The combination of salty and sweet in this saltine toffee will have you hooked! With just 4 ingredients you’ll have the perfect edible gift for the holidays. Saltine toffee is a cracker toffee that hits the perfect balance of sweet and salty. It has a deep, rich flavor with a crunchy-yet-a-little-chewy texture.
It’s also known as soda cracker toffee, saltine cracker toffee, and Christmas crack. If you have never tried it before, I have to warn you that it can be very addictive, just like Peanut Brittle! Get all measurements, ingredients, and instructions in the printable version at the end of this post.
4 ounces saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
¾ cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Line a rimmed baking sheet with saltine crackers in single layer.
Combine butter and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely.
Bake in the preheated oven for 5 to 6 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Let sit 5 minutes.
Spread softened chocolate evenly. Sprinkle with pecans. Allow to cool completely, about 25 minutes.
Break toffee into pieces.
