Mock Toffee

With spare saltines on hand, I've been trying to fine tune my recipe for Mock Toffee. The results have been variable so far; crisp and crunchy one time, then more like shortbread the next. I think it's a function of the length of time the syrup is boiled, and how hot the oven is when baking. I have enough saltines left for two more batches.

What is Mock Toffee, you ask? It's a blend of butter and sugar boiled together, then poured over a base of saltine crackers. This is baked until golden, then chocolate is spread on top. It's a rich, delicious treat; and inexpensive, especially when the saltines and butter were free!
