Giving candy as a gift is my thing. It’s easier than going shopping and hoping to find something my friends and family will like and not return. Plus, what do you give to the person who has everything?

Creating cracker toffee is so easy. And the possibilities of flavors are endless. You can use graham cracker, saltines, club cracker…and the toppings? So many to choose from.

One of my favorite holiday recipes on the blog is this Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti. I love the sweet and tart cranberry paired with the salty, crunchy pistachio. So why not do the same on top of some saltine toffee?

I set to work quickly and it came together just how I imagined! I used melted white chocolate (this is my favorite) as the base for toppings. I think it would be great with dark chocolate too, but maybe not as pretty?

If you’re looking for more toffee recipes, I’ve got you covered. You may remember this White Chocolate Pecan Toffee I made a few weeks ago. So good. You’ll also find instructions on How to Make Saltine Toffee. You can go wrong you guys. Unless of course you don’t follow my instructions!

Tell me, what’s your favorite homemade treat to give as gifts? If you follow me on instagram you’ll see in my stories that I’m baking sweets like a crazy person. We give toffee as gifts every year…and this classic English Toffee is a favorite. It’s requested by many people every year, we make nearly 20 batches a season!

If you’re looking for fudge, my favorites would be a classic Chocolate Fudge (we call it Fannie May Fudge). I’ve also got Egg Nog Fudge, Gingerbread Fudge, and Andes Mint Fudge. Looking to make something even more impressive? How about truffles? Start with a classic Chocolate Truffle, and from there you’ll want to try these Peppermint Truffles, Egg Nog Truffles, and Samoa Truffles.

    1. I love dried cranberries with white chocolate (and pistachios too)! I think they need more attention on my blog 🙂
