Christmas Crack is a delicious, sweet, salty and caramel-y candy that has become one of the most popular holiday snacks. It’s easy to make, a crowd pleaser and perfect for cookie trays, gift giving or snack tables.

This recipe calls for butter and brown sugar to make a thick, chewy toffee that is the ultimate salty-sweet-caramel snack. It doesn’t require a candy thermometer and can be easily topped with chocolate, nuts, M&Ms or sprinkles.
The butter and sugar mixture is simmered for a few minutes to emulsify the butter into the brown sugar. Then it’s poured over saltine crackers and baked for about 15 minutes.
After baking, the toffee should be thick and glossy, and it should set up like a stiff hardened layer on top of the crackers. If not, return it to the oven and cook for a few more minutes until a solid, thick layer has formed.
If you want to add a topping, just melt some white chocolate in a bowl over the pan of toffee and spread it over the crackers. You can also add other types of toppings such as chopped nuts, M&Ms, pretzels or sprinkles.
Topping it off with a layer of smooth and silky chocolate ganache is what makes this recipe truly special! It’s so easy to make and tastes even better than store-bought.
I recommend using bittersweet chocolate chips for this recipe because the flavor is so good, but you can use milk or dark chocolate if that’s what you have on hand. Or, if you’re feeling particularly creative, you can mix and match different flavors of chocolate to create a unique and delicious holiday treat!
