crack toffee

Crack Toffee. I couldn't help calling them that. Most recipes call it Cracker Toffee. Or Saltine Cracker Toffee. But for me, it's too darn addictive! I've been wanting to make these ever since The BFF's Husband whipped up a batch for his company's Christmas party. Impressed by the combination of crunch, chocolate, and buttery toffee, I'm just a few years late trying out this treat.
FOUR ingredients, only four! ingredients. Five, if you like nuts.

You'll find many recipes call for saltines, but I decided 
to use "light, flaky, buttery" Keebler Club crackers.
(Those little elves are irresistible.) One sleeve perfectly fills up the sheet pan.

Melt and boil the butter and brown sugar for three minutes,
and pour over the crackers. Then into the oven they go.

The residual heat of the confection melts the chocolate chips in just five minutes.


With a spread and sprinkle, you're almost home. Very simple to put together,
in fact the hardest part is waiting for the chocolate to harden.


Crack Toffee

Printable recipe

1 sleeve of Keebler Club Crackers
1 cup (8 ounces) butter
1 cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
¾ cups toasted, chopped pecans or toffee chips

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Line a 10x15-inch pan with parchment paper. Butter the paper. In a single layer, line the pan with the crackers.

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the butter and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil, without stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir in the salt, then pour the mixture over the crackers and spread to cover the crackers completely.

Place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes, or until brown and bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with the chocolate chips.

Let sit for 5 minutes, then using an offset spatula, smooth the melted chocolate over the entire pan.

Sprinkle the nuts or chips on top of the chocolate. Freeze or refrigerate for a few hours, until the chocolate hardens.

  3. Well, I guess this will be next! BTW - we made the rest of the chocolate chip cookie dough tonight (after our premature sample at 8 hrs in the fridge). It had been in there for a little over 48. They were even better than before. Isaac said, "The chocolate is OOZING!" Now, technically, it had oozed with the last batch as well, but apparently that was the only way he could capture that those cookies are just the best.
