Christmas Cracker Toffee


Today I give you the most addicting Christmas goodie to date.  This stuff is so easy to make, it's almost embarrassing, yet saying that, this was the first year I made it myself.

My sister brought this treat to Christmas many moons ago, and I hadn't thought of it since, until I saw a photo of it online a few weeks ago.  I took it as part of our cookie exchange last weekend and finally opened up a bag of it last night after dinner.

Hey, I held out for a week, that is pretty good!


The great thing about this dessert?  You can freeze it for up to 3 months {maybe longer}.  I stored it in cute holiday bags and every time I've opened our deep freeze those darn cute holiday bags have been staring back at me.

Please come be my neighbor so I can give you a bag.

With that being said, have I told you I've only done about 15% of my Christmas shopping?  I always seem to wait to the last minute, especially these last few years.  With kids, it's harder to actually get out of the house without them, so to find a day to myself {because that is how I like to shop} usually is the reason why I takes me forever!

But, I think it will be later this week.  Hopefully.

But, I also turned on the news this morning and they are talking about our first really huge snowstorm for Thursday....which gets me pumped, but may delay my shopping.


Maybe I'll just have to stay home and open another bag of this toffee?

Christmas Cracker Toffee
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 stick butter
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. chocolate chips

On a greased baking sheet, spread out saltine crackers.  Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until gooey.  Pour over crackers and bake at 350 degrees for five minutes.  

Remove from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips.  Let sit for a few minutes until the chocolate chips begin to melt.  Then, spread over crackers evenly with a spatula.

Stick in the freezer for an hour, or until chocolate hardens.  With a metal spatula, break into small pieces and put into gift containers or baggies.  Store in the freezer until ready to eat or give away.


Have you baked for your friends/family/neighbors/co-workers yet?

Tell me what you've made!

  1. I make something similar for Christmas Eve. They are salted toffee bars that use graham crackers instead of saltines. I love the idea of saltines!
