Saltine Cracker Toffee | White Lights on Wednesday

Let’s get all serious for a minute.  Bra shopping is hard.  Whatever happened to a bra that just fits and doesn’t make you look all weird and confined.  I don’t need a push-up, 10-in-one, since when are they that shape?!? bra.  I just want something cute, affordable, and that leaves the girls looking like themselves.

I feel better now.  Thanks.  Five days of bra shopping and not finding one you like takes its toll on a girl.  Too make things better let’s have some chocolate and toffee!  My mom made this toffee for Christmas and I’ve been day dreaming about it.  You’ll get addicted.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

  • 1 1/2 sleeves saltine crackers or enough to cover your baking sheet
  • 2 sticks 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • One 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet (bottom and sides) with foil.
  2. Place the saltine crackers on your prepared baking sheet so that they cover the entrie tray in a single layer. You can break crackers if needed to fill in the edges.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, and allow to boil for 3 minutes without stirring. Pour mixture evenly over the crackers.
  4. Place crackers in oven and bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately top with chocolate chips. Let chocolate chips sit for 2 minutes on the hot crackers. Using an offset spatula, spread chocolate over the top of the crackers so the toffee is completely covered.
  6. Allow toffee to cool completely (the fridge helps). Break into pieces. Best served cold – at least I think so.

    Yum! That looks great!

    Also, I completely commiserate about the bra shopping – it's something I avoid as much as possible. Now that I'm prego I know I have to go soon b/c what I have just isn't cutting it anymore (yeah… I almost fell out of one yesterday), but I'm still putting it off as long as possible.

    My best friend made me some of this for Christmas this year- it was AMAZING! We gobbled it up in no time!
    I too HATE bra shopping– it's the worst! My husband refuses to go with me anymore because I get so frustrated. But the Victoria Secret semi annual sale starts soon- so hopefully I can find a style I like and just stock back up! 🙂

    I remember this stuff from childhood and it is GOOD! I agree about bra shopping too. It's like a scientist took over the industry.
