Maybe this recipe will help me win back a few “cool Mom” points. For me, it is about as close to perfection as a candy can get. Crunchy, salty, sweet, chocolate and nutty. Now if you will excuse me, I need soak my teenager frustrations in candy and add a few more pounds to my pregnancy weight gain….
Saltine Toffee Candy
This toffee candy uses saltine crackers as it’s base which makes them perfectly crispy, plus the best sweet and salty combination!
Line large jelly roll pan with silpat liner or nonstick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with a single layer of crackers. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium sauce pan, bring the butter and sugar to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Stir well then pour evenly over the saltines. Spread it as best as you can. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and be sure each cracker has the toffee mixture over top if it.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly over the candy then sprinkle with nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.

If it was not 12:30 AM right now I would so be making these. I better get to sleep so I can make these later! Thanks
I found these two nights ago, and it reminded me of when I first tried these tasty goodies. Someone had brought them to work, and I couldn’t believe they were saltines. I am now impatiently waiting until my batch cools completely! Thanks!
