This crazy delicious saltine cracker toffee recipe I made last year appears often in our house, only this time I thought I would change things up and give this toffee a peanut butter makeover!

Every week I try to plan out our menu. I find that writing it down and shopping for those ingredients makes dinnertime less stressful.

I do the same for desserts, only I plan them monthly. I list out all the treats I want to try, and plan them around special events that month. I also try to bake cookies on Mondays, so that my kids have a sweet treat for their lunches each week.

But, when in doubt, or my mind goes blank, I start looking at my own blog for recipe inspiration.

Noting that the saltine toffee was a huge hit, I thought I would experiment with peanut butter. I wasn’t even sure if it would taste good.

Well, clearly it was amazing or I wouldn’t be sharing the recipe you guys. This stuff is like crack. I used Club crackers instead of saltines (although saltines would certainly work just fine). The club crackers made it very FLAKY and delicious.

A few quick tips:
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner. This will not only make the crackers easier to remove from the pan, but it will make clean up so much easier!
  • Allow crackers to cool completely before breaking into pieces. You can either let them cool in the pan, or using the parchment paper, slide the entire pan of toffee onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Once cooled, use a sharp knife to cut these into pieces. Store in airtight container until ready to eat.
