Cracker Toffee

Ladies, have you ever had these? They won’t win the award for “most beautiful presentation”, but WOWSA are these EVER GOOD!!!  I made them the other day for a ladies bible study and my son asked “Ma, what on earth are you making!” I told him “Cracker Toffee- want to try some?!” He held a small piece with his hand and with a scrunched up nose and eyes tightly shut he hesitantly opened his mouth and took a bite. He opened his eyes- stared straight at me with the most serious look I have ever seen on an 8 year old and said with a monotone voice “I think that is the most delicious thing I have ever tasted.” We rolled! But, he may be right…sweet, savory, buttery, and salty all in one bite…I don’t know what can top that. Oh -and it’s easy. You know I like easy.

Place parchment paper out on a 15×10 inch cookie sheet. Lay crackers side to side like so.

Melt butter, brown sugar, vanilla and Karo syrup on medium high heat in a medium sized saucepan.

Bring to a boil, stir and cook for 2 mins. Stir in pecans.

Pour sauce over crackers

Spread it as evenly as you can…the mixture will even leak to the bottom.

Bake at 350 for appx 10 -12 mins until the top appears “dry”. Cool until almost completely firm but flexible enough to tear into pieces.

I had to take this photo…don’t you just want to try a bite? Honestly- I could eat the entire pan of this stuff…it is that good. I could cry just typing up this blog post! haha.

Enjoy, sweet friends.

  1. That sounds so yummy….when I read “cracker” toffee, my first thought was “cracker” as in a southern “Florida cracker”…guess you can guess where I live :o)

    • Oh that’s funny Nikki!! I just had to look at wikipedia to see what a southern florida cracker was! ha!!! I get a big kick out of word meanings in different states…here we call soda “pop” and deli ham “Chip Chop”, too funny.

  2. Why are you doing this to me? I just want to reach into the screen and taste one. Wishing you a delicious holiday.

  3. I’ve never tried these before but it’s a great idea to put the toffee on crackers! I wonder if that makes it easier to break apart and handle?

    I’m having a holiday link-up at my blog and would love for you to join! I love participating in your weekly fellowship link-ups so I thought you might like to join in mine! :-) As many holiday recipes/treats/decor ideas as you’d like!

    Thanks for the recipe idea! Merry Christmas!! :-)

  4. these look very good. I make something similar….everything the same expect no pecans, once you pour the toffee mixture over the crackers, sprinkle w/ 2 cups of chocolate chips and bake 5 minutes, then using a rubber spatula smoothe chocolate over crackers and refrigerate until chocolate hardens, break apart….delicious…..I think the pecans and chocolate would be a yummy combination!

  5. This looks wonderful and it is so easy to do! I am new to your blog so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I’m so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  6. Your “cracker toffee” looks so yummy! I am going to make some for Christmas…which is just around the corner. I better get started now! My traditional is “peanut brittle” but I am happy to add a new addition which is your toffee. Can’t wait to try some. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family!

  7. Club Crackers taste good all by itself, I could not even imagine what it tastes like it with buttery toffee on it.

  8. Love these. I’m your newest follower!

  9. Do you think I could use honey instead of corn syrup in this? I have everything on hand except the corn syrup and that’s something I rarely use, but I always have tons of honey in the house.

    • Erin, I would not recommend honey..I’m sorry! I do not feel as though it will caramelize quite like the corn syrup intends. You may certainly try it, it could turn out to be something different- but good!

  10. Looks delicious! I’m going to add that to my list of goodies to make this year! Thanks for sharing!

  11. A woman where I used to work made these for every “party” we had…..and they ARE absolutely delicious!! I never did get the recipe for them, so thank you so much for posting this!!

  12. You said to use a box of crackers but didn’t you mean one sleeve of crackers from the box? They’re are over 40 crackers in one sleeve. Or, does the sauce mixture cover more than one pan?

  13. I love these!!!!

    how long will these cookies last if stored in a airtight container?

  15. I have made this before using Graham Wafer Squares instead of crackers (But I’m definitely going to try the crackers!). Did the recipe the same except for adding the pecans. I did that just before I putting the gooey crackers in the oven. AFTER taking it out of the oven, I sprinkled a package of milk chocolate chocolate chips over it and gave it a second to melt THEN with a fork spread the chocolate. Let it cool complete and break. It is yummy too! Give both a try for a little different treat!
