Shout-Out Sunday: Foodie Edition. Plus, a Sweet Christmas Recipe

Hello everyone!

You know I can’t remember the last time I posted a Shout-out Sunday. Do you? It was one of my favorite posts to do.  I’m hoping I can keep up with the Shout-out Sunday every week! If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email me!

During the holidays, I tend to cook A LOT like so many other people.  I love to make traditional Puerto Rican foods such as arroz con gandules (rice and pigeon peas), pernil (pork roast), Flan (caramel custard) and Coquito (Puerto Rican Egg Nog).

This year I wanted to change things up a bit and make something I’ve never heard of.  Many people call it Christmas Crack or better known as Christmas Toffee.  I guess people call it Crack because it can be HIGHLY addicting! I tried it once last year at my old job but my co-worker who made it just called it Chocolate Toffee.  She gave me the recipe but I lost it.

As I was looking though Pinterest, I kept seeing recipes for Christmas Crack.  When I saw the pics, I knew that was the recipe my old co-worker gave me.

I decided to make it this weekend and let me tell you, it was a HUGE hit!  And it was extremely simple and easy to make.

Christmas Crack aka Chocolate Toffee


Christmas Toffee Ingredients

2 Sticks of Butter
1 Cup of Brown Sugar (light or brown – Your choice!)
A whole sleeve of Saltine Crackers
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract (optional)
12-oz bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Jelly Roll Pan
Aluminum Foil


Preheat your oven to 350° degrees.

Wrap the jelly roll pan with aluminum foil.  While you line the pan with crackers, heat the butter in a small pot with the brown sugar on low to medium heat.  Stir constantly so it doesn’t burn.  Once its incorporated, cook for about 3 minutes without stirring.
Christmas Toffee Step by StepPour the hot sugar mixture over the crackers and bake for 5-7  minutes.  Remove from the oven and quickly sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Christmas Toffee Hot Sugar MixtureReturn the pan into the oven for one minute and remove.  Carefully with the back of a spoon, spread the chocolate chips over the crackers.  Place pan into refrigerator for a couple of hours. After it’s chilled, break apart and enjoy!
