Holiday Peanut Butter Toffee

This is a fun holiday toffee recipe. Did you know you can make toffee out of saltine crackers? I was definitely skeptical but decided to give it a try. I've seen several different recipes using saltine crackers. The recipe I tried is the peanut butter variation. If you are looking for a more traditional toffee, then try this recipe.

To make this easy toffee recipe you will need:

  • 1 "sleeve" saltine crackers
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. butter
  • 2 1/2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1/3 c. peanut butter
  • Red and green M&M's

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Arrange a layer of saltine crackers on the parchment paper, completely covering the bottom of the cookie sheet with crackers.

In a sauce pan, bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes. Do not stir while the mixture is boiling.

Pour the butter and sugar mixture over the crackers and place the pan in the oven for 5 minutes.

Place the peanut butter on top of the crackers in several spoonfuls and place the pan in the oven for a minute to soften the peanut butter. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the crackers.

Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and place the pan in the oven for another minute. Use a spatula to spread melted chocolate chips out over peanut butter.

Chop M&M's into small pieces and sprinkle on top of melted chocolate chips. Place pan in freezer for about an hour to get chocolate to set. Break candy into bite sized pieces.

I made this for a family holiday get together and it was a big hit. No one knows there is saltine crackers in it! It is really good and very easy to make.
