    I have a love for toffee, crunchy, stick to my teeth toffee. Whether it be just plain, dotted with nuts or drizzled with melted chocolate, I love every type, but my love for the salty and sweet flavor affinity makes any type of saltine cracker toffee my absolute favorite.

    Traditional saltine toffee uses plain old saltine crackers. Light and delicate, but covered in salt, these are the perfect base to be smothered in liquid gold butter toffee mix.

    But I have a new type of saltine toffee, the type that uses Ritz crackers instead of old school saltines. Ritz crackers are essentially a buttery version of saltine. Still flaky and salty, but with more flavor in the actual cracker. Why not add more butter?

    I like to top my saltine toffee off with a spread of chocolate, but you can make yours with or without. If you like this butter toffee, also check out my Candy Toffee and Bacon Chocolate Saltine Toffee!

    Tools for making Saltine Cracker Toffee:

    9 x 13 Glass Baking Dish– an absolute essential for any kitchen! Use it for baking, marinating or storing. Get one with a lid, you’ll thank me later.

    Heavy Bottom Sauce Pan– this will be one of your most used kitchen tools. Having something that is heavy bottom will distribute heat better and prevent burning whether you are using an electric or gas range.

    Offset Spatula – The best way to spread melted chocolate and frosting!
