This recipe for Toffee Crack Candy, by , is from Mrs. Matthew's Class Cookbook Project, one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.



1 sleeve of saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or almond)
1 whole bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans are good)
sea salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°

Line a cookie sheet (with sides) with foil or parchment and lay saltine crackers salt side up. Set aside.

Melt together butter and brown sugar by bringing to a boil over medium high heat. Once mixture starts to boil....stir constantly for 3 minutes. It will really fluff up. Don't burn! Remove from heat.

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract, stir and then pour over saltines

Cook in preheated oven for 7 minutes (mixture will bubble.)

Remove from oven (at this point I attempt to push the crackers back together but work quickly so it doesn’t cool too much) and sprinkle a bag of chocolate chips and let rest on crackers 3-5 minutes

Chips will soften and you can spread them over the crackers in the pan evenly

Sprinkle your favorite nuts and sea salt if desired on top and chill in fridge 2 hours or until hardened

Pull out and break into desired pieces and place on platter to serve
