Homemade “Christmas Crack” Toffee
Want an EASY Christmas treat?
The holidays are approaching! Soon it’ll be time to make all the yummy holiday treats – including ADDICTING cracker toffee (affectionately known as “Christmas Crack”)! It’s a rich and buttery treat to make during Christmas, and it also happens to be super simple to create at home. Serve this at holiday parties, or make this as a fun treat to share as homemade gifts.
There are so many versions of Christmas Crack!
I have shared my grandma’s Almond Roca recipe in THIS previous post, and that’s what I usually make. You can change up the add-ins to include crushed candy canes, pretzels, mini marshmallows, or white chocolate chips. The options are endless!
Let’s make festive Christmas Crack with M&M’s!
Today I’m sharing a similar version to the Almond Roca I usually make, but I’ll be using festive Christmas M&M’s instead of nuts. You can either use saltine crackers or graham crackers (today I’m team graham cracker)! This idea is so easy, and you can make several batches with different nut or candy combinations to fit your cravings.
Hip Tip: To avoid sticking, I used a 16×12 sheet pan covered in foil and sprayed with non-stick spray.
Easy process and easy ingredients!
This method starts by covering the bottom of a baking sheet with crackers and then boiling lots of butter and brown sugar. That bubbly mixture gets spread over the crackers, baked for 5 minutes, and then topped with chocolate chips. The chips will then melt and spread nicely over the toffee. The M&Ms get sprinkled on top.
When it sets up, you’ll break apart the “Christmas Crack” into pieces to serve. YUMMY!
