Ritz cracker toffee is salty and sweet and so simple to make. Melted butter and brown sugar are made into a sticky toffee that is poured over ritz crackers then topped with melted chocolate chips. A must make holiday treat!
Ritz Cracker Toffee is salty, sweet, and so addictive! This and ritz cracker cookies are two of our favorite holiday salty sweet treats.
All you need are ritz crackers, butter, brown sugar, and chocolate chips.
How to make ritz cracker toffee
Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place around 50 ritz crackers in a single layer on the cookie sheet.
Step 2: In a medium saucepan on the stove, melt butter and brown sugar and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, stir constantly for 2 – 3 minutes, until thick.
There is no need for a candy thermometer for this recipe.
Step 3: Pour toffee mixture over the ritz crackers, and use a rubber spoon or spatula to spread it out evenly.
Step 4: Bake for a few minutes, until bubbly.
Step 5: Sprinkle chocolate chips (semi sweet) over the top of the toffee covered ritz crackers.
Allow the chocolate chips to set for a few minutes to melt, then use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate out evenly.
Step 6: Place the ritz toffee in the fridge or freezer for an hour or two, until hardened.
Use your hands to break into pieces.
Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight ziploc bag for best texture.
