Ten Minute Toffee

Updated on September 8, 2014

This recipe is one of my all-time favorite treats, and I must warn you, it is unbelievably addictive. Luckily, it is also extremely easy and you'll have everything done and cleaned up in about 15 minutes.You can make this recipe year-round, but it also makes a great addition to any collection of holiday cookies. To make it extra special, you can also add a seasonal topping to it like sprinkles, nuts, or candy.


1 1/2 sleeves of saltine crackers

1 cup of unsalted butter

1 cup of brown sugar

1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Step 1: Lay Out the Saltines

To start your recipe, take a standard cookie sheet (one that has low sides to it) and cover it with foil. You will then want to line the whole sheet with saltines lying flat down next to each other. If the saltines do not fit nicely, then you may want to break some in half to fill the sheet.

Step 2: The Butter and Sugar

Next, you will boil the butter and sugar together on the stove. It will not take very long and you will want to stir as the mixture begins to boil. The sugar and butter will start to boil and become much thicker. Then you are ready for the next step!

Step 3: The Toffee Layer

Once your mixture is the proper consistency, you will need to immediately pour it over the saltines. It may be best to use a spatula to make sure you spread the toffee mixture as evenly as possible. After it is spread, put it in the oven for 7 minutes at 350 degrees. This will spread the mixture evenly and heat it up even more.

Step 4: The Chocolate

Right after you take the toffee and saltines out of the oven, you will want to immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over them. Wait for about 3 minutes until the chocolate chips have softened and then gently spread them over the saltines using a spatula. You should not have to reheat anything for the chocolate to melt, the toffee will be hot enough to do this. Once the chocolate has been evenly spread, put the toffee in the freezer for a few hours to completely harden.

The Grand Finale

After the toffee has been in the freezer for a few hours, you are ready to break it up and serve! Make sure that the foil is properly peeled off first - you don't want any of that left on the toffee to accidentally get eaten. :)
