A few years ago, I came across  this recipe from A Southern Grace  , and it puzzled me.

Crackers? Chocolate? Toffee? 🤔

But, the simplicity of the recipe drew me in and I gave them a whirl. That was an incredibly good idea on my part.

Guys, this stuff is amazing. If you haven’t given it a try, please do so this holiday season. It’s not only a great dessert option, but, makes a fun homemade gift too.


  • Crackers:
  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter:
  • Brown sugar
  • Vanilla + Salt


  • I have used both Ritz crackers and saltines for this toffee. Both worked like a charm.


  • Real butter, not margarine!

Recipe Notes


  • I tossed a few sprinkles on ours, but, feel free to decorate as you wish. Chopped nuts are a great option. Just be sure to add the toppings before your melted chocolate sets.


  • Store leftovers in a sealed container or storage bag in refrigerator. It can also be kept in the freezer for long term storage.
