Easy Saltine Cracker Candy

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


Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy

Note: The current photo of this recipe doesn't have peanuts on top.


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.


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!!


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!
