  • 35 saltine crackers a little less than a full sleeve
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips optional
  • 1/2 cup crushed nuts optional


  • Preheat an oven to 400⁰F.
  • Prepare a 10 X 15 baking pan by covering with non-stick aluminum foil and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Line the baking pan with crackers [35 crackers], trying not to overlap the crackers, and set aside near the stove.
  • Place butter [1 cup] and light brown sugar [1 cup] into a small saucepan and set heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil the mixture for 3 more minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat and carefully pour the mixture evenly over the crackers. Spread the mixture if necessary. Use a fork to push any floating crackers under the toffee mixture.
  • Carefully move the pan of crackers into the 400⁰F preheated oven and bake for 6 minutes. Do not overbake.
  • Carefully remove the crackers from the oven and covered with chocolate chips if using. Allow the chocolate to completely melt before spreading the chocolate.
  • While the chocolate is still wet, top with crushed nuts or sprinkles.
  • Allow the cracker toffee to cool completely before breaking or cutting into pieces.
  • Store the cracker candy in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
