Easter Crack | Saltine Toffee Candy

Share on social media

Easter has some of the best sweet treats, and we used a few of them to make this Easter Crack. I’m not sure if they call it crack because it is addicting, or if its because of the crackers, but this saltine toffee candy is delicious, it is the same as the Christmas crack we are used to, but the process and toppings are a bit different. We included some of our favorite Easter candies, including Cadbury mini eggs, also seen here in our Cadbury Mini Egg Cheesecake Dip.

Of course, we used our favorite Easter candies on top of our Easter Bark – pastel M&Ms and those yummy little mini eggs. We sprinkled on some fun sprinkles and did the chocolate just a bit differently. Now I’m unsure if I prefer this made with milk chocolate or white chocolate. They are both so good. There are so many ways to make bark candy and this method has quickly become our go-to.

Easter Crack Ingredients & Directions

This recipe is so easy to make. Here’s the full list of what you’ll need-

To make this Easter variety saltine toffee candy, start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees farenheit. Take out a rimmed baking sheet, and line it with parchment paper. Then, you’ll add your saltines in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Next, add your cup of butter to a medium sauce pan, and heat over medium heat until melted. Add the brown sugar, and cook for about 3-4 minutes until the brown sugar is dissolved. Pour the sugar/butter mixture evenly over your saltine crackers.

Place the pan into your oven, and bake for about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt 2 cups of the white chocolate chips by adding to a microwave safe bowl and microwaving on 30 second intervals, stirring well in between. You want the chocolate to be melted and easily spreadable. Once the saltines and brown sugar/butter mixture are nice and bubbly, remove from the oven.

As evenly as you can, pour the melted white chocolate over the top. Use a fork to gently spread the white chocolate around over top of the crackers.

Next, melt the other cup of white chocolate chips the same way. Once melted, add 1-2 drops of pink gel food coloring and stir well to combine. Pour the pink chocolate evenly over the white chocolate, and use a fork to swirl it around and make colorful swirls throughout the chocolate.

Finally, add your toppings. You can alter/change these as you wish, but we used pastel M&Ms, chopped up Cadbury mini eggs, and some fun Easter sprinkles.

Move your bark to the refrigerator for an hour or two to chill and harden. Then, break the bark into smaller pieces, and store in a ziploc bag.

How Long Does Saltine Toffee Crack Last?

We have kept ours in the refrigerator for 4-5 days just fine. Then, we can pull it out whenever we want to snack on some. I also am a weirdo who loves cold candy so this is perfect, to me.

This “crack” saltine toffee candy has quickly become one of my favorite treats to make, so don’t be surprised if you find variations for every holiday on my site soon. It is so good! We have loved it with milk chocolate and white chocolate, you really can’t go wrong.
