Chocolate Bacon Saltine Toffee is additively delicious, easy to make and the perfect addition to any holiday cookie tray!
Bacon makes everything better. Right? I sure think so and one of the newest food trends is using bacon in sweet dishes, like Chocolate Bacon Saltine Toffee. Traditional, old school saltine toffee, but with a little added extra, including maple syrup! Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for 6 more outrageous chocolate recipes!
I know, at first you have to wrap your head around it. Sounds a little wonky, but the salty, sweet and chewy nature of bacon makes for an excellent dessert. Judging by the success of my Bourbon Bacon Jam, Candied Bacon and Dark Chocolate Bacon Cookie Sandwiches (coming soon!), Chocolate Bacon Saltine Toffee is about to become your newest food addiction.
Before starting, plan to make 2-3 batches. I promise, you will be grateful you did. While you can certianly use saltine crackers, like in the most traditional quick toffee recipes, I like using Ritz Crackers. They are buttery AND salty, making this classic treat even more decadent. The only issue is that the round shape makes them a little more challenging to fit nicely into the pan and I am totally OCD, so I break a few into smaller pieces to fill in the gaps.

Don’t forget to PIN Chocolate Bacon Saltine Toffee!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper, carefully folding the edges so you can easily lay the crackers flat.
Line baking dish with crackers.
In a medium saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and maple syrup over medium heat, stirring frequently until fully combined and smooth. Do not boil. Pour over crackers, top with crumbled bacon.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.
Melt both white chocolate and milk chocolate in plastic candy bags. Snip ends and drizzle over bacon. Place in the refrigerator until hardened. Remove parchment paper and cut into squares.
