Easy Saltine Toffee

Well here's one of those recipes that may or may not be good to know because the result is too addicting. But I'm sharing it anyway because it's Christmas time and that's what we do, right?
I thought that Saltine Toffee has been around for years and years, but from what I've heard it's a new concept. I'll never really know why it has sounded so appealing to me, it must be the sweet and salty mix, but I'm glad I finally tried it. Not only is this delicious, it is so easy to make, too! Another great neighbor gift right here! 
The caramel oozes through the holes of the saltine and turns into a chewy, caramel cookie. Not bad, eh?

All I'm saying is you've got to try these as soon as possible! They can definitely be made any time of the year, too. It doesn't even have to be a holiday. ;)
