Easter Saltine Toffee
Hi Everyone, what do you like to make for Easter? Looking for something to leave out for the Easter bunny? Why not try this Easter Saltine Toffee? It’s the “Easter” version of a classic saltine toffee recipe. This can be a new, easy and fun Easter tradition 🙂
I love these “Crack” or Saltine Toffee recipes because they are so simple to make with everyday pantry ingredients that I already have on hand. I am always finding a reason to make Saltine Toffee recipes, for example, when I was craving butterscotch, I made this Chocolate Butterscotch Saltine Toffee. It’s perfect when you have a craving for something satisfying (hint: it’s that combination of butter and chocolate with Saltine crackers!) and sweet. That buttery, crunchy texture is so yummy and I find that it goes perfectly with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Doesn’t this Easter Saltine Toffee look so festive with all the pastel colors? I topped it with M&M’s (a personal favorite) but you can use your favorite Easter-themed candies – as much or as little as you want.
This Easter Saltine Toffee would also make a welcome, edible gift for family and friends – who wouldn’t want a cellophane bag filled with these bright sweeties?
It’s easy to make a lot of it too, so if you need a party favor for an Easter party, you can easily make batch or double batch of it.
Ingredients for Easter Saltine Toffee
- 48 (or more, depending on the size of your baking sheet) Saltine crackers (regular)
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
- 6 ounces white chocolate chip morsels, use the best quality possible because white chocolate is a little harder to melt *see below for substitution
- 1-2 drops of gel food coloring (I used red to make pink and green) – to make the white chocolate have some pastel color to it. *you could also try using colored candy melts in the same amount as the white chocolate – this is optional and you can always just leave the white chocolate white
- Easter and Springtime-themed sprinkles and candy, amount to taste
