Traditional saltine crackers are layered in a yummy homemade toffee and then covered in delicious melted chocolate. It is the perfect balance of sweet and salty in every single bite, making you want more and more!
I found this yummy recipe a few years ago around Christmas time. I added it to our list of treats we made for our family Christmas cookie exchange. I am sure you have heard of Christmas Crack, Crack Candy, Homemade Toffee, Toffee Crack – at least one of those.
This is just that. This Halloween Toffee recipe is so simple to make and it is very addicting to eat. You can actually make this recipe for any Holiday. Just add your favorite seasonal sprinkles to the top and you have a treat for any Holiday occasion.
I also made a “fall” version of this recipe using graham crackers instead of saltine crackers. It turned out pretty yummy, just not as salty since you are using graham crackers. It is definitely worth a try, you can find the recipe here if you want to give it a try.
If you feel like going the extra mile with your decorating skills, try using melting candies and drizzle orange, green and/or purple across the chocolate before adding sprinkles (um I think I just might). I had a lot of fun making our Christmas Bark this way and it turned out really festive looking.
You should be able to find seasonal sprinkles on Amazon, or at any local grocery store. I find a lot of mine at Homegoods, they always have the cutest finds for Holiday food!
We love making this Homemade Toffee for ALL the holidays. My husband’s coworkers get excited this time of year and are already requesting some for him to bring into work.
The kids love helping with this recipe. If you have older kids they can help with stirring the sugar and butter. Otherwise you can definitely get some sprinkle helpers. If there is one thing my kids love to help with, it’s any kind of sprinkle-ing.
We hope you enjoy making and sharing this recipe as much as we do. If you make this recipe don’t forget to use #moerecipes so I can see your awesome Halloween Toffee Candy!

- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter 2 sticks of REAL butter not oil based butter
- 1 1/2 sleeve saltines crackers or however many to line your baking sheet
- Your favorite Halloween Sprinkles
- 1 bag Chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray.
Place crackers next to one another and line the entire baking sheet until you have no more room.
In a medium size saucepan melt butter and brown sugar over high heat. Stirring constantly, bringing to a boil for 3 minutes.
Pour mixture all over crackers. Use a spatula to smooth out melted toffee until it covers crackers.
Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes.
Pour chocolate chips all over toffee and spread out with a spatula until smooth (see tips if have trouble with this step). Then top with sprinkles.
Cool in refrigerator for 2 hours or until chocolate and toffee have hardened completely.
Remove from fridge and snap into pieces of all sizes. Store candy pieces in fridge and set out right before serving. Keep leftovers (if there are any) in the fridge. Enjoy.
Tip: After sprinkling chocolate chips over toffee you can pop back into the hot oven for a few seconds to help melt the chocolate chips for easier spreading but be careful, if left in for to long it will reheat toffee causing it to mix with the chocolate.
