These Delicious Toffee Cracker Cookies Have Many Names

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 as gifts.

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

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