Nut-Free Cookies ~ Easy Heath English Toffee Cracker Bars Recipe

Updated on November 24, 2016

Are you ready for my Favorite Family Cookie recipe?

Sweet, crispy, slightly salty, and covered in rich chocolate, these treats are my favorite cookies to eat or to give.

These are also a favorite by both my daughters, too. I'm just waiting for their kids to make their requests. :D These brickle-type bars always make my Christmas Cookie list, too.

I've also highlighted a couple of my favorite pans and why I highly recommend them.

A special thanks to my sister who introduced us to these delectable morsels, and is kind enough to always share her recipes.

Toffe Bar Cookies (also known as Christmas Crack)

This is one of my favorite sweets that combines the sweetness of the toffee and rich chocolate with a complimentary salty flavor and flaky texture from the surprise addition of the Saltine crackers.


  • 1 cup butter (no substitutions)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • soda crackers (saltines)
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips


  1. Coat baking sheet with margarine.
  2. Lay crackers on bottom, side to side.
  3. In saucepan, bring butter and brown sugar to hard boil, stirring continually, for 3 minutes.
  4. Spread over crackers and bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Spread to cover.
  6. Cool completely., then freeze until solid.
  7. Crack or cut into small pieces with knife.
  8. Return to freezer until ready to serve.
  9. YUM!
  10. (The original recipe calls for 3/4 cup chopped almonds to be spread over brown sugar topping, but I've never used them. :D)
