Servings - 32 pieces


  • 40 crackers 1 sleeve
  • 1 cup butter salted is best
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp Christmas sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add a single layer of saltine crackers to the lined baking sheet.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and then stir in the brown sugar and bring to a bubbling boil. Once bubbles form, stir continuously for 2 minutes and then stir in the vanilla or almond extract.
  • Pour the butter-brown sugar evenly over the crackers and spread to even out, if needed.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 6 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 2-3 minutes and they will soften. Using a cake frosting spreader or a knife, evenly spread the softened chocolate chips to form the chocolate layer.
  • While the chocolate layer is still soft, sprinkle the Christmas sprinkles over the top and lightly press into the chocolate.
  • Let cool to room temperature for about 2 hours.
  • Once cooled, break the toffee into bite size pieces.
  • Store Cracker Toffee "Christmas Crack" in a resealable container for up to 5 days. Beyond that time frame, it can be stored in the freezer.
    (But I predict it will be gone before 5 days!)
