Lately I’ve been on a kick making some old school recipes that my Grandma used to make. Sometimes I get so caught up in trying new things I forgo the old classics that have stood the test of time for a reason. This yummy “Christmas Crack” recipe is one of those recipes. It’s a Saltine cracker toffee that you can change up and customize so many different ways-it always turns out amazing!
I love that you can whip this up in about 20 minutes, making it the perfect last-minute treat. You probably already have all the ingredients too! For the holidays I top this with Christmas sprinkles and M&Ms but you could also use chopped nuts or candies as well.
