Reviews for Saltine Toffee Bark
"LOVE this and its super easy to make!"
"I made this recipe using Round buttery crackers! It gave it a yum boost!! My family loved it"
"Try using Ritz crackers, it is better than with saltines, adds a nice butter flavor."
"Love these types of toffee, very easy and very addictive"
"This is an easy and delicious recipe. I used toffee bits and chopped cashews as toppings. This a great recipe for holiday gift trays."
"Try it with a layer of pretzels instead of saltines. Just be sure the pretzels are all flat and packed tightly together. Yum!"
"This was so easy and absolutely delicious. You can't stop eating it. This will also make great gifts."
"Follow directions but sub graham crackers, must more delicious. .."
"easy to make and very tasty"
"I made these yesterday for the first time, and took them to a Christmas celebration last night. They were a huge hit, and several people asked for the recipe."
"I won't be making this again. I don't know if I did something wrong - I followed all the directions and it turned out a sticky mess. That aside, it tastes wonderful. Like Almond Rocca, When I tried to break it apart it stuck to the foil and the saltines were unmistakeable and the chocolate didn't want to stick to the crackers. I wanted to put these on some gift cookie plates but won't be doing that. My husband is enjoying eating the pieces though. Side note: If someone manages to succeed in making this (different cooking time perhaps?), they could probably get away with using half the amount of toffee bits if they wanted to."
"Just made this. It is yummy and so easy! My family loves it!"
"Super easy to make, so delicious! I like this even better than toffee. Thanks for all of the great reviews or I never would have tried the recipe."
"I have made this....fantastic!!!"
"I'll pour over a mix of fritos and pretzels for a TEXAS blend - wonderful also !"
"Actually, I combined 2 recipes: Saltine Cracker Candy and the Saltine Toffee Bark!I used 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1 cup butter, cubed, 35 saltine crackers, 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter, heated until just smooth, 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, 8-oz. package of Bits o' Brickle Toffee Bits. I purposely omitted the chopped pecans! I'd sprinkled chocolate chips over the peanut butter and placed back in 350o F. oven 5 minutes, then using a flat metal spatula, I spread the chocolate chips evenly. I'd baked the crackers 8 to 10 minutes with the butter-sugar mixture before heating the peanut butter and spreading the peanut butter over the butter-sugar covering. I DID cover the pan of bark and chilled it until set. It will probably be all day in my refrigerator to make sure that the candy bark is REALLY firm! I thank you for this recipe! This is a great holiday recipe! delowenstein"
"My family LOVES this stuff! This was my first time using English toffee bits as I had always just made them plain! This was a hit for sure!! I had to hide some so I could have a few pieces! will make again for sure! It is great to have at Christmas to bring to parties!"
"I have made these before and they are wonderful, everyone should try them. There are so easy to make. And you will love them."
"I've been making these for a few years now. They are everyone's favorite and I get requests for them all year round. I've started to get creative with different combinations. I've done dark chocolate with coconut flakes and Mint choc chips with crushed M&Ms (In the future I'd definitely use mini M&Ms, unless you need to get out some frustration, then stick with the regular size ones and hammer them!). The classic is still a crowd favorite!"
"These are a huge hit every time I make them! The sweet and salty combination is irresistible."
"I made 6 batches of this for a group of employees. I perfected it a bit as a went. It needs a little salt added to the butter/sugar mixture, and I generally don't salt many things. Also, It didn't need a full 8oz bag of toffee bits. If you are making mutiple patches, 2 pkgs will do 3 pans of bark. For the cooking portion, I felt it produced a better product when I boiled the butter sugar mixture for 3-4 minutes and then baked it for 10-12 minutes until it was golden and bubbly. It was a crispier product that broke into pieces much better than when I only baked it only 8-10. It was stickier and didn't break as nice. But the taste is excellent either way!"
"This was the grossest thing I ever made. A waste of good ingredients, time and money."
"I just have to add my comments to the already numerous praises. This is an outstanding recipe! easy and addictive, you have to try this one!"
"This bark is amazing. I took one reviews addvice and put crushed peppermint candy on the top. I got a lot of compliments and people kept coming back for more."
"chocolate didn't stay on the cracker."
"This is a perfect recipe for presents, get togethers or sharing with the kids. I had saltine crackers lying around and saw this recipe and it is soooo good!"
"Substituted Pretzel Crisps for the saltines. What a hit - Everyone has asked for the recipe!"
"I made this along with my favorite truffles for Christmas gifts, and this was the thing I got the most compliments on. Everyone loved it. So did I, but as someone who occasionally takes a little too much pride in never making anything grainy, I thought this was a bit. I tried making it again, wondering if I should cook it longer and really make sure the sugar was dissolved, but the stuff becomes very thick and hard to cook for too long. Anyway, it didn't help with the graininess. Yet, it was only very slight and nobody else noticed it but me. In spite of that, I thought it was delicious and addicting, along with everyone else. I only used a half bag of Heath bits and that was plenty."
"Granddaughter and I made it--easy, fun to do and did we ever get great reviews!!"
"I've had many compliments and recipe requests when I've taken it to events. It is super easy to make but delicious!"
"Very good and easy. My mom and I both made it with Club crackers instead of saltines (we had Club crackers). It is very addicting."
"Absolutly awesome!They are so easy and soooooo yummy!"
"Smashed up candy canes or peanut brittle are much less expensive than english toffee bits and just as tasty!"
"I usually make toffee every Christmas and when I went to pull up the recipe, this popped up. I had everything in the pantry to make it, so I thought I would try it. Well, it is wonderful!! I will definitely be making this instead this year. Toffee is easy, but this is easier and just as tasty. I also made a batch tonight but used white chocolate chips and Christmas sprinkles. It is just as rich and yummy. I like the toffee bits better, but this is so festive with the white chocolate and sprinkles."
"Super-easy and salty-sweet! My family loves it. I look forward to giving it as gifts (it's too addictive to keep in the house!). Instead of buying a bag of Heath bits I ground up some homemade toffee we had lying around and that worked fine."
"I made this yesterday- it's gone. No one can believe it uses saltines. We are making another batch today- simple, fast, a keeper"
"I chopped peppermint candy and sprinkled it on top of the chocolate. Delicious !!!!"
"I have made this for years. I use chopped pecans on top, but might try the toffee pieces next time. Everyone loves this treat. My friends say it so addicting that they now call it crack."
"My daughter and I have been making this for a number of Christmas seasons. It is the best! Never lasts!"
"A friend just gave me a small container of this as a gift; it was gone in a day. She put toasted coconut on top of hers instead of the toffee pieces."
