Nothing says holidays more than this Christmas crack toffee recipe. It’s something you will want to make and bring to your next party or cookie exchange. Check out the recipe below!
I was headed to a fun ‘dessert favorites’ party with neighbor friends and wanted to bring something different this year. My usual favorites like peppermint fudge and peanut butter cups are always a good classic but I wanted to make something new. I came across a similar crack cracker recipe and decided to go for it!
This Christmas crack toffee is given its name because they say it so good you will not want to stop eating it. Which can also be bad, right? So it’s perfect for a party! It’s also not hard to make and it was fun to make with my 12 year old.
Christmas Crack Toffee
What you Need:
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1 3/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 bag of holiday M&M’s
- graham crackers
- peppermints (broken up) optional
- holiday sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay as many graham crackers on baking sheet as you can. Optional: if you don’t like graham crackers you can also use saltine crackers!
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar. Bring it to a boil stirring constantly and keep cooking for about 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn! Quickly pour mixture over the crackers as evenly as possible and smooth over. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Immediately top with chocolate chips and smooth with a spatula as it’s melting. Quickly top with M&M’s, peppermint pieces, and sprinkles. Cut into squares. Small sizes work great as this treat is very rich! Keep on the sheet and let it harden for a while in the fridge.
Store in an airtight container.
