Cracker Toffee


It’s almost magic to be able to make such a yummy dessert with a sleeve of saltine crackers.  They only have 4 ingredients and take just a few minutes to put together.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 35 saltine crackers
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • about 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Line a jelly roll pan or large, rimmed cookie sheet with foil.  Put the crackers in a single layer on the pan.  In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium-high heat until it’s melted and blended well.  Bring to a boil and boil it 3 minutes without stirring.

Spread the butter/sugar mixture over the crackers.  Bake it 7 minutes at 400 degrees.  After removing from the oven, sprinkle it with chocolate chips.  Let them stand on the hot candy for 5 minutes, then spread the chocolate evenly over the top.

Cool and then refrigerate till set.  Break into pieces.

If you like this kind of thing (and you’d have to be crazy not to!) you might also want to check out Frito Candy.  That stuff is scrumptious too.

  1. This recipe looks so good and sounds way to easy to make, and the best part of it is everyone should already have these items on hand.

    Hi, Have you ever tryed ” fried ravoli” my son had this at a resturant some time ago, and now he likes for me to make it.
    Here is what you need= 1 bag of frozen ravoli
    plain bread crumbs
    veg. oil
    marina sauce
    Dip ravoli in milk then in bread crumbs. Drop in hot oil, it just takes a short time for them to brown. Lay on paper towels to drain. Dip in marina sauce.

  3. This is my favorite thing to make for the holidays and special occasions! I’m sure we have a little extra weight b/c of it! People ALWAYS ask for the recipe and are floored that Saltines are used.

  4. I don’t have any square crackers only round. Do you think they would work? It looks really good, but I’d probably eat the whole thing and hide it from the rest of my family. So I’ll probably only make 1/4 the recipe and still keep it for myself!! (Is that really wrong?)

  5. I love, love, love, love, love, love these!! Can you tell I love them? LOL

    I used to make them a lot, but I ended up eating like half of them myself (they called to me constantly). Whenever I make them for an event, they are devoured quickly!

  6. We make these for Christmas holidays and everyone raves about them. We add chopped walnuts or pecans on top! Yum!

  7. I never tried them with round crackers. But I just found Barbara’s Wheatines (made with whole wheat flour) and thinking of these bars had to get them!

  8. Yeah, it’s good, very useful, thanks 🙂

  9. Oh man… this is an insanely good recipe. I posted recently about it on my blog. Bad thing though is I want to eat the whole pan!

  10. Did anyone else have a problem with the amount of toffee mixture not being enough to coat the crackers? I boiled for 3 minutes exactly and using 1/2 c brown sugar and one stick of butter like the recipe calls for I was not able to fully coat all 35 crackers. After seeing this, I looked up other recipes for this toffee and they all call for 1 or 1 1/2 c. brown sugar with 1 stick of butter. I am very disappointed and I wish I would have looked for other recipes first before wasting my time and ingredients.

    • I’m sorry it didn’t turn out for you. I’ve made it several times and it has worked.

    • Hi Tiffany, I just made as I do often, but my recipe calls for 1 CUP of butter :(not 1 stick=1/2 c). This is used with 1 c brown sugar boiled for about 3 mins. Honestly, I might like even a little more syrup since I have to really stretch it to cover my crackers. If it weren’t so full of fat I’d use 1 1/2 c butter with 1 1/2 c brown sugar. Sorry you had the wrong amount. I’m sure it didn’t go too far with 1 stick of butter.

  11. Have you ever tried them with gram crackers instead of saltines?

  12. Has anyone tried with crushed candy canes on top for Christmas? And can I store at room temp? (Planning on making for a party we are hosting in 5days)
