Christmas crack

Introducing the annual delight that has become a staple in our holiday celebrations – “Christmas Crack”! This treat is not only super cheap and easy to make but also unbelievably addicting. Once you start, it’s hard to resist the perfect blend of sweet, salty, and chocolaty goodness. Brace yourself for a deliciously indulgent experience that will have everyone reaching for more.


  • Saltine crackers (preferably salted)
  • 2 sticks of butter (1 cup)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips (milk chocolate works well)


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. Prepare Saltines:
    • Arrange a single layer of saltine crackers on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil.
  3. Make Toffee Mixture:
    • Melt the butter over medium-high heat and add the packed brown sugar. Allow the mixture to boil for exactly 3 minutes. Be precise with the timing to achieve the perfect toffee consistency.
  4. Pour and Bake:
    • Pour the toffee mixture over the saltines, ensuring an even coating. Bake in the preheated oven for 3-5 minutes or until the toffee starts to bubble.
  5. Add Chocolate:
    • As soon as you take the baking sheet out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the toffee-covered saltines. The heat will melt the chocolate; use a spatula to spread it evenly.
  6. Customize and Set:
    • This is the fun part! Top your Christmas Crack with whatever you desire – chopped nuts, festive sprinkles, or even a pinch of sea salt. Get creative! For a quicker chocolate melting process, you can pop it back into the oven for a minute.
  7. Chill and Enjoy:
    • Allow the Christmas Crack to harden in the fridge. Once set, break it into deliciously irregular pieces. Store in the refrigerator and be warned – it’s hard to resist eating the entire batch in one sitting!

This addictive holiday treat is not just a snack; it’s a festive experience that adds a touch of sweet magic to your celebrations. Share the joy and savor every irresistible bite of this Christmas Crack with friends and family. Enjoy responsibly, and happy holidays!
