M&M Christmas Cracker Toffee

  • Author:


  • Box of Ritz crackers
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 chocolate chips or dark chocolate squares
  • 1/2 cup M&M Holiday edition


  1. Preheat your oven to 425F
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or tin foil to protect it from the sticky caramel layer. (This is one recipe I don’t use my silicone baking mat for – it’s way too hard to clean up!)
  3. Spread the crackers to completely cover the bottom of the baking tray.
  4. Combine the sugar and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, only giving a single good stir or whisk at the end.
  5. Pour the caramel mixture over the crackers and spread evenly with an offset spatula.
  6. Stick the baking tray in the oven for 5 minutes until the caramel is bubbly and thick.
  7. Meanwhile, break up the chocolate pieces and measure out your M&Ms.
  8. Sprinkle the chocolate overtop of the caramel layer and pop it back in the oven.
  9. Bake for an additional 2-2 minutes until the chocolate is completely melted.
  10. Spread the chocolate with an offset spatula.
  11. Sprinkle the M&Ms overtop of the wet chocolate.
  12. Place the whole thing in the fridge until the Christmas Cracker Toffee cools & hardens so that you can “crack” it into single serving pieces.
