Saltine Toffee – have you guys heard of it? Also known as Christmas Crack and easily one of our favorite treats we make every year around the holidays.
This popular Christmas candy is super addictive and usually made with saltine crackers covered in a layer of sweet toffee, and smothered in melted chocolate.
There are tons of variations across the web — usually topped with chopped nuts, sprinkles, peanut butter – the possibilities are endless!
If your kids are home from school for the holidays, these make a super easy and fun baking project and I’ve got 7+ fun ways that you can decorate them!
These guys are the Almond Joy ones with shredded coconut and chopped almonds — SO good!!
First, you’re going to line a large baking sheet with either parchment paper or foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Then you arrange your crackers to fill up your baking sheet. You can use saltine crackers, graham crackers or use a mix of both like I did!
You can use your favorite chocolate chips. For this batch I used:
- dark chocolate
- white chocolate
- peanut butter chips
Butterscotch chips and cinnamon chips would be awesome too!
Pop the tray back in the oven for another 90 seconds (for the chocolate to melt) then spread with an offset spatula.
TOPPINGS – THE FUN PART!!
This is where you have fun and just go nuts with sprinkling on whatever you like. Here a few fun ideas I used:
- White chocolate chips with crushed candy canes with the white chocolate chips
- White chocolate chips with festive holly snowflake sprinkles

- Peanut butter chips with chocolate jimmies sprinkles and chopped peanuts
- Dark chocolate chips with festive non-pareil sprinkles
