Below is a Recipe for Heather who just had her first baby ... "Brodie". It's a Boy! Congratulations Sweetie... you sure have grown up since we first met at Listening Heart Farm Bed and Breakfast.

Heather has requested a Toffee Syrup Cookie Recipe made with left over crackers she tasted when she was a Guest at Listening Heart Farm Bed and Breakfast. Children and Adults both like this unique Recipe.  This Recipe was originally served to me by Toby, the wife of  Michael...  The Pastor of Lion of Judah Messianic Church, back in the 1980's.

Toby's Toffee Crunch Cookies
  • Enough Saltines Cracker to fill a Foil Lined Cookie Sheet *about 40
  • 1 Cup Sugar (white or brown)
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Sticks Butter (use one stick for cruncher cookies)
  • Small Bag Chocolate Chips
Preheat Oven To 425 degrees.  Lay out the Crackers on a Foil Lined Cookie Sheet, back to back.  The Cookie Sheet will need to have a rim. A Jelly Roll Pan will work too. Bring Sugar, Water and Butter to a boil and stirring continually, boil about 5 minutes.  Slowly pour hot syrup mixture over Crackers which are laid out on the Foil lined Cookie Sheet, covering them evenly.  Bake 5 Minutes. Remove from Oven ... immediately sprinkle Chocolate Chips on top, smearing them over the Cookies as they melt with a Spatula or the back of a spoon.  Refrigerate or freeze till hard, about 15 minutes. When cold, break them into pieces like Peanut Brittle. If the Chocolate does not melt all of the way, you can put the tray back in Oven for a minute or so to help in this process.

Options, sprinkle crushed nuts over melted chocolate, I prefer Hazelnuts. You can vary the Recipe by using the left over Crackers of your choice; Graham Crackers will make this cookie even sweeter. Personally I find it sweet enough without the Graham Cracker ... but would suggest if you use Graham Crackers, that you try making them similar to Smores by drizzling melted Marshmallow Creme on top.  This is also a good way to use up Stale Crackers as once they are baked, the heat and moisture freshens them.
