Easy Saltine Cracker Candy

Recipe Name: 
Easy Saltine Cracker Candy

This is a quick and easy chocolate "toffee" candy made with saltine crackers and sprinkled with nuts


18 servings


4 ounces saltine crackers
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2-2 cups (9-12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut halves, optional


1. Liberally grease a 10 x 15-inch jelly roll pan. Lay saltine crackers in pan in a single layer. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over saltines.

3. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until toffee is bubbly.

4. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Allow to set for 5 minutes or until the chocolate chips are melted, then spread across the crackers with a knife. Sprinkle peanuts on top if using.* Allow candy to cool, and then chill before breaking into pieces.

Additional Notes: 

*Optional: For easier breaking, at this point you can score the candy with a knife at the cracker "seams". After candy is chilled, it will break more uniformly.

Preparation Time: 

10 minutes

Cooking Time: 

10 minutes + 5 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

This is a delicious, super-easy candy! It tastes like a candy bar (very sweet!) and is amazingly good, especially considering how simple it is to make! I think it's extra good with the peanuts added.

This is a really handy dessert and can be made in a jiffy. I also usually have all the ingredients already on hand, which is a real plus! My rating: 10/10

A variation

We found this recipe on Crystal's blog, and loved it! We had some butterscotch chips the next week, so we added 1/2 bag of chocolate and 1/2 bag of butterscotch, and boy, was the taste delicious!

New Family Fave!

My hubby is now requesting these on a regular basis :). My girls love being able to help by laying all the crackers in the pan and sprinkling the choc chips on top. Thanks!!

This was good, easy & very sweet. My four year old Son had fun laying the crackers down and "helping" Mom. I did have to send some over to the neighbor's house so that we wouldn't eat it all. I need to work on breaking it apart, mine didn't look near as nice as Tammy's picture. Thanks for another good recipe.
