Ritz Cracker Toffee is the best holiday sweet treat recipe! Made with buttery crackers, rich homemade toffee, and smooth semi sweet chocolate on top … this homemade Christmas crack is crunchy, sticky, delicious, and easy to make. Perfect to serve at holiday parties and gift throughout the season!




  1. Set the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Then arrange the Ritz crackers in a single layer on an aluminum foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Try to not leave any large spaces between the crackers.
  3. Next add the butter and light brown sugar to a medium saucepan on the stove over medium heat.  Melt then bring to a boil.  Let boil for 3 minutes, stirring throughout.
  4. Then remove the toffee mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Next pour the toffee on top of the ritz crackers.  Spread evenly and quickly as the toffee will begin to harden.
  6. Then place the baking sheet in the warm oven for 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the toffee.  The heat from the buttery toffee will melt the chocolate chips. 
  8. Spread the melted chocolate chips into a smooth even layer. 
  9. Then allow the ritz cracker candy to cool down to room temperature.  Once at room temperature, place the whole pan in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
  10. Remove the toffee from fridge.  Sprinkle with sea salt and use a sharp knife to cut into squares.  I cut it into 24 squares.
  11. Serve and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.
