Easy Holiday Dessert To Make

Christmas Toffee, The easy holiday dessert

We call it Christmas Toffee! Some call it Christmas Crack, whatever you call it, its simple, easy to make and is a hit for any party! 

I am not a food blogger but this is a recipe I have been making for many many years! It's always a hit!

Ingredients Needed:

- Box of Saltines

- 2 Sticks of Butter

- 1 Cup of Dark Brown Sugar

- A bag of white or semi-sweet dark chocolate

- Sprinkles, m&m's, pecans, candy canes


Set the oven to 350 degrees

Take a sheet pan lined with foil, then spray a little bit of non-stick cooking spray on top. 

Lay out as many saltines as you can to fill the tray. (If you have an odd shaped pan you and the saltines are not a perfect fit, you can break them in half to fill out the tray.

Take your 2 sticks of butter and place them in a sauce pan with the cup of brown sugar. Heat it up till it starts to boil and keep stirring it once it gets boiling for a couple minutes.

Remove from heat and immediately pour over all the crackers on the tray. I like to slowly pour it over each cracker. Then you can take your spatula and spread it out a little bit.

Place it in the oven for about 6-8 minutes. You will see the toffee bubbling (that's good!)

Take the tray out and immediately pour the chocolate chips over the tray, You can use either semi-sweet, milk chocolate or white chocolate. I haven't tried peanut butter yet but I think that would taste great too!

Once you see the chocolate chips getting shinny, take your spatula and spread out the chocolate. Take your favorite topping, it could be festive sprinkles or crushed peanuts. P.S. The white chocolate with peppermint candy canes is SO delicious!

Once it's cooled, place the tray in the fridge to set. An hour later take it out and you can break your toffee into pieces.

Store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze it for up to 3 months.

Take these to your next party and they will not last long!

This recipe could be used year round! Just change out the sprinkles and decorations according to the holiday! 

Let me know how yours turns out!
