Saltine Toffee Candy RecipeYou all know I’m not exactly a pro in the kitchen. I’m barely on amateur level, to be honest! I can make a few things pretty well, though, and Saltine Toffee is one of them. My aunt introduced me to this fun treat years ago. I don’t make it often because it’s not exactly health food, and it goes way too fast when I do. Mostly because I eat it! The other night, I realized that I never made the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that I had planned for the holidays, so I decided to switch things up a bit and try a new take on the Saltine Toffee recipe.

How to Make Saltine Toffee with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips

Ingredients:

  • 1 full sleeve of Saltine crackers, plus a few to crumble on top
  • Two cups of peanut butter chocolate chips. These are the kind that have both types of chips in them. I was a little short, so I cut up a baking chocolate bar that we didn’t use to make up the difference.
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed

Directions for Saltine Toffee Candy

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, or cover with foil. Line the cookie sheet with your sleeve of saltines, in a single layer. Try to make sure there aren’t any major gaps. If there are a few spaces, it’s not the end of the world, but you don’t want huge blank spots in between the crackers.

  • In a small saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat until it really starts boiling. Stir throughout the make sure it’s all mixed together. Um, I know you’re not supposed to stir with a metal spoon because the handle can get hot, so just ignore that little faux pas and use something that won’t burn your hand!

  •  Pour the concoction over your crackers. Try to get a little on every cracker. I had to use a spatula to spread it out. It will thin and bubble over to nearby crackers in the next step if you miss a few spots.
  • Place the cookie sheet in the over and let bake for 5 minutes. While you’re waiting, get your chocolate peanut butter chips and put them in a bowl. It’s just easier to mix everything together for the next step.

  •  Take the cookie sheet out of the oven (I think it goes without saying to use an oven mitt!). Immediately pour the chocolate peanut butter chips over the molten-hot toffee mixture. They’ll melt right in. Use a spatula to spread them around.

  • Stick the cookie sheet in your fridge for about half an hour. Once the mixture hardens, use a spatula to lift it up, then break it into bark-like pieces.
  • Eat your delicious Saltine Toffee. Maybe share with the family. Or not. Keep it in the fridge, though, I think it tastes better cold.

Helpful hint- don’t try to clean the stove top when it’s still hot. You’ll burn your hand. Uh, not that I know this from personal experience or anything. I’m way smarter than that! Really, I am!

I think I’m going to try this with graham crackers next. Has anyone ever done that? What other variations on the Saltine Toffee recipe would you try?

  6. I love making these! We usually make them at Christmas for our food gifts. For variations, try chopping up some Ande’s Mints for mint toffee, or adding chopped nuts to the top for an extra crunch!
