Christmas Crack aka Chocolate Saltine Toffee


With its sweet and salty allure, one bite of this Christmas crack, you’ll be addicted, just as the name implies.

This recipe is quite easy and multiplies endlessly, making it the perfect treat to share this holiday season and after the first few batches, I started whipping up my own versions that may or may not have included bourbon, potato chips, and cayenne.

Christmas Crack aka Chocolate Saltine Toffee
Cook time

Total time


Serves: 3 Servings

  • 15 saltine crackers
  • ½ c unsalted butter
  • ½ c brown sugar
  • 1½ c bittersweet chocolate
  • Optional: bourbon, potato chips, or cayenne!

  1. In a pan lined with parchment all the way around, line the crackers on the bottom.
  2. Heat the butter and sugar {either over the stove top or by microwave}. It’s ready when it’s a thick consistency. Mine took about a minute and a half in a 1.58 kw microwave. I whisked vigorously in between each burst and allowed it to cool just slightly.
  3. Pour the prepared toffee over the crackers and bake at 350 for about 5 minutes.
  4. Scatter the chocolate over the toffee topped crackers and bake for an extra 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  5. While it’s still hot, smooth over with a knife/offset spatula.
  6. Allow to set at room temperature or harden in the fridge before serving shattered pieces.

For an 11 x 8 pan–multiply as needed.

    I had this at a party last week and it was dark and we were outside and I couldn’t see what it was made of. I asked the host the next day and it was this. I must make it.

    It’s been around for awhile says baby brother {who first requested this}. He had this at a Christmas party recently and asked me if I could make some more for him and his friends. Puppy chow has also been requested {yet another thing I didn’t know about, lol!}
