Saltine Toffee AKA Christmas Crack is the easiest recipe but is so super addicting! It is sure to mix up your Christmas cookie baking with something different but just as satisfying for your sweet tooth.
Hey y’all! Things have been crazy around here the past few days. Poor Liam came down with Hand Foot Mouth which disguised itself as a relentless fever the end of the week and into weekend until he broke out in a full fullbody rash on Sunday morning. We took a quick trip to KidMed where they diagnosed him and, unfortunately, we just had to wait until the virus worked its way out of his little system. Thankfully, today he really seemed to be on the up and up and went back to daycare. I’m hoping we’re out of the woods and he’s officially on the up and up!
But now that we have that behind us, it is officially Christmastime around here! We got a few inches of snow this weekend which really made it set in that the biggest holiday of the year is officially upon us…and we’re so not ready. We still have some shopping to finish so we’ll be shopping right down to the wire. If you’re stumped on some of the tough to buy for folks on your list, don’t forget my holiday gift guides from last week!
That also means I haven’t started any holiday baking yet with the exception of this Christmas Crack which doesn’t even classify as baking to me. This is easily one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make and it only occupies room in your oven for a whole 6 minutes total! Can’t beat that!
Christmas Crack is a great gift idea too! You could wrap up in a cute cellophane bag with pretty ribbon to give instead of traditional baked goods. And trust me, they’ll be coming back for more. I was debating sharing the batch I made with my coworkers… But then Tyler and I tasted it and remembered just how good it was. Now we’re eating the whole batch just the two of us. YOLO!
I know this will be a recipe we make year after year at Christmastime along with Hot Virginia Dip. Classic but easy dishes that are crowd pleasers are the way to go for us! Hopefully this will be a recipe you and your family can enjoy as well.
