Toffee Crack

Only a couple more days to go, are you ready???  I think I am. 
All the gifts are wrapped and under the tree. 

My favorite Christmas ornament :)
All of them except the gift my husband and I are giving each other....we've been walking on it for about 3 weeks now. 
A new ceramic tile floor for our bathroom. 
Don't we give each other exciting gifts - ha ha. 
Last year we gave each other a new roof for the house. 
The year before that we gave each other a flat screen tv.  Have you seen the tv stands for flat screens lately?  So many more to choose from since we bought ours - not fair.

Anyway...I have lots of baking and cooking to do over the next couple of days.  My in-laws are coming from Texas and we are super excited to see them.  My father in-law loves this pie, so I'm going to make it for him for Christmas Eve.  I'm also making this for breakfast Christmas morning - so yummy!

I've also got to make more Toffee Crack.  I made it last weekend and gave it out as favors for our Christmas party. So yummy!  Got to run ~ lots to do!  Merry Christmas!

Toffee Crack

Saltine Crackers
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 bag chocolate chips

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  Place saltine crackers all over foil.  Make sure the entire cookie sheet is covered in saltines.  Melt butter in a saucepan and add brown sugar.  Stir over medium heat until carmelized (about 3 minutes).
Pour toffee over crackers and spread evenly with a spatula.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and pour bag of chocolate chips all over toffee.  As they melt, spread evenly.
Top with chopped pecans or other nuts if you like.  Place in freezer to set chocolate.

Get ready to be addicted to Toffee Crack!


  1. We serve this at the B&B that I work with! It is truly awesome stuff! We sub crushed candy canes for toppings during the holiday season! Merry Christmas to you and yours! I truly enjoy your creations on the blog!

  2. Me and my hubby dont "exchange" gifts either. We get something we can both enjoy. This year it was a huge chocolate brown leather mac daddy sectional from Havertys!!! But I wouldn't mind some diamonds!!! lol

  3. Sweet and salty--what a perfect combo!

    I love your Diet Coke ornament because I have one similar on MY tree. ;)

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I need to make this candy. My mom used to make it in the 80's and I haven't had it since.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. I love love love the name of this toffee. I am making it today.

    Love your ornament. I have one on my tree too! I will drink it, along with my toffee. ;)

  7. Yum! I need to make me some of this!! Love the ornament! I need a Diet Pepsi one!

  8. That is a great ornament and I am a fan of that Toffee Crack! We have a similar recipe in our "Savor the Moment" cookbook - it is highly addictive! I just signed up to follow your fabulous blog - stop by and visit me at - I am doing a Waterford Crystal giveaway right now if you are interested. Looking forward to your next post - Cheers!

  9. Just stumbled upon your blog. I too am obsessed with my mixer and quite frankly, anything pink in general.

  10. This is seriously good stuff. I've made it with ritz crackers, saltines, graham crackers, and tortillas! Whatever you use it's good. I don't add the chocolate when I make it for us.
