I miss covered dish suppers. I know…we can go to restaurants or make it ourselves, but somehow the food really tasted better when I was a kid and my church or family would have a huge buffet of pot-luck dishes. It is ridiculous I know, but I have very happy memories of the HUGE table filled with food in the fellowship hall at the church I attended as I grew up.
I can remember the day I heard my minister say, “That stuff is good!” as he walked toward me to get seconds on something that occupied the dessert table. Curious, I followed to see what miraculous confection he was enjoying so much. (He didn’t normally show such enthusiasm for desserts). To my surprise, he picked up a piece of simple, humble, toffee. This chocolate covered confection was only a saltine covered in homemade candy and topped with chocolate and nuts. Curious, I tasted a bite and realized he was right.
There are many variations of this basic recipe, but this is the version I keep making and will make again this year. When I brought it to a covered dish supper last night, they asked me to please share the recipe so here it is—simple, quick, and delicious. I hope you find it enjoyable.
