Have you had cracker toffee before? You might know it by a different name, but looking at the images, Iโ€™m sure you know exactly what I am referring to. Yes, those very addicting bars! ๐Ÿ™‚

Historians say that toffee originated from England, and the very first one was made as early as 1825. Wow! Thatโ€™s like two centuries ago! Back in September 2002, the biggest piece of toffee was created by Susieโ€™s South Forty Confections, Inc. in Midland, Texas.

So why is toffee very popular? Simple. It is delicious! This is why it is usually used to flavor cakes, ice cream, and many other desserts, such as this triple-layer cracker toffee bar recipe that we are going to talk about. This right here proves that crackers are not only a good match for a bowl of soup or perhaps a cup of hot coffee in the morning. With just a little bit of creativity, you can definitely pull off an addictively delicious dessert. Thanks to the rich taste of toffee, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

Simply put, toffee is made by caramelizing brown sugar with butter. There are instances that flour is utilized as well. The result is a mouth-watering confection. So to satisfy your cravings for toffee, letโ€™s make a triple-layer!

It turned out really well and was very simple to make however, the picture on line looks like one layer of crackers, a chocolate filling of some kind and then the chocolate melted on top. You can definitely see all three layers of crackers on my bars and although delicious, sure doesnโ€™t look like photo!
