Saltine Toffee

by Melissa on December 28, 2008

This is another treat that I made to giveaway this Christmas season. I made this last year as well, but I don’t think I cooked the toffee mixture enough since it was kind of gooey. Not wanting to make that mistake again, I think I overcooked it a bit this year. The toffee was almost a bit powdery and the chocolate layer kept separating. It tasted delicious though, so that’s all that counts right?


Saltine Toffee

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • saltines – enough to line your baking sheet
  • 1-2 cups semi chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I did not use)

Preheat oven to 400. Line your baking sheet with foil. Neatly place your saltines on the foil lined baking sheet.

In a sauce pan, melt butter and add brown sugar. Allow butter & sugar to caramelize and boil for 2-3 minutes. Pour mixture over the saltines.

Bake saltines in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the saltines. Allow it to rest for 2 minutes – enough for chocolate chips to melt. Using a rubber spatula or spreader, spread the melted chocolate over the saltines to evenly coat. Sprinkle the top with chopped nuts.

Refrigerate to harden the chocolate. Break into random pieces and enjoy!
