HALLOWEEN CRACK is just saltine cracker toffee all dressed up for Halloween. This homemade toffee is easy to make and so fun to munch on.
Ahh, the most magical time of the year…Halloween.
Okay, I know Christmas is usually the magical holiday, but the minute Target busts out their Halloween decor, I’m like a kid in a candy shop.
I adore Halloween! It’s so fun and spooky and, also, did I mention the candy?
I love candy. Maybe not a popular thing to admit as a grown woman, but I can’t help myself. Pass the Reese’s Pumpkins and no one gets hurt. 😉
This saltine cracker toffee is a favorite of ours, but we usually only make it at Christmas. So glad I decided to get creepy with this one!
How to make saltine cracker toffee:
Toffee sounds like a tricky candy to make, but this recipe is darn easy!
You’ll want to lay saltine crackers all along a baking sheet in an even layer before starting on the toffee.
To make the toffee, add sugar, butter, and peanut butter to a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes – no need to use a candy thermometer – just do a full boil for 3 minutes.
Carefully pull the toffee mixture over the crackers and pop the pan in the oven.
Please be careful with the toffee mixture – boiling sugar is so darn hot and can really burn you if you’re not careful.
After the toffee has baked for 5 minutes, sprinkle the pan with chocolate chips and pop it back in the oven to melt for 1 more minute.
Smooth out the melty chocolate and then place some eye ball sprinkles all around. I also sprinkled on a mix of Halloween sprinkles. Super simple and festive!
You’ll want to let this cool on the counter for 20 minutes or so before transferring to the freezer for an hour.
This toffee breaks apart easily into small pieces.
This is just about impossible to stop munching on, so proceed with caution. 😉
How to store cracker toffee:
We store this toffee in an air-tight container for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
It tastes just as good cold as it does at room temp.
