Saltine Cracker Toffee Recipe

My niece Katherine began making this simple, yet scrumptious cracker toffee for our Christmas celebrations years ago and with one bite, it became a must-make tradition! I was thrilled when we created a a video to show you just how easy it is to make! We also included step-by-step photographs as well!

Begin by lining your baking sheet with parchment paper. Katherine recommends leaving a little bit of overhang on your parchment paper so that you can easily lift it out of the pan once ready to serve.

Once you have your pan prepared, arrange your saltine crackers on your prepared baking sheet. Make sure to place each of the saltine crackers so that they touch edge to edge and so that the salt on the saltine is facing down.

Set aside.

Add the butter and sugar to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Once it begins to bubble around the edges, allow to boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract with a wooden spoon.
