Saltine Toffee

I've been on this sweet and salty kick lately, and let me tell you this is some seriously good stuff. 
I think the salt on the crisp crackers combined with the rich, semi-sweet chocolate and crunchy, buttery toffee makes for the perfect candy, no matter what time of year it is. 
It's probably best to make this during the holidays, but I won't tell if you make an entire batch just for yourself!

Saltine Toffee
Recipe adapted from the Food Network Magazine
1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans
16 saltine crackers

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Lay 16 saltine crackers in a foil lined 8 inch square pan. Boil 1 stick butter and both sugars, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Pour over the crackers
Bake for 5 minutes until the toffee becomes bubbly.
Top with chocolate chips;bake 1 more minute, then spread the chocolate evenly.
Sprinkle with pecans. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, then cut into squares.
