One thing I have found extremely helpful is my stash of quick and easy recipes that are so good everyone wants the recipe. Saltine Toffee (aka Christmas Crack) is one of those recipes. It takes just a few simple ingredients, a little time, and a lot of self control. It is that good!I was a bit skeptical at first – crackers in a sweet snack? No need to worry – the flavors meld together so well that it is hard to believe that this delectable treat has a cracker base.
This recipe is great for any gathering and would also make a great holiday gift.


1 sleeve saltine crackers (4 oz.)
2 sticks butter (1 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray with butter flavored cooking spray. Place crackers in one layer on cookie sheet. Melt together butter and brown sugar and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over crackers and spread over all. Sprinkle pecans evenly over top. Bake for approximately 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Let sit until chips melt and spread with spatula. Place in refrigerator for an hour or two until chocolate is set. Break into pieces and enjoy.
