ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Salted Toffee-Chocolate Squares

It's very common to get or give toffee during the holidays, isn't it? It's easy, totally yummy, and can be made in big batches. But you can kind of only eat a little at a time. It gets all stuck in your teeth. Not these.

These squares are awesome! All the goodness of chocolate almond toffee with a little not-too-sweet crunchy relief from graham crackers and the slightest hint of salt to get the saliva flowing. I am seriously considering just giving boxes of these away; they hit the spot every time. Plus, hello, 20 minutes a batch!

Salted Toffee-Chocolate Squares
13 full graham crackers
1 bag (8 oz.) toffee bits
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped toasted natural almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (4 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)
3/4 tsp coarse salt

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place graham crackers in a single layer on sheet, edges touching. Sprinkle toffee bits and almonds over graham crackers.

2. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and butter to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and cook at a rapid simmer, swirling pan occasionally, until mixture is syrupy, 2 minutes. Immediately pour over graham crackers. Bake until sugar topping is bubbling, 12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate and salt over graham crackers. With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into 2-inch squares. Let cool completely on sheet on a wire rack. (Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.) Makes 24 squares
