White Chocolate Toffee


Saltine toffee with a caramel toffee sauce and white chocolate coating.  Nuts and cherries add a burst of texture and flavor! lemonsforlulu.com

I love toffee.  It’s amazing something so simple and so delicious is only made once a year! Toffee has to be included in the annual cookie tray.  My brother-in-law would protest if I didn’t make toffee!

Typically, I make toffee with butter and brown sugar, boiling away until it reaches the proper temperature for toffee perfection.  I’ve always heard about saltine toffee, but I’ve never tried it until today.   Holy cow, why the heck did it take me so long!  I cannot believe how simple and how fantastic this is!  You get all the glorious flavor of toffee, but with a little extra crunch from the crackers.  This is all completely magical because you cannot actually taste the crackers!  Who is the mastermind behind this candy?  I want to marry them.  Ok, so not really, but I am in love with this recipe!

The entire pan of toffee took me about 20 minutes to make.  The beauty is its baked!  When my pot of gold came out of the oven, I topped it with chopped white chocolate.  I spread the chocolate to coat it all like frosting then sprinkled pecans and cranberries.  Festive and perfect!

    do I put the crackers on the cookie sheet on top of the foil?

    • Thanks Jessica! My husband didn’t even get a chance to try it!

I first had it in school when my classmate brought it for a holiday party (remember when us kids could actually have holiday parties?!) and I fell in love instantly, only to never make it when I was older–blasphemy! This version looks delectable with the white choc and cranberries.. totally drooling over it!
