You can also use Ritz Crackers or Club crackers for this recipe and I crushed up candy canes for the topping.
I just made the regular ones and boy they are wonderful. It’s hard to stay away from them
Thank you for all the suggestions, chocolate crinkles and now the ‘crack’ will stay on my Christmas list . Happy Holidays
I don’t know what i’m doing wrong, but the last couple of times I have made this, the crackers were kind of soggy with butter. Any tips? It then broke apart in the exact saltine cracker shapes.
Hi! I wonder if you need to cook the caramel butter sugar a little longer, or bake it in the oven longer, or if your oven runs a little cool. Try cooking the sugar just a little bit longer on the stove (closer to the 5 minute mark) than increasing the oven temp to 425°F (making sure it’s fully pre-heated) and baking for 5 to 7 minutes long. You want to make sure the caramel sugar on top is bubbly when you pull it out of the oven. That way, when it hardens, it won’t soak into the crackers but rather harden on top!
We make this every holiday season but use matzo crackers instead of saltines, top chocolate with finely chopped pecans and drizzle homemade caramel sauce over them.
Always a favorite!
Hi, about the mini marshmallows. You did say to put them on before baking? I have not made this recipe yet. I don’t know remember how long it said to bake so I’m assuming that the marshmallows will not melt our barn?
Anyone have ideas for different names for this recipe? I have some recovering addicts in my family and, whatever their vice may have been, I feel that calling anything I offer to feed them ‘crack’ would be a definite punching-down sort of joke.
Hi, April! I totally understand. It’s a weird name, but that’s what it’s called! Instead, you could refer to it as Saltine Toffee or Cracker Toffee. Enjoy!
