I have been making Easy Christmas Saltine Toffee Recipe for years. Also know as Valentine’s Day Crack, lol. My sister originally introduced it to me and the other day I thought why should this amazing toffee only be made once a year so we adapted this Valentines Day Toffee Recipe.
Yes, I understand that you crave something more the less you have it. My solution for this is that I would make the saltine toffee base the same but mix things up with the chocolate toppings.
Instead of semi-sweet and butterscotch chips, I would use white and red chips. Either way we call this dessert crack because you can not eat just one.
I had fun making this for Valentine’s Day and already starting to think what I can make for St. Patrick’s day and Easter. Perhaps I will make the pretzel toffee recipe I have made a few years ago to mix things up. Either way, hope you enjoy this recipe and get creative with your easy toffee recipe.
Valentine’s Day Toffee Recipe
This is such an easy toffee recipe that does not require a candy thermometer like regular toffee recipe. You only need a few ingredients and a little imagination.
Ok, maybe not imagination just willing to experiment with flavor combinations. Start by layering a sheet pan with saltine crackers. I have tried whole wheat and unsalted, you need to go with the traditional saltine crackers.
Do I need a candy Thermometer to make saltine toffee?
No Just Melt butter and sugar until bubbly. Don’t walk away, you don’t want to burn this or you will have to start over. This is Christmas crack converted for Valentines Day.
Pour the melted butter/brown sugar mixture evenly over the crackers and bake for 5 minutes.
WHAT TYPE OF CHOCOLATE SHOULD I USE FOR VALENTINES DAY CRACK CANDY?
We used white chocolate morsels for this recipe. You can try using colored chocolate discs as well as the white chocolate ones melted better for me.
Sprinkle your chocolate morsels over the hot crackers and place back in the oven for 2 minutes. (The white chips I used did not melt very well. I went back and added white chocolate discs)
How to Make Pink Chocolate
Add a few red chips/chocolate discss and spread the mixture to get a marble effect. You can also use pink chocolate melting discs.
Top with festive sprinkles if you desire and allow the saltine bark to set completely.
Either break or cut the easy saltine toffee recipe into serving sizes.
This was an easy dessert that I am sure will be a keeper in your home.
Bet you can’t eat just one of these sweet saltine toffee pieces.
