  • Saltine cracker toffee recipe -seriously addicting and only takes 15 minutes to make!

    With Mother’s Day coming up I thought I would share one of my gramma’s favorite recipes: Saltine cracker toffee. My Gramma is such a wonderful Mother and Grandmother and I strive to be like her daily.

    There are three things you can always find at gramma’s house. 1.Tang 2. Homemade caramels and 3. Saltine cracker toffee. Okay I lied… you can usually find ice cream, chocolate covered raisins and lots of other yummy treats too. My grampa has a sweet tooth and I think I inherited it. ;) I was lucky enough to get some of this saltine cracker toffee on my visit this past weekend. It’s such a super easy and yummy recipe! Give it a try. It will soon be one of your favorites too!

    Saltine cracker toffee recipe -seriously addicting and only takes 15 minutes to make!


    • 50 saltine crackers
    • 2 sticks butter (cubed)
    • 1 cup soft light brown sugar (packed)


    • Pre-heat oven to 325 F.
    • Line 9×13 jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Spray foil with cooking spray and then line pan with saltine crackers.
    • Place butter in a medium sized pot over low medium/low heat. Stir until butter is slightly melted then add sugar. Once butter is melted, bring to a boil over medium heat for 3 minutes, or until it thickens and sugar has dissolved. Stir constantly. You want the butter and sugar to be combined and turn a  amber caramel color.
    • After 3 minutes, remove pan from heat and pour evenly over saltine crackers. Spread mixture with a knife… however it doesn’t have to be perfect.
    • Place pan in oven and bake for 7-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Do not over bake. The mixture will spread evenly over the crackers as it bakes.
    • Remove pan from oven and then take foil off of the pan. Allow the toffee to cool and then break pieces off of foil.


    You can also place 1/2 cup chocolate chips on top right when it comes out of the oven. Allow the chocolate to melt and then spread it out with a spatula, then freeze for 20 minutes. Sometimes I add slivered almonds as well.
