  • 1 sleeve saltine cracker about 35-40 crackers
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Line a 10x15 inch pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease.
  • Place the saltine crackers on the cookie sheet to cover the entire pan in 1 layer of crackers. 
  • Melt together the butter and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Once the butter is melted, bring it to a boil for 3 minutes while stirring constantly.
  • Carefully pour the mixture over the crackers. Spread it overtop so that all of the crackers are covered.
  • Bake in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add the chocolate to a medium heatproof bowl. Microwave on medium power for 1-minute bursts, stirring between each. When the chocolate is almost melted, stir until smooth. 
  • Spoon the chocolate over the crackers, and spread it smooth to completely cover the pan. Decorate with sprinkles. 
  • Let the toffee harden until the chocolate is set. Either at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • Once completely hardened, remove from the pan and peel the aluminum foil off. Break/"crack" it into pieces.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the fridge for 10 days.
