This Christmas Toffee Bark is so easy to make and is also widely known as Christmas Crack for a reason. It’s the perfect addition to your Baking Exchange or a fun sweet treat for your Christmas Party. Make a batch with the kids and share with family and friends or keep it all to yourself. Best of all, it is super easy to make!
You can make this Christmas Toffee super festive with your favorite festive sprinkles! It will be your new favorite treat to bring to a holiday get together and it will not disappoint. It is a deliciouse homeade toffee covered in delicious chocolate, then topped with fun sprinkles for the holiday.
This is one easy recipe to whip up and it will not have you in the kitchen all day baking and icing cookies (if that is not your thing). Everyone goes crazy for this stuff and we have so much fun making it every year.
We go all out in the baking department this time of year, I can’t help it, it’s like an extra excuse to be in the kitchen. But isn’t there just something about Holiday Baking and all the fall and winter flavors, I just love this time of year.
I have always loved to spend time in the kitchen so the holidays are no exception. If anything I spend WAY more time in the kitchen because of the holidays.
Baking has definitely become one of Harper and my favorite things to do in the kitchen, besides dance. Nicolas just wants to see what is going on but I can’t wait for him to help too one day (update: Nic LOVES helping us bake).
Harper loves helping me in the kitchen and is even pretty good at cracking eggs now. She’s always asking “what are we making today” and it gets me excited to come up with new fun recipes for us to try.
I love this Toffee recipe for it’s simplicity and the fact that Harper can help from start to finish. Her favorite part of course, is adding all the sprinkles on top. You can go all out or keep it simple, totally up to you.
To make this “Christmas Toffee Bark” you just add some fun and festive sprinkles. I even jazzed it up this year and drizzled some red and green on the top. I am happy to say that I LOVE the way it turned out, very festive.
This recipe is pretty much the exact same as my Homemade Halloween Toffee just jazzed up for Christmas. You can make this recipe any time of year really, and it is just as good if you do not want to add sprinkles or any fancy toppings.
Christmas Toffee Candy Bark aka Christmas Crack
First, preheat your oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place crackers all along baking sheet. In a medium size saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium high heat. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil for 3 minutes but keep stirring!
Pour toffee mixture over crackers. You can use a spatula to smooth toffee mixture and cover all of the crackers. You do not have to get to close to the edges because as it cooks in the oven it will spread out more and bubble up.
Bake for 5-7 minutes (in my oven about 6 minutes is good). Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes. Pour chocolate chips all over the toffee and spread out with a spatula until smooth.
If you need to, pop the whole pan back into the oven for just a few seconds if the chocolate chips need help melting. This will help spread the chocolate chips out better if they do not start to melt and spread easily.
But be sure to watch it, you do not to leave it in too long because the toffee will start to get hot again and mix with the chocolate when you start to spread it.
I melted some red and green melting candies, then drizzled it all over the top. I scooped a spoon full of the melted candy and moved the spoon back and forth quickly until I thought there was enough. Then Harper went to sprinkle town and added Christmas colored sprinkles.
Once you are done with sprinkles set the baking sheet in the fridge and cool for a few hours. Remove from fridge and snap into pieces of all sizes. You can store toffee candy pieces in the fridge for about one week.
