What is Mock Toffee, you ask? It’s a blend of butter and sugar boiled together, then poured over a base of saltine crackers. This is baked until golden, then chocolate is spread on top. It’s a rich, delicious treat; and inexpensive, especially when the saltines and butter were free!
With spare saltines on hand, I’ve been trying to fine tune my recipe for Mock Toffee. The results have been variable so far; crisp and crunchy one time, then more like shortbread the next. I think it’s a function of the length of time the syrup is boiled, and how hot the oven is when baking. I have enough saltines left for two more batches.
