12oz.bag white chocolate chips, about 2 cups
purple, yellow, and green sanding sugars
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line the bottom and sides of a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. (Tip: Spread butter on bottom of baking sheet to help hold down the paper.)
Place crackers, salt side down, on baking sheet side-by-side in single layer; set aside.
In a medium skillet, melt the sugar, butter and cinnamon over medium heat. Once melted, increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 3 minutes, without stirring.
Pour hot toffee mixture onto crackers in pan. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread. Bake 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle white chocolate chips evenly over top. Return to oven for another 3 to 4 minutes, until chips will spread. Spread evenly with rubber spatula. (The chips might not spread easily at first, but keep going!)
Decorate top with sanding sugars, alternating colors in a diagonal pattern. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the counter then freeze for 30 minutes or until hardened.
Remove from freezer and crack into bite sized pieces. Store candy in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
