Toffee Crunch Bars

I love holiday baking. Not just one or two batches of cookies; I like to make as many as I can stuff in the fridge. I know it’s excessive, but the holidays are my excuse. I love having the variety around; it’s fun to have all the different kinds! The thing is…it can get expensive. Flour, butter, eggs, chocolate chips, they all add up. Even with coupons, things can be expensive. So, I’ve decided to share with my readers lots of CHEAP holiday treats that still taste great!

Step By Step Instructions for Making Toffee Crunch Bars

butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan. Boil for 1 minute.

Make 2 layers of saltine crackers (or graham crackers) in a pan. I used a 9″x8″ pan. You do not need to grease the pan. The butter will do that for you:)

  1. Yummy, and so frugal! I have made your cheesecake and gummys and we love them. So I cannot wait to make these for my family. Thanks so much.

  2. Valerie: That was my first thought too but after I tried them I realized they didn't need any extra sweetness(for us anyways!) and you can't really tell they are made from saltines:)

  3. My favorite treats! Dangerous to make because I cannot stop eating them. We sprinkle colored jimmies on them for Christmas cuteness, too.

  4. 5 stars
    This is a favorite of mine too! I may or may not have set my friend’s mom’s oven on fire when I made them one time. Thankfully no lasting damage was made!
