Week 2: Food
Week 2: Food
I tried a new recipe, Poor Man's Toffee, which uses Cheez-It crackers as its base. I've made a similar recipe using saltines...and I like Cheez-Its better. There's definitely something yummy about combining the sweet and salty together.


What a fascinating picture.
Oooo! Where'd you find the recipe? I've love to try it. :D

Awesome picture, too. I love the contrast provided by the Cheez-its. hehe
Let me see if I can find the link... Hm, I failed to copy the link, so here's the recipe which I found online somewhere (it was on someone's blog, I think):

Poor Man’s Toffee: Dawn’s way

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1 cup, packed light brown sugar
2 bags of 11.05 ounces of milk chocolate chips
½ box of the Big-size Cheez-It’s (use the big ones, as they cover more room)
1 cup of crushed toasted pecans (or walnuts or whatever you crave)

Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Line jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Or just use a non-stick jelly roll pan.
Lay a flat layer of Cheez-It crackers out on the foil. I did a layer and a half, making sure to cover up any gaps with Cheez-It’s.
In a saucepan, melt the sugar and butter until a boil is reached. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes or until mixture is thickened and sugar is completely dissolved. Pour this mixture over the crackers and spread to coat evenly. Do not mix! Just pour, and fill in any gaps with a spatula.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 5-8 minutes, or until the toffee becomes bubbly. Turn off oven, then take out of oven and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then sprinkle on the chocolate chips. But tray back in oven to help the chips melt a bit. When chips are melted a bit, spread them into an even layer like you would frosting a cake. After done spreading the chocolate this is the time to sprinkle on the chopped nuts or whatever else you want to add.
Let cool and/or refrigerate until hardened. Once firmly cooled then break into pieces.

Sounds delicious!
