I've been making this the last few weeks.It's been the demise of my diet (and everyone else's around me) It's definitely addicting , everyone at work calls it Crack candy.
Maybe someone already posted it but if you want I will. OK?

Translation needed

Sorry to be a bore but.......
How much is a stick of butter.
What are saltine crackers and what is a column of crackers.
What is Pam.
Is a cookie tray like a toffee tray.
Is that boil a rolling boil and how hot in F.
Do you mark the cooked toffee when it has cooled slightly in the tray.
These are honest questions as I love making and eating toffee.
Also have made ordinary toffee but substituted the sugar with honey at 1 1/4 lb honey in place of 1 lb of sugar in recipe and it makes damn good toffee.

A Stick of butter is a 1/2

A Stick of butter is a 1/2 cup.

A saltine cracker is a soda cracker. They come 4 individual wrapped columns in a box here. I am out so I could not look but I am guessing 50 or so to a sleeve.

Pam is an aerosol oil spray used to oil pans before baking.

A cookie tray is an aluminum sheet pan. I think you call them baking trays there.

No clue on the F and roiling boil questions.

Didn't know that there were questions and thanks for the help Heather. (I don't seen to be getting any updates in my email)
Our crackers are little squares but you could use soda crackers (i would try it for you here if you tell me the brand most likely to be available here)
Don't worry about farenheit temp. just bring the syrup to a rolling boil for a good 3 minutes.
I think a stick of butter for you would be measured in grams because it's solid but if melted it would be 100 mil, I'm not sure about that though.(Just DON't use margarine!)
Cool and break it up into chunks you don't have to score as for normal toffee.

RE: Email Updates on Threads

You know, I couldn't find a place to have an email sent to me about updated posts in this new forum program.

I finally resorted to just using the box on the top right "Search Keyword ..." and put in my login name for a list to jog my memory on what posts I'd made. ;)

Cracker Toffee

Hi, I am sorry to ask yet another question for a very simple and delicious sounding recipe but what size cookie sheet? I have a large almost resturant size one. Thanks for your response!

..is 11x15. add or delete some crackers. the syrup spreads out when in the oven. <3 Diane
I have some melted choc chips from a bridal shower chocolate fountain calling me right now....
