    This Christmas crack (also known as candy crack) should be familiar to you. I’m sure many of you that have awesome grandma’s have tried this Christmas crack recipe before. ;) I shared my grandma’s saltine cracker toffee over the summer and this is just a glorified version.

    In my opinion, everything tastes better with chocolate and the M&M’s make it so festive. You could also top your candy crack with crushed saltines, sea salt, toasted coconut, slivered almonds, pecans or heath bits.

    The Christmas crack would also be perfect to add to your holiday plates with your favorite Christmas cookies. So easy, festive and delicious!

    Christmas Crack Toffee Recipe... you are going to want to put this recipe on your MUST MAKE list this year because it is seriously amazing. It takes SWEET and SALTY to a whole new level and it only takes 15 minutes to make!

    Ingredients

    • 50 saltine crackers (approx.)
    • 2 sticks salted butter (about 1 cup salted butter, cubed)
    • 1 cup soft light brown sugar (packed)
    • 2 cups chocolate chips
    • 1/2 to 1 cup M&M’s (or chopped nuts or sliced almonds)

    Instructions

    • Pre-heat oven to 325°F. Line a large jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray and then line the pan with saltine crackers.
    • Place the butter and sugar in a medium sized pot over low medium-low heat. Stir until the butter is melted. Once the butter has melted, bring to a boil for 3 minutes. Stir constantly.
    • Once it’s nice and bubbly and changed to more of a caramel color, remove pan from heat and pour evenly over saltine crackers. Spread mixture with a knife… however it doesn’t have to be perfect. Try to move fast during this part so the toffee doesn’t harden.
    • Place pan in the oven and bake for 7-9 minutes. The mixture will spread evenly over the crackers as it bakes.
    • Remove pan from and allow to cool slightly. Melt the chocolate and then pour over the top with a spatula. Sprinkle M&M’s (or nuts) on top and then place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Once chocolate has hardened break pieces off the foil and in an container. It will stay fresh for 1 – 2 weeks.
