Halloween Crack – Saltine Cracker Candy

Halloween Crack

In my family, we like to do A LOT of baking around the holidays. One of our favorite Christmas recipes is Christmas Crack. It is a sweet and salty treat made with saltine crackers topped with a caramelized mixture and then chocolate. You let the whole thing harden and then CRACK it before enjoying. I decided to take that treat and put a different spin on it to create Halloween Crack. This is a great treat for any Halloween party or just to enjoy at home. Try it out today!

Here are some tips for making my Halloween Crack:

  • You can really top this with anything you would like! Nuts, marshmallows or any color sprinkles work great. You could even crush up some of your favorite candy bars and use those!
  • This keeps for up to a week in an airtight container on the counter or even longer in the fridge. You could also freeze it to enjoy later.
  • Be careful when adding the vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture. You will want to allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding the vanilla as it could pop if it is too hot.
