  4. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, bring butter and brown sugar to a boil, stirring continuously for about two minutes (it should be bubbly.)

  6. Pour toffee mixture over crackers, then bake for 6 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, sprinkle tops of warm crackers with milk chocolate chips.
