This salted-chocolate toffee is To. Die. For. (Seriously)

Trine Jensen-Burke

You know when you get that overwhelming urge for something chocolaty, but you can’t be arsed getting stuck into a major baking project? Or actually putting proper clothes on to hit the local corner shop for a Mars bar?

Yup, we got you. All you need in your life is this salty, chocolaty, buttery (we are salivating even writing these words) toffee – made with regular old Ritz crackers and ready in minutes. Minutes, I tell you.

So easy, you’d be forgiven for making these over and over (and over and over) again…


1/2 packet of  Ritz crackers
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup crushed pecans (chopped pecans cut up with a knife or smashed in a plastic bag with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer)
2 tbsp. sea salt, for sprinkling


1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celcius.

2. Line a 9-by-13-inch cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place crackers in a single layer on the sheet.

3. Combine brown sugar and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until well combined and the mixture just begins to boil. Once it starts boiling, stop stirring and let boil for 3 minutes. The mixture should darken, thicken and rise up.

4. Give the mixture one quick stir and pour over the crackers. Use a rubber spatula to spread the mixture, making sure they are all covered.

5. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes, then use a rubber spatula to spread the melted chocolate over the crackers. Top with crushed pecans and sprinkle with pinches of sea salt to desired taste.

6. Refrigerate to set and cut into uneven pieces when ready to serve.

Tip: If you don’t scoff all these little beauties yourself (and don’t feel guilty if you do, they are that good!), they also make the cutest little hostess gift too!
