Does this freeze well??

Christmas Crack with Peanuts

Ingredients

  • 24 Saltine crackers
  • 1 ½ cups lightly salted peanuts
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp golden syrup (or corn syrup)
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13 baking dish with wax paper and spray with cooking spray. 
  2. NOTE: do not skip the cooking spray or you could have pieces of wax paper stuck to the bottom of the toffee.
  3. Arrange the Saltines in a single layer on top of the wax paper.
  4. Combine peanuts, ½ cup of golden (or corn) syrup, and sugar in a bowl and put in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Stir with a rubber spatula and continue to microwave until the sugar melts and the mixture starts to bubble.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and vanilla to the hot mixture and stir until melted. Return to the microwave and microwave until the mixture browns; about 2 minutes.
  6. Quickly pour the mixture over the crackers and spread evenly with a rubber spatula. 
  7. NOTE: the mixture will be very hot and sticky, so you will need a potholder and to spread the mixture over the crackers immediately. Work in sections if needed.
  8. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  9. Remove toffee from the dish and place it on a cutting board. Break it apart in serving-sized pieces. A knife may be needed. Return the toffee pieces to the baking dish.
  10. Add chocolate chips, 4 tablespoons of butter, and 1 tablespoon of golden (or corn) syrup to a bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing each time until the chocolate melts. 
  11. Drizzle chocolate over the top of the toffee with a spoon. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.
