Christmas Crack!

This is apparently an old standard that I’d never heard of until this year. It was fine, but again, lots of other things I think I’d prefer to spend my time making…

Super easy, at least.


  •              1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
  •             3/4 cup brown sugar
  •            About 40 Saltines.
  •             1 bag of chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet).
  •             Toppings as desired. I used m&ms, wasn’t crazy about it, too much competing chocolate. If I made it again, I’d use almonds or something.

Preheat oven to 400. Line a jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet with sides) with saltines along the bottom.

Toss butter and brown sugar into a pot and bring to a boil.  STIR CONSTANTLY until completely blended and then keep stirring once it is boiling. When it easily pulls away from side of pan it’s done. Remove and immediately pour over crackers and spread to cover entirely before it cools and gets too sticky. Then bake this in the oven for 5-6 minutes.

After you remove from oven, cool for a few minutes, then pour chocolate chips over the top and when they start to melt spread around to cover the toffee. If they don’t melt quickly enough you can put back in the oven for a minute or two. Then top with toppings and let set in refrigerator for a few hours (or freezer for about 45 minutes).

  1. This really is crack in my house! Couple things for you to try: butter/brown sugar should be an equal ratio. Semi sweet or dark chocolate morsls are the only way to go! Sprinkle it with coarse sea salt and you will be in heaven.
