Saltine Cracker Candy

Pin It Now!

Have you ever heard of saltine cracker candy? It's a delicious toffee like treat that my sister first introduced me to, years ago. It's been called crack because once you take a bit you won't be able to stop till it's gone; it's so addicting. 

Last night we went over to a friend's house for eggplant parmesan panini sammies for dinner. It was our first time having eggplant and I have to say, it was delicious! I decided to bring over the ingredients for saltine cracker candy to make for dessert. It's incredibly simple, only requires 5 ingredients, and it's a big hit.

This would be a great treat to add to the Superbowl party food spread. 


Saltine Cracker Candy

35 to 40 saltine crackers
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 12 ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
heath pieces 
sea salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

Line a large jelly roll pan with foil, spray with non-stick cooking spray. 

Arrange the saltine crackers salt side down, in a single layer. 

In a saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and allow the mixture to turn a caramel color, it will take a few minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately pour over the crackers. Use a rubber spatula to make sure the crackers are covered evenly. 

Put the pan into the oven for 3 minutes, or just until it starts to bubble. Watch it closely the entire time. 

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle on chocolate chips. As soon as the chips start to melt, spread with a butter knife until the chocolate is evenly distributed. 

Generously sprinkle on heath pieces, then add a few sprinkles of sea salt for a sweet and salty twist. 

Transfer the pan to the freezer for 20 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!
