Christmas Crack | Ritz Cracker Toffee



Y'ALL!!! I am SO excited to share this recipe! I had never heard of this before but I am a believer now! I don't really like a lot of sweet stuff but this recipe is so, SO good. 

I saw this recipe, believe it or not, on one of those crazy Facebook videos that everyone is always sharing. I saved it because it looked easy to make and I thought I could wrap some up to give to my neighbors. Make 2 batches because you will want to eat it ALL! :)




These are the ingredients I used, nothing fancy! My Uncle gave me some pecans from his tree when I visited for Thanksgiving. I was excited to get them home and shell them so I could use them in a recipe. Well, it turns out shelling pecans is one of the hardest things you will ever do! I kept trying to figure out the "trick" to it. Turns out, it's just awful either way and now I know why they cost so much in the store. It's a miracle if you get a whole one without breaking it! 



Ingredients: 

  • 3 sleeves of Ritz crackers
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar 
  • 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Line with crackers. Try not to overlap them, but if they do a little it's ok. 



Next, in a medium sauce pan, bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil on medium heat. Do not stir. Let boil for 3 minutes. 

.

Remove from heat and pour evenly over the crackers. If they are not all completely covered, that's ok it will spread. Just try to cover them all as best as possible. 
Bake for 5 minutes.

Pull them out of the oven (BE CAREFUL!) pour on the chocolate chips and spread evenly over the crackers. Then top with pecans an let cool for 5 min. 

Place in the freezer and let it harden for 1 hour. 


When you pull it out, just break it into uneven "bark" pieces. This looks so cute in packages! I put some of mine in little cookie boxes, some in Christmas tins and the rest in little treat bags. 

*My husband doesn't like nuts so I made some with no nuts and it was still just as delicious! You can leave out the nuts for some who do not like them or have an allergy. I'm sure it would taste good with almonds or cashews, as well. 

ENJOY!
