Christmas Toffee Bars

First, thanks Holly for inviting me back this year!

Now on to the yummy treat....As a child this was my FAVORITE Christmas "cookie." While I loved helping my mom decorate the cut outs and enjoyed the sugar cookies with the chocolate star in the middle I couldn't shove enough of these in my mouth :) Even better they are easy and quick to make and do not require a lot of ingredients. So, I present to you......

Christmas Toffee Bars

Saltine Crackers
1 cup of butter and additional butter to grease the pan
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
Chopped nuts to sprinkle on top

-Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter a 9x13 cooking pan and layer with saltine crackers.
-Take 1 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 min and then pour over the saltines. Bake for 5 min.
-Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips and pour on top. I usually pour this on top after the brown sugar/butter mixture as cooled a bit on the saltines (it spreads easier).
-Add chopped nuts and let cool.

These are easier to cut when they are not too hot or too cool! Happy baking and eating!
