For my daughter’s 1st birthday party, I put together a huge dessert spread. I’m talking two varieties of cupcakes, rice krispie squares, chocolate covered pretzel sticks, brownies, chocolate number “ones” and these highly addictive Chocolate Toffee Squares. I made a double batch of these and boy did they ever disappear quickly!
The combination of a super flaky cracker crust, topped with buttery toffee, two different kinds of melted chocolate and pecans is irresistible. What’s even better, they are super easy to make and sure to please a crowd.
There is also looks of room to play around with this recipe if you’d like. You can top it with just about anything you want – think walnuts, peanut butter chocolate chips, crushed candy canes! So delicious and so easy. Enjoy!

- 1 box saltine crackers (the ones topped with salt)
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- ½ bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ bag milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup pecans (or walnuts)
- ½ teaspoon sea salt (I use pink Himalayan sea salt)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil and top with sheet of parchment paper.
- Cover parchment paper with saltine crackers until the entire pan is filled.
- To make the toffee combine butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk, until mixture comes to a boil. Once mixture comes to a boil, continue cooking and stirring for another 3-4 min until thickened.
- Immediately pour toffee over saltines. Using a spatula or a spoon, spread into an even layer.
- Place pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan and place on a cooling rack. Immediately scatter both types of chocolate chips evenly over the top. Wait a few minutes for the chips to soften, then use a spatula to spread chocolate into an even layer.
- Sprinkle with your choice of nuts and sea salt (if desired).
- Place in fridge for about 30-40 minutes until chocolate is firm,
- Transfer toffee onto a large cutting board and cut into desired square pieces.
