This Halloween Candy Cracker Toffee is a fun and easy treat using crackers, butter, brown sugar, chocolate, and Halloween candy.
“This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek!
I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.”
In this post I used Dixie Crystals Sugar granulated sugar which was sent to me by Dixie for free for participating in #HalloweenTreatsWeek.
Well, it’s the last day of Halloween Treats Week.
I hope you have enjoyed not only my recipes but the other bloggers recipes as well.
Special thanks to Angie as always for putting on another great blogging event.
I end this week with Halloween Candy Cracker Toffee.
Now I won’t say it’s for leftover Halloween candy because everyone always says what leftover candy?
But around here we buy bags and bags of candy…and in four years have had a total of ZERO trick or treaters.
Our neighborhood is out in the sticks and does not have sidewalks or streetlights.
The houses are not that close together either.
So not exactly ideal for trick or treating.
But we buy candy all the same.
Therefore, we always have leftover candy.
And while I can always just eat it, I do try and make something with it.
Cracker toffee if you are not familiar with it is super easy to make yet super yummy.
Originally people used Saltine crackers but I like to use the butter (such as Club) crackers because well, they have more flavor.
More butter flavor.
Then some brown sugar and butter boiled up together.
Poured over the crackers.
Then baked for a few minutes.
Topped with chocolate.
And then you add whatever you want on top.
In this case Halloween candy.

- 1 cup salted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- Club House Crackers (enough crackers to make a layer on a cookie sheet about 1 1/2 sleeves)
- 12 oz. chocolate chips
- 3 cups chopped up Halloween candy of your choice
Bring the butter and brown sugar to a boil in a saucepan and simmer it for about 5 minutes.
Put a layer of crackers on the cookie sheet, close together.
Pour the brown sugar mixture over the crackers and bake for about 6-10 minutes (I do the 10) at 350F.
Remove and immediately pour the chocolate chips over the crackers, evenly distributing them.
Put back in oven for 1 minute.
Remove from oven and let it sit for about 30 seconds.
Then with the back of a spatula I move the chocolate chips just a little bit. I wait another 30 seconds and repeat.
I start to slowly move the chocolate around being careful not to move the crackers.
I let is sit for another 30 seconds and at this point it pretty much spreads like frosting.
Place the candy either random or strategically on top of the chocolate layer.
Push slightly down on the candy so it will stay in place.
Let it set up in freezer for about and hour and then break into pieces.
