Years ago I remember being at a family reunion and I tried a graham cracker toffee bar. It was amazing and delicious, and I was SHOCKED that the base was a graham cracker. I had to keep eating, bar after bar, for taste testing purposes.

Years later I shared the recipe for those Brickle Bars on my blog. They are still one of our family’s favorite treats. And they are so easy too. From the time I start making them until the time I eat them it’s less than half an hour!

A big plate of those bars goes fast with my family.

Recently as I perusing pinterest, I saw a photo for “SALTINE TOFFEE.” My mouth gaped open (seriously). Why had I not thought to make my brickle bars with saltines???

Well my friends, today, it has happened. I am happy to say the brickle bars can now be made using saltines. And the result is amazing.

The saltines have a saltier base (DUH) than a graham cracker, so the sweet and salty combo shines through on these bars!

How to make Saltine Cracker Toffee:

  • Pan melt your butter, then add your sugar. Bring this mixture to a rolling boil.
  • Line 40 saltine crackers on a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking sheet.
  • Pour mixture over crackers, slowly, making sure that all the crackers have been covered in butter
  • Sprinkle generously with chopped pecans
  • Bake this for about 15 minutes. You want to make sure that the crackers look brown and caramelized.
  • Use a small spatula to remove the hot cracker toffee from the pan and place it on parchment paper (or wax paper).
  • Melt your chocolate chips and spread over each cracker. I pour my melted chocolate into a large Ziploc bag, then snip the corner and drizzle generously over each cracker. Works like a charm.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened, store these in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. ENJOY!

    Almost the same as Christmas Crack- google it

  2. Very tasty!, I want try it but I don’t. If I have opportunity will try.
    Thanks!!

  3. I must have done something very wrong. I was so disappointed with the way these turned out after reading all the five star reviews. It tasted and looked just like a saltine cracker with chocolate and nuts on top. If they are done right, are you supposed to recognize the cracker on the bottom? Mine looked like a saltine cracker with all its little holes and ridge edges. What did I do wrong? I don’t think I’ll waste the butter, chocolate and especially the nuts on these again.

  4. I made these tonight, very tasty. The next time I will add a dash of sea salt on top!

  5. That sounds good. It take only half an hour to make Saltine Toffee, right? I will try.

  6. I’ve made these before after trying them and getting the recipe from a friend at work. You don’t have to go through the extra step and trouble of frosting with a ziplock bag.

    Where is the recipe?  I’ve looked for over an hour & don’t see anywhere how much of anything to use except 40 crackers, butter & sugar – really aggravating that you promote this but don’t list the ingredients  & their quantities .

Well, the answer is quite obvious: you’re a pack-follower, and not able or willing to think originally. It’s the same condition that results in you using outdated idioms that actually mean the opposite of your intention (i.e. “works like a charm” – given modern beliefs in the effectiveness of magic, just what are you trying to say here?).

    WHAT A PRICK!!!! NEVER CAN IMAGINE WHAT WILL COME OUT OF THIS TYPE OF CRIMINAL!!!!

  9. The salty/sweet goodness here? It’s OUT OF CONTROL.

    Simply the way I like it.

    I experienced childhood with saltines with chicken soup… however I think Imma like it much better along these lines ???? Pinned!

    I share your article on my site.

  10. Pretty good!! Here’s my suggestions: Bring to a boil on medium high and then allow to boil for the full 3 minutes without stirring. Space the crackers so they have some gaps between them. Whe…

    Wondering if you couldn’t just pour the chocolate over the entire pan and then break it up into pieces?  That’s what I do when I make butter toffee.

  12. Mary Redler

    I baked 13 min. But one side of pan got too brown n tasted a little burnt!…I will try again…n watch more closely for Browning!!….I thought I was watching the bubbling…

  13. o gosh, Looks like it will make me forget my diet plan today
