Sweet Saltines: Toffee Crunch Bars

I love the buttery, sweet, salty crunch of English Toffee. This is a quick way to get a similar result without fiddling with a candy thermometer. It's also the most delicious use for the humble saltine crackers that I know of...

Toffee Crunch Bars

35 saltine crackers (salted tops preferred)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts here)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange crackers in a single layer on a 15x10x1 inch foil-lined pan. Heat the butter and sugar together in a saucepan over medium-high heat until butter is melted and mixture is blended. Boil for 3 minutes without stirring. Pour over crackers and spread evenly.
Bake for 5-7 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Remove from oven, sprinkle over chocolate and allow to stand for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts. Spread chocolate evenly over bars and sprinkle with nuts. Cool completely before breaking into pieces.
