Saltine cracker toffee

Toffee is one of my favorite candy treats. But this time things are a little different. Yes it's still full of butter and brown sugar but this time there is a secret cracker ingredient. This candy treat is the perfect fix to your sweet tooth and is a breeze to throw together.

Saltine cracker toffee

Yields 1 sheet pan


  • 2 sleeves saltine crackers
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Lay out saltine crackers onto the prepared baking sheet, making sure that the crackers are close together.
  3. In a small pot over medium heat, add butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour butter/brown sugar mixture over the saltine crackers, spread with a silicone spatula (as best as you can) and add to the oven.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes and remove from the oven.
  6. Sprinkle the top of the candy with chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Spread the chocolate chips across the candy. Optional: Crush additional crackers over the top.
  7. Let the candy harden for 30 minutes and then break into pieces.
