  • 40 Saltine Crackers
  • 1 lb Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 pkg Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Line a baking sheet with foil (or parchment paper) and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Lay out saltines on the baking sheet so that they cover the pan, making sure they are all going in the same direction.
  • In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, let butter and brown sugar melt and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and let it simmer for approx 5 minutes. Don't over cook the toffee mixture, it will burn and then it will be ruined : (
  • Remove pan from the heat and slowly pour the mixture over the crackers evenly.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Once done, remove pan from oven and top with chocolate chips (evenly) on the saltine/toffee sheet.
  • As the chocolate melts, using a butter knife or non stick spatula, spread the chocolate across the top of the toffee.
  • Add your favorite toppings to the chocolate.
  • Let the Christmas Crack cool completely (in the refrigerator works best to cool it quickly).
  • Break the bark into smaller pieces.
  • ENJOY!
