Ingredients You’ll Need For Our Saltine Cracker English Toffee:
- Salted saltine crackers
- Brown sugar
- Milk chocolate chips
- Chopped nuts
How To Make Our Saltine Cracker English Toffee Recipe:
To begin this recipe, start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.
Then, line a large jelly roll pan (15 in x10 in) with aluminum foil, making sure that the sides are all covered.
Now spray the aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray.
Once the foil is prepared, line the saltine crackers along the whole pan, making sure to have them touching, but they do not have to overlap.
Then in a medium sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat.
Let it come to a boil and let it sit boiling for 3 minutes without stirring it.
After the 3 minutes is done, pour the brown sugar over top of the saltine crackers, making sure to cover each cracker.
Now place the jelly roll pan in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
Once the timer is up, remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chip across the whole pan.
Allow the chocolate chips to melt a bit, and then use a spatula to spread the chocolate out over top of the whole pan to create an even chocolate layer.
Before the chocolate cools, sprinkle the chopped nuts evenly on top of the chocolate.
Now just let the toffee and chocolate cool completely, either at room temperature or in the fridge to speed up the process a bit.
Then just break the toffee sheet into bite-sized pieces and you are ready to eat!
When you are done eating (if there is anything left) store it in an air tight container for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for about 2-3 months!
To Make This Christmas Treat Recipe You Will Need:

Have You Run Out of Brown Sugar?
It’s that time of the year when all of the baking supplies disappear no matter what store you go to. So, if you did not stock up early you might be out of luck if you run out of brown sugar.
However, did you know that you can make your own?! It’s actually quite simple! Kitchn has a wonderful blog about how to make brown sugar at home. So make sure you save it for when you’re in a pinch.

Saltine Cracker English Toffee Recipe
- 40 salted saltine crackers
- 1 cup butter 2 sticks
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped nuts (I used peanuts, you can use whatever kind you like)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a large jelly roll pan (mine was 15×10") 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).
- 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. After three minutes, pour the hot brown sugar mixture evenly over the saltine crackers.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the 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).
- Sprinkle chopped nuts 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.
- To store, keep in an air-tight container for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for a couple of months.
- 15x10x2 Sheet Pan
- Aluminum Foil
- Non-stick Cooking Spray
