Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee

12 reviews / 4.5 average

Oh hi there.

We meet again. It feels a little weird to be acting normal because in the last three days I’ve become a hopeless wanderer in the land of pre-Christmas, running into things such as quick trips to the store for wrapping paper because somehow, some-how, I did not buy enough? It’s really a mystery. Add to that a failed Swedish tea ring, a sore throat sick day, and hours spent trying to track down UPS packages. WHAT IS GOING ON. And honestly, UPS, please call me. Puhleeese.

But happy times. Seriously, every time I see our tree all lit up I just get a little giddy. And when I eat handfuls of this saltine toffee, I get a lot giddy. It’s a week before Christmas and that means it’s time for us procrastinators to make some foolproof toffee. Did I mention that the toffee base is my two favorite Christmas things: Butter and Brown Sugar? And that it’s topped with melted peanut butter and chocolate and then frozen into salty sweet perfection? Okay, well, I’m telling you now.

In the name of keeping things simple, here’s a simple little visual recipe with photos of how you can make this happen in about two seconds.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine Toffee! The most basic, delicious dessert for the holiday season. Just a few ingredients and super easy to make!


  • 1 cup brown sugar

One more thing!

It’s a day for sharing pictures of my family adventure to get the Christmas tree! Ya know, just for fun, to make up for a few days of Christmas mania and remind myself of why this all is worthwhile. We love the Wolcyn Tree Farm in me and Bjork’s small-town-home-town and it’s a tradition for my family to go there every year to get our tree. Partly because of the cider and cookies, but partly more because of the amazing Adie who sorta runs the place (top right, in full Christmas joy form). This year was no exception; we had a great time cutting down our own tree – me with a saw – yes. And G-ma even came along.

After being in the Philippines last year and missing out on all these little things, I am so extra thankful for the family moments this year. ♥︎

Hope you’re all having a great time Christmasing! XO

    I adore the American tradition of Christmas tree shopping. We never get anything close to it down under. It must be such a great family bonding experience when you together choose the highlight of the room.

    Yummo to this toffee and the sprinkles are too cute!

    yum! My friend made these for a cookie exchange and I loved it! Although, to up the saltiness I will probably add a little sea salt to the top instead of sprinkles.

    I was just thinking this morning that I’ve done zero Christmas treat making and how I need to find something easy. Lindsay FTW!

    This looks way too good to be true. I’ve never tried saltine toffee and I don’t know why, looks totally mouthwatering awesome! It must have been so fun to cut down your own Christmas tree.

    I am right there with you on the Christmas procrastination and busy-ness… I haven’t even thought of any good gifts for my parents, let alone wrapped them! But they never say no to sweets. Especially ones with chocolate involved. Maybe it’s time for me to try this quick and easy toffee saltine toffee recipe for them!
