I received Imperial Sugar complimentary but all opinions stated in this post are my own.

I was so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Imperial Sugar for Choctoberfest!  My little guy even got into the action layering the crackers onto the sheet pan.  Imperial Sugar is the perfect ingredient for all the goodies we plan on making this holiday season. Create some lifelong memories when you bake with love and Imperial Sugar. Now on to the recipe!

Start by covering a cookie sheet with tin foil then spray with oil.  Now layer crackers evenly over the whole sheet.  You may have to crack some of the crackers in half to fill out the edges.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a medium saucepan melt 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) then add 1 cup of packed Imperial Brown Sugar.  Slowly bring to a boil for 4-5 minutes.  Pour over the crackers and put directly into the oven.  Cook for 5 minutes.

Take the crackers out of the oven.  Sprinkle the chocolate chips in a thin layer over the top of the crackers.  The biggest trick here is to be patient as the chips do take a little bit to melt and spread.  Once they are all melted put back into the oven for 2 minutes.

Add whatever toppings you like.  I added nuts to all the crackers but shredded coconut to only half since not everyone in the house likes it.  Put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to harden the chocolate. Once the chocolate has hardened crack into pieces. And here you are….

      Yes! They stay very crispy and the ‘toffee’ adds to the crunch.
