Are you ready to get your holiday bake on?
I originally got the recipe for this treat from my neighbor Cristina (Hiiiii Cristina! 👋). She brought some over to us a few months ago and I was immediately hooked.
It honestly is the perfect combination of sweet, salty, caramel-y, chocolatey, crunchy amazingness.
I asked her if it was easy to make and she said it’s literally the easiest candy recipe ever.
And you guys, this is actually the easiest candy recipe.
All you do is combine butter and brown sugar into a large saucepan.
Let it boil for a couple minutes, then pour it over saltine crackers.
Bake the crackers in the oven for 5 minutes, top with dark chocolate chips, spread melted chips, top with toffee bits and white chocolate, and let harden in the fridge or freezer.
Crack into pieces and
Like, seriously, try to stop yourself at just one piece.
It’s nearly impossible.
I’m sure you guys have seen or even made Christmas Crack before, but THIS recipe is the best, because I use one whole sleeve of saltines, TWO whole sticks of butter, and one whole package of dark chocolate chips. Meaning, there’s hardly any measuring to do at all!
Easy. Addicting. Perfection.
Make this Christmas Crack for yourself, or make it to give out for holiday gifts.
And if you do… could you send a little more my way?
