This is like a delicious toffee, topped with chocolate and pecans; make this toffee bark and break it into pieces for a sweet treat.

Ingredients:

54 Ritz Crackers (or saltines)
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line an 11"x 17" pan with foil and grease the foil well. Line with crackers.
In a medium saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar and stir to mix. Bring to a boil over medium heat and let come to a rolling boil for 3 minutes. Once the mixture comes to a boil, DO NOT STIR. (Your toffee should reach 270-290 degrees if using a candy thermometer)
2.
Pour brown sugar mixture over the crackers. Bake 4 minutes. Turn the oven off.
Remove from the oven and wait 1 minute. Pour chocolate chips over the top and let sit 4 minutes or until chocolate is soft (or place 1 minute in the warm oven). Spread chocolate evenly and sprinkle pecans on top.
3.
Cool on the counter slightly and then place into the freezer to cool completely. Break into pieces.

Chocolate Chips should melt when heated however if you have trouble with them melting, you can melt them at 50% power in the microwave.  If your oven is too hot, the chocolate can seize instead of melting.  You'll want your toffee to sit for about 1 minute before adding the chocolate.
