If you’ve never made saltine toffee your kinda missing out. It’s sometimes called “Christmas crack”, and there are recipes for it swarming the web. I have a couple other recipes here for “cheater” toffee (as I like to call it) that use saltines. This white chocolate toffee and the “original” saltine toffee that is all over the web.
I saw the idea awhile ago to make saltine churro toffee and since I made a churro version of our favorite family toffee, I decided to do the same with the saltine toffee (in case you can’t tell, we love churros in this family!).
I am giving you fair warning that this stuff is dangerously delicious! And the real problem is it’s so simple to make that you’re going to want to make it over and over.

How to Make Saltine Toffee
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and place saltines in a single layer.
- Bring brown sugar and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once it begins bubbling, let it boil without stirring for 3 minutes.
- Pour the brown sugar mixture over the crackers and place the pan in the oven. Bake 4 minutes or until bubbly.
- Cool for a minute or so and add chocolate chips on top. Spread over the toffee and sprinkle with toppings if desired.
- Cool completely and then break into pieces.
It really is easy!
How to store this toffee:
- Once cooled, break or cut the toffee into bite-sized pieces.
- Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Saltine toffee can be frozen up to 3 months (and doesn’t need to be thawed before serving).
A few helpful tips:
- Use good quality chocolate chips. White chocolate chips
- Be sure the stir the brown sugar and butter while it melts and that the sugar is dissolved before it starts to boil. Also, make sure the entire mixture comes to a boil and not just around the edges. Following these steps will help you avoid any graininess. Also, it’s not the end of the world if your toffee does turns grainy, it will still be delicious!
- Make sure the chocolate is full set before you try breaking it into pieces.
I love the combination of sweet and salty and this toffee nails it! It will be the biggest hit anywhere you decided to take it this holiday. If you decided not to share and keep it to yourself, no judgment here!
