Valentine’s Day Saltine Toffee
Hello Sweethearts! I’ve got the perfect Valentine’s Day recipe for you: Valentine’s Day Saltine Toffee.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is QUICK!
There’s a 2 hour cooling time after it’s done but other than that it only takes 10 minutes!
This is the stuff sweet tooth dreams are made of.
It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty with a crunchy texture.
It can be customized in a number of ways through different toppings (nuts, other kinds of drizzled melted chocolate, sprinkles, you name it, etc.).

I love those edges where part of the saltines are exposed and they are extra crispy from being in the oven. Yum!
