Holiday Baking: Chocolate Saltine Toffee

This was a new recipe for me this year, and it turned out so good! When my husband found out the toffee was made with saltines, he questioned it a little. But he agreed that they tasted delicious! And they're so simple!

You'll need: 30 to 40 saltine crackers, 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), 1 cup brown sugar, packed, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, and 1 1/2 to 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chops


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil and spray down with cooking spray. The foil is 100%  necessary!

2. Line saltine crackers in a single layer on bottom of pan.

3. Combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil in pan on the stove. Stir constantly. Once boil is reached, reduce heat and simmer (uncovered) for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Stir frequently while simmering to avoid bubbling over or burning.

4. Remove from heat after mixture has thickened. Wait 30 seconds and then add the vanilla extract. Stir together.

5. Pour mixture over saltine crackers.

6. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the toffee has become bubbly.

7. Let rest after removing pan for 3-5 minutes.

8. Sprinkle chocolate chips over toffee mixture and wait 3-5 minutes. This will allow them to melt enough that you will be able to smooth them down with a spatula. You can add other add-ins as this point, if you'd like, such as: nuts, peanut butter chips, etc. I liked it the way it was, but the options are endless!

9. Let cool very well and refrigerate until hardened. Break into pieces. Size is up to you! I had variable sizes at the end, as you can see. Store in airtight container at room temp for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 4 months (if they can last that long!)!

10. Enjoy!

P.S. I had more pictures of the process, but I accidentally deleted them. Sorry. :( If you need more clarification on the directions, please let me know by emailing me or commenting, and I'll be happy to help!

Hope you love these as much as we did! They're definitely a new Christmas treat staple in our house!
