Magic toffee

This is one of those recipes that must be tried to be believed.
Thanks to Kathy Molinaro for introducing it to me.
The day she brought this into the office I drove straight home to make it.

Super easy. ASTONISHINGly good.

1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup sugar
12 oz bag semi-sweet Nestle (or other) morsels

Preheat oven to 350°
Line a jellyroll pan with foil, including sides.
Line pan with saltines.
Melt butter on stove, pour in sugar.
Bring to a (rolling) boil and remove from heat.
Drizzle over saltines.
Place pan into 350° oven for 15 minutes,
remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate morsels over saltines.
Return to oven for a few minutes more, until morsels melt.
Remove and spread chocolate across top with knife.
(I used a metal pie server)
Leave in refrigerator overnight.
Break up like peanut brittle.
Freaking enjoy.

1. Best served right out of the refrigerator.
2. Do not leave yourself alone in the house with it.

Wait, so what kind of recipe leaves out the quantity of saltines?

Give us the number, or at least the square footage required!

This isn't toffee.

This is... er...

Chocolate Saltines.

No, it's toffee.
A homemade Heath bar.

You wouldn't even guess there were saltines in it.

Oh, and I used about 1 and 2/3 "columns" of saltines, so you can buy just a double (instead of a quad).
