The Easiest Peanut Butter Toffee Recipe with a secret ingredient... Saltines

Monday, February 21, 2011


This really is the easiest toffee you will ever make. The special ingredient of Saltines adds such a great texture. It's almost like a thin flaky crust in the middle. There really are no words to describe the taste and  texture that the saltines create.

Here is the recipe step by step... easy, simple and few ingredients.

Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper (the pan needs to have a lip to it or these things will leak all over your oven) Place saltines in pan, salted side up. Leave just a bit of space between crackers so the toffee with encase the entire cracker when done.

Bring sugar and butter to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 3 minutes (time the boiling after the whole thing starts to boiling, not just the edges). And, resist the urge to stir it. I know it hard... but you can do it!

Pour boiling mixture over the crackers. I like to start at the top left corner and drizzle the mixture across each row working your way downward.  Place in oven for 5 minutes.

While that is baking separate the color scheme you want. (we used the green and yellow for St Patrick's Day) Then chop the M&M's, you want a variety of sizes so you can see the colors of the M&M's. You can use peanut or normal. I like to use peanut M&M's for adults and plain for kids.

Sometimes the saltines can spread apart like my far right row. Just push it in with a spatula and it will be fine.

Here's a close up after taking it out of the oven. All bubbly and hot.... and so good!


Top with chocolate chips evenly across the saltines. Then back in the oven for 1 minute. 

 The chocolate chips will be soft and melted. Now spread the chocolate evenly. 


 Put dollops of peanut butter. Return to the oven for 1 minute. 

Marble the melted peanut butter it into the melted chocolate.

Top with M&m pieces (or whatever you come up with) Place in freezer for at least 1 hour. Once these are set, crack them into individual pieces.

  3. If by chance you are reading this post wondering if these are good...I just finished making them this afternoon and I am pretty sure the batch I made for the party tomorrow is most likely going to be eaten before it even starts. They are so dang good.
