Different versions of these saltine toffee cookies AKA Christmas crack were floating around the web at the start of the holidays but I was not intrigued enough to give them a swing. It was not until yesterday when G brought home a few chunks from the batch his mom made to give away as gifts that I realized what I’ve been missing. Oh My G! The couple of pieces I awakened such a mad craving I was in the kitchen in a nanosecond making my own. This crack has just become my official addiction of choice.
- 1 sleeve (4 ounces) saltine crackers
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange saltine crackers in a single layer on cookie sheet.
- In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil. Continue to boil for about 3 to 5 minutes or until foamy. Pour over layer of saltines, spreading to coat.
- In a 400 F oven, bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate over toffee. Let stand for 5 minutes or until chocolate are melted and spread to coat surface. Sprinkle with walnuts.
- Refrigerate until completely cooled and hardened. Cut with a knife or break with hands into pieces.
