Known elsewhere as “Christmas crack,” saltine cracker toffee is the addictive holiday treat that’s notorious for being a sweet-and-salty lover’s dream come true. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. MORE+LESS-
salted saltine crackers, or enough to line your pan
cups milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips
cup chopped pecans, if desired
Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan or large rimmed cookie sheet with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. Place saltine crackers in single layer in pan.
In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat butter and brown sugar to boiling over medium heat. Continue boiling for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines; spread to cover crackers completely.
Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until crackers look all bubbly.
Remove from oven; sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Let stand a minute or two to melt; spread evenly. Or, in microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until they can be stirred smooth; spread over crackers. Top with pecans.
Cool completely on cooling rack, about 40 minutes. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Break into pieces.
- Preheat your oven beforehand, so you can pop the crackers in the oven as soon as you finish pouring the toffee layer over the crackers.
- Make this saltine cracker toffee your own by swapping pecans with other nuts like almonds, cashews or pistachios. Not into nuts? Leave them off altogether.
- Be sure to use a baking sheet with sides, as it will prevent the toffee from bubbling over the pan.
- Store saltine cracker candy in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks; it tastes just as good chilled!
- This is the perfect treat to give as a gift or bring to holiday parties. Our other desserts are just as shareable.
