Chocolate Crack

Here's a recipe I want to share with all of you because it's sooo easy and I bet you already have the ingredients in your pantry.

It's called a lot of different things such as Cowboy Crack, Redneck Crack, Soda Cracker Candy, Saltine Cookies. We call it chocolate crack because after eating one little piece you are hooked and left wanting more and more!

40 Saltine crackers (my pan only holds 35)
2 sticks unsalted butter (do not use margarine)
1 cup brown sugar (I've used both light & dark)
8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips (I've used all kinds of chips, but semi's are our favorite for this)

Preheat oven at 425 degrees. Line a rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil then your crackers.

In a medium pan, melt butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over crackers, covering them evenly. Put cookie sheet into oven and watch closely. Bake for about 4-5 minutes, or until just bubbly.

Remove from oven and pour chocolate chips over crackers. When chips begin to melt, spread out over crackers with a knife to form a solid sheet. Transfer pan to freezer for about 20 minutes, or until completely cooled. Break into pieces and store in airtight container.

This recipe is great using graham crackers as well. Regular grahams, honey grahams and I've even used cinnamon grahams. Try throwing some crushed nuts on top of the crackers before pouring on toffee mix. I made it once with crushed peanuts for the base instead of any crackers.

There are so many different ways to use what you have on hand. Let me know how you like them and made yours!


  1. just made this this past week. It goes over big with everyone.

  2. I used to make this a lot, but Shane doesn't like toffee or caramel flavors, so I haven't made it in quite some time. I always used regular saltines.

    We called Copycat Almond Roca. I think that's what some people call the toffee with chocolate on top (no crackers), but we called that Copy Cat Heath Bar.

    Annie I only make it when I know I'm going to have others around to eat it. Otherwise I end up eating all of it.... not good!
