Amazing Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee
If you’ve been to Suburban Simplicity before, you know our family is a huge fan of Saltine Toffee (aka Christmas Crack). Well, this recipe for Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee takes the buttery, caramel-y chocolate treat one step further and adds…creamy peanut butter!
Although we love it, we’re not selfish when it comes to delicious treats. We love giving toffee away too! See how we wrap Saltine Toffee up as a cute teacher gift.
The marriage of chocolate and peanut butter is one of the all-time best dessert combinations. This recipe as well as these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars totally prove that!
This toffee is so good – it’s melt in your mouth wonderful. My stepson is a wiz at video. You see the video at the top of this post? Well, his motivation in helping produce it was enjoying a full tray of this stuff. How cool is that!
Peanut Butter Crack
If you’re looking for easy, this recipe is your thing. The only issue is you have to wait for it to cool and solidify once it’s done. That part is hard. Really hard once you’ve smelled the buttery toffee! 🙂 Did I mention also hard to put down? It is a bit like candy crack!
How To Make Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee
This recipe is so simple. The first step, create one layer of saltine crackers (the salty kind of course) on your pan lined with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
Next, combine the sugar and butter in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil for 3 minutes. This creates that yummy, buttery toffee!
Immediately after it’s done boiling, spread it on the saltines, evenly coating all the crackers. Yep, it’s gonna smell good!
Then, place in a 400 degree oven for 5-6 minutes. Once out of the oven, spread the melted peanut butter over the top. Then, top the peanut butter with chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Spread the chocolate morsels around in a thick layer. Oh, yes, a thick layer of chocolate!
When it’s slightly set, top with M&Ms or sprinkles! Cool, break into pieces, and enjoy!! Mouth-watering good!

Tips for Making Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee
- Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee best kept in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to eat.
- This stuff is so sticky, use parchment paper or your Silpat to assemble. (My Silpat mat is my go to baking and treat making kitchen item!! You need one of these so your recipes and cookies turn out amazing!) Just don’t use wax paper, you’ll have a sticky mess on your hands 🙂
- Do NOT use a pan with no sides. The hot toffee will get everywhere in your oven!
- Make sure the butter and sugar are truly boiling before you start timing for 3 minutes.
