Saltine Cracker Toffee

’tis the season for saltine cracker toffee! My family has been making this every holiday season since before I can remember. It’s always a hit and it’s so, so simple to make!


saltine crackers
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 bag dark chocolate chips
sea salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil, and lay saltine crackers over the entire pan. Melt butter and brown sugar together over medium heat and stir until it boils.  Let boil for 3 minutes, and then pour mixture over the saltine crackers. Bake for 5 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes and then pour chocolate chips over the crackers and toffee. Let sit for a minute or so, and then start spreading the chocolate lightly with the back of a spoon. The chocolate should start to melt and become easy to spread. Once the chocolate is spread smoothly, top with sea salt (and/or crushed peppermint candies, nuts – anything goes here!) Cool in refrigerator or freezer. Once hardened, peel off the tin foil from the bottom and cut or break into pieces. I recommend keeping these in the freezer until you are going to serve them.

Merry Christmas!
