Cracker Toffee Bars

This recipe had been sitting on my Pinterest list of things to make for a very long time.  I finally made them for our Halloween trick or treat party.  They were a total hit!  I was worried that the crackers would become soggy after storing, but they stayed good for several days.  (Well maybe that's not a plus since I polished off the pan.  Hips don't need that).

90 buttery rectangular crackers (such as Keebler Club Crackers)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. milk
2 c. milk chocolate chips

Line a 13X9 inch baking pan with foil, spray with cooking spray.  Layer 30 of the crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the baking pan.

In a 2 quart saucepan, mix the sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, butter and milk; cook over medium heat until butter is melted, stirring frequently.  Increase heat to medium high.  Once caramel boils cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour 1/3 of the caramel over the crackers in the pan.  Layer 30 more crackers over the caramel.  Repeat with remaining caramel and crackers.

In a small microwave safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.  Pour over caramel top, spread evenly.  Refrigerate about 1 hour.  Store covered for up to 4 days.
