Super Easy Saltine Toffee . . . after just one bite of this scrumptious candy, you will be hooked. It’s simply incredible!

Saltine Toffee - no one will believe how easy it is to make this addicting candy. Everyone loves it!

I needed some last minute “thank you” treats for some friends last night. I pulled out a recipe for saltine toffee that I have been wanting to try for months. It only calls for 5 ingredients, so I knew it would come together quickly.

Recipe for easy saltine toffee. If you love toffee, this recipe is a must try!

Not only is saltine toffee easy to make, it is beyond delicious.  I don’t even know if I should buy Saltines anymore, because I will be tempted to make more of these. There is a reason these are commonly referred to as “crack”. And it’s not just because they are made with crackers.  They are so addicting!

Easy to make, hard to resist, this Saltine Toffee is always devoured instantly!

It’s a good thing we gave most of these little goodies away, because I couldn’t stop eating them. If you like toffee like I do, you have got to give this recipe a try!!

Every bite of this cracker toffee is simply decadent. An easy candy recipe that is sure to be a family favorite!

Tips:  I use this half sheet baking pan, and I can fit 54 whole saltines. If your pan is smaller, you can break crackers to fill in the edges. The chocolate takes awhile to set up, but if you are in a hurry, you can pop the pan in the fridge for a few minutes to speed things up.

Super Easy Saltine Toffee (AKA Crack)
Addicting toffee treat made with saltine crackers.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes


  • 1 1/2 sleeves of saltine crackers (I used 54 crackers)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I use semi sweet)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds or chopped pecans, preferably toasted


Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Spray with non-stick spray. Arrange saltines in a single layer over the parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine butter and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil for 3 minutes. Pour over the crackers and spread evenly.

Bake at 400° for 6 minutes or till hot and bubbly. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let sit for a few minutes till the chocolate melts, then use an offset spatula to spread chocolate evenly. Top with nuts.

Cool completely and break into pieces. This process takes a few hours, so I sometimes put mine in the fridge to speed things up a bit.

Handy tools for making this recipe:

Half Sheet Baking Pan
Heavy Saucepan
Nut Chopper
Offset spatula (for spreading the chocolate)

I used pecans this time around, but it is also fantastic with sliced almonds.

  1. Your recipe doesn’t show.

    • My site had a temporary glitch and apparently all of my recipe cards disappeared. 🙁 They are all working again, so you should be able to see the recipe now. So sorry about that!

  2. I make this every Christmas, we call it Christmas Crack lol! I can’t have the ingredients on hand any other time, it is waaayyy to tempting. I’ve never added nuts before though, I’ll have to give it a try.

  3. Hi! I made this and it came out chewy…any suggestions? It was still yummy, but chewy…hard for my daughter with braces to eat! haha

    I love this stuff. My mom in law makes it but for 2 yrs in a row it tastes really soft, I’m not sure what she’s doing but it’s not crunchy at all. I’ll have to try this recipe .)

  5. This is one of our favorite holiday treats. It is so much easier than making real toffee and having to use a candy thermometer. I also printed out and am excited to try the recipe you shared for Sour Cream Apple Bars. I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog. I guess that is what happens when you start following links. 🙂

    So …. I've made this 2x now and it seriously is addicting — and oh so easy! Thanks so much for this one! Loooove it! My dd thinks I should try it with white chocolate on top sometime – don't know if they'd taste as good?

    Have you ever made the thin mint girl scout cookies before w/Ritz? mmmm Yummy!

  7. Just made these today using white sugar & mixed nuts because that's what I had in my cupboard. All I can say is yuuum! Thanks for such an easy treat.

  8. The Mom @ Babes in Hairland says:

    Those look so yummy. I should have read this earlier today when I first saw it on my dashboard. Would have made a great FHE treat! Next week I guess! Wish I could join you down in Utah County this weekend. But my in-laws are heading out on their mission and so we've got lots of fun family stuff going on. Good luck w/it all though! 🙂

  9. Lucy Marie says:

    Yum! That looks so good. I want some right now. I'm going grocery shopping soon – perhaps I'll have to throw some saltines in the cart?

  10. Oh dear goodness this looks amazing!! I am soo giving this one a try!
