  • 1 ¼ cup butter
  • 30 saltine crackers , plus a few more in case they break
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • ¾ cup finely chopped walnuts


  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Line a 15- x 10-inch jelly roll pan with heavy duty foil. In a medium saucepan melt ¼ cup butter and pour into the prepared pan. Tilt the pan as needed to spread the melted butter out in an even layer to coat all of the foil. Arrange the crackers over the butter.
  • Melt remaining butter in the same saucepan and stir in the brown sugar. Bring to a boil over MEDIUM heat. Reduce heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Mix well. Spread the toffee mixture evenly over the crackers.
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes until mixture is bubbly and golden brown. Carefully remove the pan from the oven.
  • Immediately sprinkle with the chocolate morsels and let stand 5 minutes until the chocolate has melted. Spread the chocolate with an offset spatula or butter knife into an even layer. Sprinkle with the nuts and lightly press them into the melted chocolate. Allow to cool on your kitchen counter or refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
  • Lift the foil to remove the entire sheet of candy from the pan. Carefully peel off and remove the foil. Use a sharp knife to cut the candy into squares.
  • Store the toffee candy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. It's delicious served chilled but can also be served at room temperature.


You can make this candy all year round by using a variety of festive holiday sprinkles. Change up the colors to work with each holiday - red and green for Christmas, fall-inspired colors for Thanksgiving, or pastels for Easter.
Not a fan of walnuts? Try finely chopped pecans, almonds, peanuts, or cashews.
Dark chocolate fans can substitute all or part of the semi-sweet chocolate morsels for bittersweet morsels.
