Chocolate crack on a cookie sheet

Halloween chocolate crack is one of those recipes that seems like it would be a little tough to make, because candy can be fickle, but it’s not. There’s no thermometer involved, just two ingredients in a saucepan and a little bit of boiling, short amount of baking, and topped with chocolate chips and candy. 

The cracker candy is absolutely delicious, too. I’ve made Christmas crack in the past and people keep coming back for more. The toffee, chocolate, and candy combination are addictive. 

If you love candy, give this easy holiday peanut brittle a try. It’s simple to make and the perfect gift for the holidays. 

What do I need to make the Saltine cracker candy?

(Measurements and full recipe at the bottom of the post)

  • Saltine crackers (or the generic brand)
  • Light brown sugar
  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Halloween candy decorations 
  • Saucepan
  • Oven
  • Cookie sheet
  • Tinfoil
  • Non-stick spray

How do I make the cracker candy?

  1. Spread a piece of tin foil over a cookie sheet and spray with non-stick spray. 
  2. Spread the crackers out on the cookie sheet, filling it up. 
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter and brown sugar until it melts and boils, on medium-high heat. 
  4. Once the mixture boils, gently pour it over the crackers. 
  5. Bake the crackers and toffee mixture for seven minutes on 350-degrees.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the bag of chocolate chips on top of the toffee mixture. 
  7. Wait about one minute for the chocolate to soften and spread out with a knife. 
  8. Top with Halloween candy. 
  9. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and break into pieces. 

Candy and Halloween decorations on a countertop

I used candy eyes from Wilton, as well as Halloween sprinkles, and their disposable counter covers. Be sure to check out their Halloween line up, as they have a lot of fun treats, cupcake holders, and so much more. Here’s the link to get over to Wilton’s Halloween page


Full Recipe and Printable Instructions Listed Below

Tin foil on a cookie sheet with non-stick spray for cracker candy

First, line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray with non-stick spray.

I used a jelly roll pan, which is about 10″ x 15,” so any size close to that will work. 


Saltine crackers laid out on a cookie sheet for crack candy

Line the crackers on the cookie sheet. I put as many as I have room for on the sheet.

If you’ll notice in the picture above, I used a disposable counter cover from Wilton. The box comes with 10 covers and they are large enough to cover a lot of your counter. 

It kept the counter from getting sticky and messy, so clean up was literally a cinch. 


Butter and brown sugar in a saucepan making cracker candy

Secondly, add the butter and light brown sugar to a saucepan and turn it on medium-high. Bring it to a boil. 


Boiling brown sugar and butter in a saucepan to create toffee

Once the mixture boils, take it off of the stove and pour it over the crackers. You don’t need a thermometer, we’re just getting it to the boiling point. Let it boil for about 30 seconds or so and take it off. 


Pouring toffee over saltine crackers

Pour the toffee over the crackers.

They might shift a little as you pour, but that’s ok, you can either leave them or shift them back to their position with a fork. 


Toffee poured over crackers.

Place the crackers and toffee in a preheated oven for 7 minutes. The toffee will bubble up and cook more in the oven. 


Chocolate chips on top of toffee and crackersSprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the toffee while it’s still hot and allow the chips to sit there for about a minute to soften.

Once the chocolate softens, spread it out. It looks so delicious when it’s melted and spread out over the toffee. 


Halloween candy sprinkled on top of chocolate, toffee, and crackers

Sprinkle the candy on top of the chocolate and toffee and refrigerate for a couple of hours to harden the toffee and chocolate.

Wilton sent sprinkles with Halloween colors and fun little black bats. They also sent a pack of eyes that make the treat fun for kids and adults!

Finally, after you’ve refrigerated the Halloween chocolate crack for a couple of hours, break it into smaller pieces and enjoy.

The tinfoil might stick a little, but it will peel right off. 

I usually keep it in the refrigerator, because it will soften a bit if you leave it out. But, it is fine on the counter.
