How to make halloween saltine toffee

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line the saltines up in rows.

Step 2: Melt the butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil 2-3 minutes stirring constantly, until thick.

Step 3: Pour the butter/brown sugar mixture over the saltines and spread with a rubber spatula. Bake at 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes, until browned and bubbly.

Step 4: Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Let the chocolate chips sit for 5 minutes, then spread with a rubber spatula evenly across the saltines

Step 5: Top the halloween crack with anything you want! We used eye candies, halloween themed sprinkles, reese’s pieces, and candy corns.

  1. I just made these for a Fall Harvest potluck for work. I used cinnamon graham crackers for the bottom. They came out amazing! Thanks for a great recipe!!

  2. Made it with speciality Halloween sprinkles that had bats, eyes, mummies, hands, large glitter sugar, sprinkles – super colorful. Can’t wait to eat and share.

    1. I prefer the texture in the fridge or freezer, but you can also store it in an airtight container for a few days.

  3. I messed up and put the chocolate chips on before baking it in the oven, not sure whats going to happen

  4. You picture 2 half sticks of butter but it says 1 cup in the recipe, which is 4 half sticks. Can you clarify?
