English Toffee

Southern style, my English friend Jan laughed at the name of this.  But she loved the recipe 🙂

English Toffee

2 sticks real butter

1 cup sugar

1 sleeve of saltine crackers

12 oz. milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  Place crackers on cookie sheet, flat, one layer.  Melt butter, add sugar and boil for 3 minutes.  Pour mixture over crackers.  Bake 15 minutes or until they are a toffee color.  Remove from oven, pour chocolate chips over crackers wait 1-2 minutes and use a spatula to spread evenly over toffee.  Sprinkle with crushed pecans, while still warm…this is optional.  Place in freezer for 1/2 hour.  Break in pieces and enjoy.

  1. Oh! I made this over the weekend! (Although mine has crushed Heath bars on top instead of the pecans.) It is delicious….sweet, yet delicious.

  2. So do they not have toffee in England. You need to re-name it then, Debbie’s Toffee! Merry Christmas.

  3. I love toffee and that recipe is easy enough for me to make. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  4. Yum that is all I can say. It looks amazing.

  5. Yum! This is one of my favorite holiday treats SAVORY!!!

  6. I would call it “Southern Toffee” but it does sound interesting with the saltines.

  7. Thanks for the inspiration! Sounds like a perfect snack for last-minute Christmas shopping! Merry Christmas!

  8. Hi Debbie,
    This is my daughters favorite treat at Christmas…
    The only thing is that it does not last long! Especially when there is a crowd.
    All the Best,

  9. Yum! One of my favorites. Wish I had some now 😉

  10. Looks so yummy, English Toffee is a fav of mine….Have a wonderful Holiday!

  11. Deb – you have some of the BEST recipes! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  12. This is one of my families ALL TIME favorite treats. So easy too! Have you ever tried a different chip? Like white choc or butterscotch? Thanks for sharing.

  13. I seen this recipe on facebook this week only it was called Christmas Crack. It also called for saltines, they are not my fav so i thought i would use club crackers or ritz. It called for M&Ms or nuts. I like the heath bars topping or peppermint candy crushed. I think you can use any topping you would like. Will be making this over the weekend using different toppings on it.
