Saltine Toffee Bars are the ultimate sweet and salty treat. With just 5 ingredients, this recipe can be made in 20 minutes from start to finish. The combination of flavors is simply irresistible!

Saltine Toffee Bars are a Christmas tradition at our house, but they are also a go to when I want something sweet and easy to make. The ingredients are most always on hand and any type of nut will work as a substitution if we are out of M&M candies.

What you will need:

  • Saltine Crackers – One sleeve plus a few more crackers
  • Two sticks of Butter – I use salted butter, but unsalted will work just fine too.
  • Brown Sugar
  • Semi – Sweet Chocolate Chips – 11 oz bag or about 2 cups
  • Mini M&M Candies


  • I love this recipe with pecans , but walnuts or peanuts work great as well.
  • Substitute graham crackers for the saltine crackers and sprinkle mini marsh mellows in place of the M&M candies. S’more Toffee Bars sound delicious to me.
  • Who will you be serving? Would your party goers appreciate sour gummy worms? The possibilities are endless!
