On the 4th Day of Sugar my true love gave to me . . . . Saltine Toffee – a.k.a. Christmas Crack
I’m just going to be upfront and honest about this saltine toffee . . .it’s highly addictive. There is a reason it’s called Christmas Crack, you really can’t stop eating it. Not only is it ridiculously good, but it’s incredibly easy to make. If you haven’t seen or heard of this, then you’ve been living under a rock. It’s all over the internet and I bet you could probably find it on one of your cookbooks.
It’s buttery, salty, crispy, sweet, chewy, chocolaty, aaaand it’s really naughty.
Another great and easy neighbor gift to give out.
- 45 saltine crackers (give or take a few)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups chocolate chips (I used half semi-sweet, half milk chocolate)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a jelly roll pan lined with foil, spray lightly with nonstick spray. Line the saltine crackers side by side until the entire pan is filled (You'll have to break some in half to fit)
In a saucepan, melt butter and sugar together. Bring to boil and cook for 4 minutes.
Pour the caramel evenly over the saltines then place in oven to bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and iImmediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Put back in the oven for 1 minute then carefully spread chocolate chips evenly across the top.
Let cool completely. (I popped mine in the fridge for about an hour.) Once cool, break into. Store in an airtight container.
We liked this best cold, so I kept mine stored in the refrigerator, but do what ever you prefer.
