Chocolate, Peanut & Pretzel Toffee Crisps

My "crispers" are the ultimate combination of salty and sweet. They never last long because—trust me—they're addictive! Make the recipe the way it's written or sprinkle on any treats you like. —Jennifer Butka, Livonia, Michigan

    My family and friends just love this recipe. I make this all through the Christmas season. I use the Christmas colored M&Ms and cashews and almonds in place of peanuts. Love how easy this is to make as well.

    This recipe is SO easy to make and is perfectly portable for an office potluck, your family Christmas gathering, or even as a sort of "alternative" trail mix. Loved the suggestion below about using graham crackers - will definitely give that a try! (Different colored M&Ms could make this a good treat for other holidays as well - red, white and pink ones for Valentine's?? Definitely on my list!)

    I used graham crackers instead of saltines and added 3/4 of heath toffee chips also. They are amazing!
