sel if you're feelin' fancy.

  •  Star(s)

    What a treat!

    Resa Russell from

    My family loves the almond rocha candy you buy in the store, but on a limited budget it can be difficult to provide this treat even on special occasions. This recipe is not just a great substitue, it has become a family & friend favorite. Even better ~ it's quick and easy, as well as a bargain. I love the fact that I know all the indredients that are in this treat, also! Since we're a "baking" household, we usually have all the indgredients required, too. What a convenience for a quick, tasty treat that earns Mom great rewards!

    vin koz from home

    These are great! I was surprised to be using crackers but in the end they made sense!

    Was doubtful

    Lisa Walker-Kadrich from WESTLAND, MI

    Easy Toffee Candy

    Kim Vincenzo from Stuart, Florida

    I made this toffee candy several times around the holidays. It was such a big hit and so easy to make that I decide to make it at Valentine's Day too. Only this time the crackers floated to the top while baking. I have no idea what I did different or how to prevent this. It turned into a gooey mess that I through away. I am still determined to make them again. I bought club crackers and graham crackers to try next time. I don't want to give up on this recipe because I know how good it can be!

In these high stress days, just a thinking of you gift is such a nice surprise and these Toffee Candys are soooo good and easy to make. : )

    Easy (chocolate!) Toffee Candy

    nikki pals from PALATINE, IL

    I have made something like this for years but with out the chocolate/condensed milk combo. The chocolate/condensed milk combo took this up a bit. It is more decadent than just melting chocolate chips on top. You get this fudgy layer that is good all by itself.(as a matter of fact I have used the recipe for this on other bar cookies.)

    Unbelievably easy

    JAN STARBUCK from WINCHESTER, IN

    These are so easy to put together. No candy thermometer to watch. Just boil 2 minutes. I love toffee, but don't have much luck with traditional recipes that say "boil 'til the hard ball stage". I'll definitely use this often.

  •  Star(s)

    These are great

    Jennifer Osheaski from SUGAR GROVE, IL

    These are the best little treat but when I have tried to make these recently the crackers come to the top while in the oven but they still turned out good just a bit messy

    yummy but didn't turn out right

    Deb de Sa from TORONTO, KS

    I must be the only one who can't figure it out. It tastes yummy but for some reason, the toffee part seeps through my crackers and it ends up with the caramel, then cracker then chocolate. Anyone else have this problem?

  •  Star(s)

    Yummmmm!

    Joyce Hohulin from GOODFIELD, IL

    The first time I made this, it was a flop...I used light brown sugar and it didn't set up. Next time I used the dark brown(like the recipe said!) and they turned out perfectly. Truly an easy and delicious candy...just use what the recipe calls for and you will be very pleased.

    Perfect For "The Red Hat Society"

    Maureen Vetromila from MOROCCO, IN

    As a favor for a friend, she had asked me to find a interesting candy recipe for the club she belongs to: "The Red Hat Society". As I had put this recipe into my Recipe Box - I thought that this would be perfect for their meeting. To my surprise; my friend called me that night and said that over 24 members had asked her for the recipe. So...if a Society that has such clientel requests this recipe; I would say she has a HUGE hit for every type of person. Great going from myself and "The Red Hat Society". Thank-you for helping both of us look great.

    Sweet Tooth No More

    Thomas S. Fitzpatrick from GLENNVILLE, GA

    My grandaughter and I made this and the only thing we changed was The nuts to pecans, as I pick several hundred pounds each year. My grandaughter said PaPa I don't think I have a sweet tooth anymore. To my suprise there was only 1 piece left while I was doing dishes. Oh well backto the drawing board. Have fun and remember Cook With Kids!
