The one with the crack candy…

If you have saltines lying around, make these saltine toffee crack candy. It’s so addicting. It’s salty..sweet..crunchy..buttery goodness.  I can eat the whole batch while doing this post.


Mix together 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of packed light brown sugar and cook over medium flame. Boil between 5-7 minutes until it’s combined and looks like this.


Make sure you stir throughout the process to combine into a creamy mixture.

Once it’s completely combined, pour over saltines spread out over a sheet pan.  I used a half sheet pan here. If you use something bigger, you may have to double the recipe.



Place into a pre-heated 350 Degree oven for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes, spread chocolate chips over and place back in oven for 2-3 minutes, until the chocolate chips soften. I used a mixture of dark chocolate and semi-sweet. I wouldn’t use milk chocolate though.  have a huge sweet tooth, but combined with the brown sugar, it’s too sweet for me.


Remove from the oven and immediately spread the chocolate all over until everything is covered in chocolate. You can also add toppings like pecans, walnuts or toasted coconut, which is what I used.

I think they would make perfect little gifts 🙂
