I know you've heard of cracker toffee before, right?  There are loads of recipes floating around the web for this decadent chocolate dessert.  You'll find versions that are saltine cracker recipes or Christmas crack recipes, but it's basically all the same thing.  Cracker toffee features a buttery, sugary, crisp toffee layer topped with a smooth sweet chocolate layer.

It's almost unbelievable how ridiculously easy it is to make because it is so darn good.

I want to follow up that first part there with a little disclaimer that I actually hate the term 'crack' used in recipes.  There's this crack toffee and crack chicken that I'm sure you've seen before.  You know, the ranch, bacon, cheese, chicken concoction.  Both fabulously delicious, but I just don't love the way it sounds.  I just think it's...odd.  I'm weird, I know. I just had to get that out before moving on.

Onward!  The best thing about this recipe for me is the sweet salty thing that it has going on.  Adding crackers to the toffee layer is borderline genius.  As I mentioned before, some people like to use saltines, but I prefer Ritz crackers.  It really is a personal preference, so I suggest if you like one more than the other right out of the box, go with your favorite.  The key is that salt on the cracker paired with the sweet chocolate.

Speaking of chocolate, you'll see I used dark chocolate.  This can be swapped for semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips, but I think that the dark chocolate pairs best with the uber sweet toffee layer.  It will be delish no matter which you choose!

You can top everything off with some fun candy sprinkles to match any occasion.  Pastels for Easter or Valentine's Day, red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, or a handful of chopped nuts for any occasion!  Versatile and easy.  Love it.

Easy Ritz Cracker Toffee


This Easy Ritz Cracker Toffee recipe is sweet, salty, chocolaty, buttery and completely irresistible. It's a great chocolate dessert for any holiday and it makes the perfect foodie gift!

prep time: cook time: total time: 43 MIN

INGREDIENTS


40 Ritz crackers
1 cup butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 (11.5 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 15x10 inch pan with parchment paper or foil. If using foil, spray with cooking spray. Arrange the crackers in single layer in the pan.

2. In a medium saucepan, cook and stir the butter, dark brown sugar, sugar, and salt over medium heat until the butter is melted. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Boil for 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla; stir until blended. Immediately pour mixture evenly over crackers in pan.  (Move quickly because once you pour it on, it will not spread!  It sets very fast!)

3. Bake for 12 minutes or until bubbly and brown in color. (Do not overbake!  If the edges start looking burned, it will taste burned!) Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of cracker mixture. Return to the oven for 1 minute. Spread the chocolate chips evenly over the cracker mixture. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice. Cool completely on the counter (or 30 minutes in the freezer) until chocolate is set. Break into pieces. Store covered in refrigerator up to 1 week.
