I’m sure they’re called something else. My Mom calls them “Cracker Candy” which I guess could translate to Redneck Toffee/Chocolate Bars but…

Face is, you’ve got a lot of leftover chocolate and brown sugar from your holiday cooking. Here’s a great way to get rid of some of it. Use the recipe down below as your guide.


1 Tube Saltine Crackers (WITH Salt)

6-10 Hershey’s Chocolate Bars

2 Sticks of Butter

1 Cup Light Brown Sugar

Pecans or Walnuts

Aluminum Foil

Preheat oven to 400.

Cover a cookie sheet (preferably the kind with a lip all around it) with aluminum foil.

Line a tube of Saltine Crackers, Salt Side Up, end to end on your cookie sheet.
Melt Butter over low heat. Add brown sugar slowly until it makes a caramel like mixture. Do NOT let the sugar carmalize, simple melt it into the butter until smooth.
Pour and spread the toffee over the crackers.

Bake for 5 minutes. The toffee mixture will drip into your oven if you don’t use a sheet with a lip all around and if you’re not familiar with the smell of burning sugar…well…let’s say it’s a great way to test your smoke alarms.
Cover the now bubbling crackers with the chocolate bars, “HERSHEY’S” side down.

Wait until the top of the chocolate appears wet and spread it around. Add nuts.
This time of year, stick it outside in your garage for about an hour, otherwise freeze for at least an hour.

When good and set, break it into bite sized pieces and keep in a airtight containers.

Don’t worry about a shelf-life. You won’t have any left over after a couple of days if you have ANYONE with a sweet tooth in your house.
