Butter Nut Crunch Toffee

December 23, 2013 by 4 Comments

Hi  Friends!  We had a super good time in the Dallas area this past weekend.  It was so much fun to see our kids and grands. We had lots of catching up to do since we missed a special birthday and performance a couple of weeks ago due to inclement weather. On Thursday we enjoyed dinner at the Cheese Cake Factory, some Christmas shopping at Southlake, more shopping in Ft.Worth the next day and lunch at In and Out Burger.  After a yummy lunch, back on the road again. We had to get back home, it was time to get some sweets made for our friends and neighbors. One of my favorite treats to make during the holiday season is Butter Nut Crunch Toffee.  A delicious combination of sweet and salty, buttery and crunch.  I just happened to have all of the ingredients in my pantry, no need to stop at the market.  Easy, peasy and oh so good!

Butter Nut Crunch Toffee


about 40 saltine crackers

1  cup butter

1  cup brown sugar

12  oz. chocolate chips

1  cup crushed nuts


Place crackers ( do not overlap) on a foil-lined cookie sheet.  Melt butter in a saucepan; add brown sugar and boil for 3 minutes exactly, stirring constantly.  Pour mixture over crackers, spreading all over the the tops of crackers.  Bake in 4oo degree oven for 5 minutes.  Take out of oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips; after 2 minutes, spread chocolate chips over top with the back of a spoon.  Sprinkle crushed nuts evenly over the top. Cool in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  Cut with a sharp knife in long rows and then cut into pieces.  Clean up is a snap because of the aluminium foil.

    Thank you for publishing this recipe. A former neighbor used to make this candy every year, and I miss having it! I’m pinning so I can make it, too. Merry Christmas!

    I recently made toffee, the real stuff, and decided it was not one bit better than this and a whole lot more trouble. Do you ever use graham crackers? Yummy, too.

  4. Oh, thanks for this recipe! It sounds like one I was searching for!
    Hope your season has been very merry thus far. Blessings,
