Simply Irresistible Saltine Toffee Recipe
Toffee. One of my all-time favorite indulgences. The buttery goodness and crunch are simply melt in your mouth irresistible. This Traditional Homemade Almond Roca used to be our go-to candy recipe, but I think I found a new one! This Saltine Toffee is out of this world.
I see why it’s often called Christmas Crack. It’s highly addictive!
My husband is the king of Traditional Toffee or Almond Roca. It’s highly sought after. He makes it every holiday for his family and co-workers. (He shared his top secret recipe, so you might want to check it out!)
This Saltine Toffee has a slight advance over Almond Roca. It’s a little quicker to make than the traditional version, but the taste is just phenomenal!
There’s just something about the savory, crunchiness of the cracker that just works – and makes it so addicting!
How To Make Saltine Toffee
This recipe is so simple. The first step, create one layer of saltine crackers on your pan lined with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
Make sure your parchment paper extends past your crackers.
Next, combine the sugar and butter in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil for 3 minutes. (a teeny bit longer if at at higher elevations.) This creates that yummy, buttery toffee!
Immediately after it’s done boiling, spread it on the saltines, evenly coating all the crackers.
Then, place in a 400 degree oven for 5-6 minutes. Once out of the oven, spread the dark chocolate morsels on the top. When it’s slightly set sprinkle the nuts over the top! Cool, break into pieces and enjoy!!

Saltine Toffee With Dark Or Light Chocolate
Dark chocolate seems to be more popular in our house currently, so that’s how this recipe is made. Semi-sweet chocolate also works. So use what you prefer or have on hand. You really can’t go wrong.
The Secrets To the Best Saltine Toffee
- Going the extra step of roasting the pecans is a nice touch and adds a richer flavor. This step doesn’t have to be done if you’re in a hurry or just want to get eating as soon as possible.
- Walnuts are another option for a topping.
- Semi-sweet or dark chocolate morsels are good for this Saltine Toffee recipe.
- 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!)
- If using parchment, and to prevent any mishaps, make your parchment paper a little bigger than your assembled crackers. Also, make sure your crackers are tight together.
- Make sure the butter and sugar are truly boiling before you start timing for 3 minutes.
- If you’re at a higher elevation, you may need to cook your caramel a little longer.
The down sideThe upside to Saltine Toffee is that it doesn’t keep long, so is best eaten within a week or so. It can be frozen for 2-3 months.
- Because this recipe is made of mostly butter, using a high quality butter yields the perfect flavor.
