For a dessert that’s crispy, chewy, sweet and savory all at once, you need to try out these Triple-Layer Cracker Toffee Bars from Pillsbury. You just start with buttery rectangular crackers for the crunchy and savory bottom layer and follow it up with a sticky-sweet caramel toffee layer. The final top layer consists of smooth, melted chocolate.
These yummy bars come together in just under an hour and a half, and you’ll only spend about 25 minutes in the kitchen on prep time. They need to set in the refrigerator for one hour and, afterward, you can store them covered for up to four days. Though I don’t think they’d last nearly that long in my house!
Yum! If they taste half as good as they look, they’re downright irresistible!
The recipe description suggests that these delicious treats have Southern roots and make for a great edible gift. Whether you want to welcome a new neighbor to the area, let a friend know you’re thinking of them or make a great impression at a potluck, these tasty bars are sure to be well-received.
Some quick tips: Be sure to stir constantly so the toffee doesn’t burn. And to melt the chocolate chips, you can use a glass bowl in the microwave to prevent scorching.
If you love the salty and sweet combination this recipe offers, give these salted chocolate caramel and pretzel bars a try. They’re made from just four simple ingredients, and you don’t even need to use the oven, which makes them an ideal dessert to make on a hot day.
For a heartier sweet-and-salty combo, these mini pineapple casseroles with bacon are perfect to serve as passed appetizers at your next dinner party. They’re made in a muffin tin, which makes them super-portable, too.
Long live salty and sweet!
