Ingredients:  
35-40 saltine crackers
1 cup salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 (12-ounce bag) dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet)
1 cup heath toffee bit
3/4 cup chopped roasted pecans
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (melted)
Sea salt, optional

Directions:
Directions:
CARAMEL: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350ļF. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Place the saltine cracker side by side, in a single layer on the baking sheet; set aside.
Melt the butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves, stirring as required until the caramel comes to a boil. Once it boils, donít stir it, just let it cook for 3 minutes. Carefully pour the caramel over the saltines and make sure all the crackers are covered in the caramel, using an offset spatula. Bake for 8 minutes.
CHOCOLATE: Pull the baking sheet out of the oven and immediately top with the chocolate chips. Let the chocolate sit for a minute and heat through, then spread using an offset spatula. If all of the chocolate doesnít melt right away, pop the baking sheet back in the oven for roughly 1 minute or until the chocolate spreads easily.
DECORATE: Top with chopped nuts and heath toffee bits. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave (see notes) and drizzle on top; sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Let cool for several minutes before placing it in the refrigerator to cool for at least 2 hours or pop it into the freezer for roughly 30 minutes if you want to have them ready to eat quicker!
