Sweet Goodness

Today I want to share a recipe that has become a little holiday tradition at our house. We call it sweet goodness, but you might know it by cracker toffee. Either way, it's magnificent.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Club Crackers
  • 2 sticks of Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Chopped Pecans(optional)
Preheat oven to 375°.

Line cookie sheet with tin foil and line crackers on sheet:

Melt butter, add brown sugar and baking soda, stir until mixed.

Pour butter mixture over crackers and bake for 8 minutes.

Remove from oven and pour on chocolate chips and nuts. I always like to choose a variety of chocolate chips(white, semi-sweet, swirl, etc) to add more visual interest:

Let stand for 2 minutes, place in refrigerator for 3 hours.

Break into pieces and serve...or eat it all yourself, you decide!


  1. Um yeah, you just made me super hungry! Thanks for that :)

  2. Oh my oh my! I really don't know if these would make it to the table in my house!

  3. Oh yeah, those are good Melynda. Didn't Krench call them "Sweet Nasties" once? lol Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm going to make them!

  4. Haha...yup! I believe it was then followed by "Sweet good and nasty"

  7. We made sweet-goodness this year for teacher presents....many people have now asked for the recipe. Selah and Kaiyah also had fun
    "helping". Anyway, if you go back to that yarn store you can get me some good yarn to make the Breckenridge Cowl... See you soon, Amanda

  10. OMG THIS LOOKS SOOOOO Awesome! I hope you don't mind, I reposted your recipe over on my blog, with links to your original. I love sweet plus salty and HATE overly sweet - so I'm looking forward to trying it out sometime before I run out of time being able to blame the holidays on eating whatever I want to!

  11. Haha...amy beth, you think the same way I do about holiday eating- hurry, after next week you can't eat like this anymore!
