Chocolate Saltine Toffee – The perfect addition to your Christmas baking. Saltine cracker toffee is ready quickly, is easy to make and everyone loves it!
There are a few things that I look forward to every year during the holidays, and anything with toffee always catches my attention. These Chocolate Toffee Bars are a definite favorite. But there is just something about toffee belongs during the holiday season.
Chocolate peanut butter balls are one of my all time favorite treats, but this saltine toffee is down right addicting. Which is why it is also known as Christmas crack.
In my family this has always been called Saltine Toffee, but it goes by lots of different names. Some people call it Christmas Crack because it is so darn addicting. I recently heard it called Pine Bark as well. It really doesn’t matter what you call it, you are going to be making batch after batch of this.
What Do You Need For Christmas Crack
- Saltine Crackers
- Brown Sugar
- Chocolate Chips
- Sprinkles or other toppings
This is one of those recipes that is so easy to make, you can really have it done in about 20 minutes and then you just have to wait for the chocolate to set. Plus there are lost of different variations you can make instead of Saltine Crackers.
Can I Use Other Crackers
Yes, absolutely! Pretty much any cracker works. I even have a recipe for Graham Cracker Toffee already on the blog.

How To Make Saltine Toffee
- Start by lining a 11×17 baking sheet with foil. This really just helps with cleanup and getting the toffee out of the pan easily.
- Arrange 1 sleeve of saltine crackers in a single layer in the oven.
- In a saucepan over medium heat mix together the brown sugar and butter until it starts to boil, stirring frequently. Boil the mixture for 3 minutes, not stirring at all.
- Pour the mixture over the crackers, and quickly spread so it covers all the crackers.
- Place in the oven and bake for 7 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the toffee. Put it back in the oven (have the oven turned off) for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate.
- Remove from the oven and use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the toffee.
- Immediately spread with any toppings or decorations you are going to use. Let the chocolate completely harden before slicing.
This toffee lasts for about 2 weeks in an air tight container at room temperature. And it is great to freeze and make ahead as well.
There are lots of things you can sprinkle over saltine toffee to make it festive and delicious. I like to use sprinkles for Christmas, but you can use anything you like!
- Chopped Pecans
