I call these popularity cookies because when I make them and take them to work, they make me popular! You can make these with club crackers, too.
I made these last night to test before taking them to a cookie exchange. Husband and Son went crazy and can't believe how much they taste like Almond Roca Candy. I wanted something quick, easy and different. These are it! Here is what I did and it made 3 dozen cookies. I lined a cookie sheet with tinfoil and sprayed a little bit of Pam on foil, used Club Crackers, light brown sugar, Land of Lakes butter,Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet morsels (chopped-melts quicker)and slivered almonds(chopped). When brown sugar and butter were cooking I stirred mixture constantly for 3 minutes at a low boil. I then put sugar mixture in a measuring cup so it would be easier to pour on crackers. Put them in the oven for about 5 minutes, if you see the sugar mixture bubble on the crackers, don't worry it is ok. I take them out of the oven once or twice to push the crackers back in a square with a spatula. I pull them out of the oven and add the chopped morsels, put them back in the oven, turn off the oven and wait 4-5 min for chocolate to melt. I spread chocolate with spoon, add chopped nuts and refrigerate about 4-5 hours, or freeze for 1 hour. I then cut them into 36 squares with a pizza cutter and it works perfectly. - 15 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
YUMMY! I made these to include in the cookie trays I put together to give out as gifts. I had to HIDE them from my husband so that I would have enough for the trays! I used club crackers rather than saltines but otherwise followed the directions exactly. The first batch I made turned out perfectly. I must not have boiled the toffee long enough for the second batch because I ended up with a very sticky mess the second time. It's very important to start timing the 3 minutes when the mixture comes to a good boil. - 21 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy! So easy. Instead of waiting 8 hours to eat (who could do that?), I popped the tray in the freezer for about a half hour and it did the trick. - 18 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
