Halloween Bark

Here is an awesome dessert to take to your next get together and wow your friends. It's a cracker toffee bark that is super easy to make. We call it CRACK because it's made with crackers and it's very addicting! I think this is my favorite variation of the recipe.
Halloween Toffee Bark (CRACK)

Saltines (1+ sleeves depending on the size of your cookie sheet)
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
M&Ms, mini marshmallows, & candy corn

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with little lip around the edge) with cooking spray. I use a cookie sheet liner instead. Arrange crackers to cover the bottom of the sheet. I had to break a few in half to fit along the edge.
Melt butter, add the brown sugar, and then boil for 3 minutes.
Pour over the saltines and put in oven for 5 minutes. Remove and sprinkle choc chips on top. When chocolate chips look glossy (about 2 minutes) spread the melted chips evenly across the top.
Sprinkle the M&Ms, marshmallows, and candy corn over top.
Put it in the fridge to harden and then brake it apart into uneven pieces.
What type of variations can you think of for this YUMMY treat?
