Easy Homemade Christmas Crack Toffee

Easy Homemade Christmas Crack Toffee is a must make holiday treat. Made with saltine crackers, it's sweet and salty, quick to make, and only 5 ingredients.


  • 40 saltine crackers
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • holiday sprinkles


  • When making any type of candy recipe, it's important to have everything out you need as once the caramel mixture is ready, you need to act fast before it hardens. 
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it well with nonstick spray.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  In a single layer, place the crackers on the baking sheet. Place a trivet or hot pads under the baking sheet to protect your counter.  The caramel mixture will be extremely HOT when you pour it over the crackers. 
  • In a medium saucepan, add the 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar.  Bring to a boil and stir, let it boil for 3 minutes. Stir often so it doesn't burn. 
  • Pour the caramel mixture evenly over the crackers. Use an offset spatula to evenly coat the crackers with the mixture.
  • Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 3 - 5 minutes, or until bubbling. 
  • Remove pan from oven and immediately scatter 2 cups of chocolate chips over the top. 
  • Place pan back in the over for another 2 - 3 minutes to melt the chocolate. 
  • Remove from oven. Using an offset spatula, spread the chocolate evenly over the top of the toffee and crackers.
  • Scatter the sprinkles over the chocolate and allow toffee to cool completely before cutting.
  • You let it sit at room temperature or place in refrigerator for a few minutes to speed it up.  Cut into pieces and enjoy.
