Delightfully Tacky Toffee -TRGL

Delightfully Tacky Toffee

I got this recipe from a friend at college, but I’m guessing you may have a grandma or aunt who brought this to every family gathering. And good on her for doing so because this stuff is pure perfection – salty, sweet, crunchy and melty. I dare you to not eat the whole pan!

Delightfully Tacky Toffee

This kitshy quick candy comes together with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

  • saltine crackers about 1 sleeve
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Line up crackers in a single layer on the foil.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter and brown sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil 3 minutes or until thickened. Immediately pour over crackers and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and turn oven off. Sprinkle chocolate chips over crackers and chips will start to melt, 2-5 minutes. Spread chips using a clean spatula. Pop back in the oven for 30 seconds to a minute if the chips don't spread easily.
  4. Let cool to room temperature, then put in fridge for at least an hour. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


- Substitute graham crackers for the saltine crackers for a sweeter version

-If you have a fancy sea salt or Himalayan salt, use that, but don’t buy it just for this recipe.

-A cup of chopped nuts sprinkled over the warm melted chocolate is a great addition!

-The candy will be fine on the counter, but I prefer to keep it in the fridge.
