Tasty Tuesdays Cracker Brittle

Your topping in this recipe will depict what holiday it is ;)
I found this recipe on a blog I follow. I failed to take pictures last time I made this so I am using Megan's. This recipe is so easy and SO yummy! Here are the step-by-step instructions...

Cracker Brittle
1/4 lb (one sleeve) saltines (the salted ones)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chips
1/3 cup peanut butter (you CAN omit this!)
Chopped Easter colored M&M’s (or topping of your choice, depending on the colors you want!)
-Preheat oven to 400-degrees. 
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (the pan needs to have a lip to it or these things will leak all over your oven.)
- Place saltines in pan, salted side up. Leave just a bit of space between crackers so the toffee with encase the entire cracker when done.

- Bring sugar and butter to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 3 minutes (time the boiling after the whole thing starts boiling, not just the edges). And, resist the urge to stir it.

- Pour boiling mixture over crackers. Place in oven for 5 minutes.
- Put dollops of peanut butter on top and return to the oven for 1 minute.
- Spread melted peanut butter over mixture with spatula.
- Top with chocolate chips. Then, put back into the oven for 1 minute. 
- Use spatula to spread the chocolate chips (which have melted).

- Top with M&M pieces (or whatever you come up with).
- Place in freezer for at least one hour.

- Once these are set, crack them into individual pieces.
