Easy Christmas Peppermint Toffee

Don't let the simpleness of this recipe fool you. Saltine Cracker Toffee is one of the best tricks in the book for your Christmas Candy making! Crush up some candy canes and you've got yourself a festive holiday treat in just minutes.

Does making Christmas candy intimidate you? Because it intimidates me! I’ve never gotten on the Christmas candy train until I discovered how easy it really could be!

The crackers in this recipe soak up the caramel toffee perfectly, giving you a crunchy toffee that tastes like you bought it from you a candy store.

Trust us when we say if we can make Christmas candy, you can too!

How to Store Saltine Cracker Toffee

If you have any left over after the first day, then it’s important you store it right so it doesn’t go to waste!

We recommend wrapping this toffee in foil, and placing in an airtight container in the fridge. This helps keep any unwanted air and moisture out, keeping your toffee from getting too soft, or too crunchy.

This will last for about 6-7 days, wrapped and in the container.

If you are making this a week ahead of time, You can definitely freeze your toffee too! Remove from the freezer a few hours before you’re ready to eat it, and you’re good to go!

We’d recommend keeping it frozen for up to 30 days, but can’t guarantee the same texture or flavor after that time.

Saltine Cracker Toffee Toppings

I love how versatile and simple this recipe is. We used white chocolate in this recipe, but have a delicious English Toffee version using milk chocolate that we love!

You can easily personalize this and make it for any holiday! For Christmas, we love this peppermint version, but you can switch it up with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, your favorite nuts, or festive sprinkles.

Here are a few more topping ideas for your Saltine Cracker Toffee:

Sliced Almonds
Cadbury eggs
Caramel drizzle
Colored chocolate drizzle
Candy corn
Red hot’s

This really is the perfect snack or dessert, any time of year. Change it up for your favorite holiday or season and let us know what you create in the comments below!

  • 40 salted saltine crackers
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped crushed candy canes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a large jelly roll pan (mine was 15x10") with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Lay the saltine crackers evenly on the pan (I put mine really close together so that they were touching).
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Bring it to a boil and let it boil for three minutes without stirring.
  4. After three minutes, pour and spread the hot brown sugar mixture evenly over the saltine crackers.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the white chocolate chips across the toffee. Let them melt for a couple of minutes and then use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly across the toffee (like frosting).
  7. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top of the melted chocolate. Let the toffee and chocolate cool completely (I put mine in the fridge to help it set up quickly). Break the toffee into bite-size pieces.
  8. To store, keep in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for a couple of months.
