Christmas Crack

Somehow I found this recipe on Averie’s Website



The pictures had my mouth watering and I had leftover saltines from being sick last week.  I was warned that this toffee was as addictive as crack and after making my own, I must agree!  Hence the name…Christmas Crack.

From the start, it sounded simple enough.  Layer crackers…



Make toffee on the stove (quite the arm workout, but totally worth it!)



Layer toffee on crackers…



Followed by chocolate chips.



I ended up putting the pan back in the oven for 1-2 minutes before spreading the chocolate.



Into the freezer goes the pan (where it is truly best to forget about it) before breaking the toffee into pieces.



Chocolate Saltine Toffee is so crazy good and addictive that the name Christmas Crack fits perfectly.  And so far…nobody has disagreed!




You can find Averie’s recipe HERE or just hope that I am coming to your house today and bringing some with me.

     Ps I am definitely nibbling on some while writing this post!

     Pps This recipe also works with graham crackers, gluten free crackers, or matzah…Passover just got a whole lot tastier!


While I was on Averie’s website, I also come across this White Chocolate Puppy Chow. I happened to be looking for a gluten free Christmas recipe and this one caught my eye.



I’m not usually a huge fan of white chocolate, but I do love me some Puppy Chow.  I haven’t made it in years and found this similar recipe lots of fun!





And really yummy!  I followed the recipe but only needed 2 1/2 cup of powdered sugar (I used 6 cups Chex mix) and added in a few peanut butter chips because I had them in the house.





Call it Reindeer food or White Chocolate Puppy Chow or whatever you want…either way… you will call it GOOD!


Have a special day surrounded by family and friends!

Merry Everything!

Happy Always!

  1. Oh wow, you made two recipes of mine in one post…I am honored!

    The saltine toffee is so crack-like…glad everyone agrees!

    And the white choc puppy chow…I probably used more sugar than you did because my pieces were *extra* thickly layer with sugar :) and also being in the heat in Aruba where I made it, the humid airs just soaks up more sugar. That’s my logic anyway.

    Thanks for making these and blogging about them and linking back :)

    • Your are welcome! Thanks for checking them out.

      Both recipes turned out fabulous! They were fun to make and everyone enjoyed them today. I luv to try out new recipes, especially the sweets and treats. Will be making them again REAL soon!
