Those cornflake cookies sound great. I would like to try them but can not find those McIntosh toffee bars. Has anyone seen them for sale??

I should check our bulk food stores for the toffee. I have not seen it sold in variety stores at all like it used to be. Great idea Mr. S!

So far, I'm liking the Irish whiskey and heavy cream the best.

I'm excited about what I'm making as Christmas gifts this year ... I bought the "makins" for
Landra's "Cracker Brittle" today ... I've bought Christmas tins for those I'm shipping goodies
to and plan to include this ... I got sliced almonds cuz I thought they'd be pretty ...

Office Depot sells these great plastic shipping envelopes ... the envelopes are expensive but,
since they weigh nothing, shipping charges are low ...

I'm also sending fudge which I make most years ... and nut and fruit brittle which I send most
years ... I'm making a wheat-free rum fruit cake this year and will send LITTLE bits of that as
it's still in the experimental stage and may not turn out well ... I'm also sending Texas Baby's
instant tea mix from another thread ... and "Snowmen's Poop" as well ... I'm including recipes
for EVERYTHING ... including for Play Doh ...

I'm very pleased with my varied choices, thanks to Plenty of Fish cooks! the only one I'm a
bit nervous about is the rum fruit cake as I'm not actually using a recipe ... THANKS for
helping make Christmas brighter this year!

I may have mentioned that I've sent my 13 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren individual
"books" with two stories I've written, starring them! no recipe for that, though!

Thanks for including my idea to your gift baskets Molly, they sound so wonderful!
My shopping is done, the tree is up and I'm also ready to begin making goodies! This forum is such a rich source of great recipes, I've found several I want to try and yes, cracker brittle will be one of them. Thank you all for sharing!

Seriously Maude, try it with graham crackers!

Drizzle chocolate and sprinkle with nuts for a more English Toffee bar tastes.
It's heavenly!!!

Use graham crackers Charminc? OMG, thanks for posting this. I am about to do some baking up (am way behind this year), and totally forgot the cracker recipe. Now that I am reminded, I will use graham crackers as opposed to saltines. Thanks a bunch honey.

Having a family Christmas Day dinner with kids and adults and us adults are going to have a vodka jello shot "competition". Has anyone done anything with jello shots that looks awesome? Presentation is important. Thanks!!

you can mix the colors of jello just as it starts to set...........its a pain in the butt.........and the window of time you have to mix them....[think swirled together]........is short..........but they do look cool

We always topped them with a dollop of whip cream. You wouldn't think about it with a shooter but it's perfect with the sweetness of the jello.

my daughter's a nurse now but, in a previous life, she managed one of the
Lyon's Restaurants ... when they were mixing Jell-O shots, they'd use ANY
liquor ... whatever wasn't selling well ... so no one ever knew WHAT they
were getting ... it might be any number of flavors of Jell-O mixed with any
of a variety of boozes!

personally, I'd prefer Malibu rum ... yum ...

... just bumping this up so the folks SIX YEARS LATER can benefit from Landra's Cracker Brittle and all the other MARVELOUS recipes ... treasure trove of holiday delights ...

Cracker Brittle

A sleeve of saltines*
1 cup of butter
1 cup brown sugar
bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
chopped nuts if you want (I like blanched almonds)**

Line jelly roll pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray, then fit as many saltines on the pan as you can get in a single layer. Cook/boil butter and sugar until it comes together, stirring the entire time-- about 2-3 minutes. Spoon over crackers in jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes; watch closely because it will burn easily.

Remove from oven, then while it's hot, top evenly with the chocolate chips and smear them around as they melt to form a layer of chocolate. Sprinkle the nuts over that. Stick the pan in the freeze for about an hour or so, then break up the brittle into pieces.

*you can also use graham crackers or Club/Townhouse crackers. I prefer saltines because they have that hint of salt that compliments the sweetness of the sugar and chocolate
**you can also top with crushed peppermint candy

Makes a nice gift too.
Caution: is very addictive!
