"Easy to prepare using pantry staples, this recipe is always a hit," writes Jo Ann Dalrymple from Claremore, Oklahoma. Her sweetly unique bites start with saltine crackers and are drizzled with white chocolate for an elegant and easy accent.


  • 37 saltines cracker squares
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ounce white baking chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


  1. Place crackers in a single layer in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. In a large saucepan, bring butter and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and sugar is completely dissolved. Spread over crackers.
  2. Bake at 350° for 7-8 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with chips. Bake 3-5 minutes longer or until chips begin to melt; spread chocolate evenly over top.
  3. In a microwave, melt white chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over toffee. Chill for 15-20 minutes or until set; break into pieces. Store in the refrigerator.

    An oldie but goodie recipe that has been around for eons. So easy to make and so delicious to eat. Another variation is to use brown sugar which is better IMHO.

    This is the recipe that we make every Christmas, ever since I saw it in Q/C of '04. Everyone loves it, and always ask "Are you making a lot of Saltine Toffee this year?" Quick, delicious, and can be topped with a variety of nuts or types of drizzles. Thank you Jo Ann for this recipe!

    This is my go to no fail recipe. Everyone loves it where ever I take it. I don't usually bother with white drizzle I sprinkle with either walnuts or pecans what ever I have on hand. Makes it more like English toffee. Would not recommend for microwave

    OK Girls what did I do wrong? Butter and sugar separated and the sugar never completely melted. I used the microwaves was that my problem?

    I love this recipe. I have even used gluten free crackers and it still turns out great! Love how easy this recipe is. Everyone loves it and are always surprised it is made out of crackers!

    My parents asked me NOT to make this for them anymore!!! Once you start eating these addicting saltines you can't stop. I also use brown sugar. The beauty of this recipe is it allows you to use what is on hand. Any kind of chocolate chips or nuts works great. This allows you to customize each tray.

    I used brown sugar instead of white. I have made this over and over again. It is very simple and makes a large batch. We like to package this up as gifts and have also sold it at craft fairs. Very, Very good!
