Ingredients to Make Christmas Crack

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 40 to 50 saltine crackers
  • 2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (I do half and half)
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions to Make Christmas Crack

  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (175°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil, ensuring it covers the entire surface.
  2. Layer the Saltine Crackers: Arrange the saltine crackers in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they fit snugly together.
  3. Prepare the Toffee Mixture: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar together, stirring continuously until the mixture reaches a smooth and caramel-like consistency. When it reaches a boil, let it boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Evenly Coat the Crackers: Pour the toffee mixture over the crackers, ensuring an even coating. Use a spatula to spread the toffee, covering each cracker thoroughly.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 7 minutes. The toffee will become bubbly and golden brown.
  6. Melt the Chocolate: Once the toffee-covered crackers are out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the hot surface. Allow the heat to melt the chocolate for a few minutes.
  7. Spread the Chocolate: Use a spatula or long knife to spread the melted chocolate evenly across the toffee-coated crackers, creating a luscious chocolate layer.
  8. Add the Finishing Touch: While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle sea salt over the top, adding that perfect touch of savory goodness.
  9. Chill and Break Into Pieces: Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least two hours or until the chocolate has set completely. Once set, break the Christmas Crack into bite-sized pieces.
