Tree Bark - AKA Poor Man's Crack (Crystal)

1 1/2 packages of graham crackers (can substitute with saltines)
1 c. butter
1 c. light brown sugar
6oz. of semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz (or half a package) of toffee crunched - like heath bar
1/2 cup chopped almonds
Jelly roll pan
Aluminum foil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of the jelly roll pan with aluminum foil (make sure you have enough foil to cover sides). Placea single layer of graham crackers in bottom of lined pan. Combine the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan on the stovetop. Stir constantly, allowing the butter and brown sugar to mix. Then let mixture boil (medium heat is good) for 3 minutes. Pour mixture over the crackers. Sprinkle with toffee and almonds. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Allow to melt for a few minutes. Put in freezer. When frozen, peel away aluminum foil. Break into pieces and enjoy! (You don't need to keep it frozen or in the fridge after initial freezing).

*Let me warn you that this stuff is addictive!
