Salted Toffee

Salted ToffeePinitThis is my perfect food.

But I have to admit, things didn’t start out so well.

In fact, there were a few tears and a lot of vaccuuming after attempt number one:

Broken Pyrex

Good bye, new Pyrex baking dish.

My self confidence plummeted after these horrendous results.

But luckily I have strong determination when it comes to making food with peanut butter, chocolate, and candy.

And so I tried again. This time, I used more safe kitchen practices, such as turning off the burner before setting pans on top of it.

And the end result was glorious. Check out those sweet layers!  Toffee, saltine, peanut butter, chocolate, and candy. Delicious.

Salted Toffee Pieces

Salted Toffee
Recipe type: Dessert
  • One sleeve saltines (salted, obvs)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2½ cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
  • several spoonfuls of peanut butter
  • Chopped candy – pretzel M&M’s, KitKats, etc.
  1. Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Place saltines in a pan (I used a nonstick cake pan) and leave just a little bit of room between each cracker.
  2. Bring sugar and butter to a boil. Once the whole thing starts boiling, boil without stirring for 3 minutes. Pour boiling mixture over crackers. Bake for 5 minutes.
  3. Put small spoonfuls of peanut butter on top of the crackers and toffee. Return to the oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread the melted peanut butter.
  4. Top with chocolate chips and return to the oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate chips until smooth. Top with chopped candy.
  5. Freeze for 1 hour (minimum). Break toffee into small pieces and enjoy!

The one and only problem with this toffee is that, without fail, I always end up with chocolate all over my face.

Has anyone else ever shattered a glass pan? This was officially my most significant kitchen mishap. And I hope I never outdo myself…

  1. I googled peanut butter saltine toffee and found this…
    This might be my perfect food too. No, it IS my perfect food! And yes, I’ve shattered a glass pyrex dish IN the oven. It exploded in the oven and I thought our house was being bombed. Glad no hidden cameras saw my reaction.

    re: shattered Pyrex pan

    Yes! The newer Pyrex and Anchor Hocking dishes are made with a different glass formula and are susceptible to shattering, especially if you take a hot dish and set it on a cooler surface, such as a granite counter top. Glad you were not injured!

  3. I blew up a pan in the oven one time! That was a hot mess. This toffee looks super yummy.

  4. I broke my mom’s pyrex dish when I was trying to melt some chocolate and didn’t see that the boiling water was touching its bottom. Yikes!

  5. My wife and i got now lucky that Peter managed to deal with his reports using the precious recommendations he gained while using the site. It’s not at all simplistic to just possibly be offering information and facts men and women may have been making money from. And we also know we have got you to thank for that. The most important illustrations you’ve made, the simple web site navigation, the relationships you assist to foster – it is mostly wonderful, and it’s really helping our son and our family reckon that the issue is cool, and that is extraordinarily important. Many thanks for all!
