Pecan Pie Christmas Crack Toffee

Pecan Pie Christmas Crack Toffee is a twist on traditional cracker toffee, made with a pecan pie topping over saltine crackers for a perfect sweet and salty treat! It is a super simple recipe for an impressive dessert!

I don't know about you, but as soon as the holiday season strikes, I am baking up a storm. Thanksgiving pies lead into Christmas candies and cookies. This pecan pie Christmas crack is a perfect combination of the two. Its a mash up of pecan pie and Christmas cracker toffee. I added pecans to the toffee to make it more like these amazing pecan pie bars. This is a must make Christmas candy this year!

Hi Friends, its Aimee from Like Mother Like Daughter here again for my monthly contributor post! I hope you love this cracker toffee as much as I do!

Because this toffee starts with saltine crackers, it makes it a perfectly sweet and salty treat. The crackers give the toffee the perfect crunch, and saltiness, that pairs perfectly with the sweet homemade toffee and drizzled chocolate. You can leave the chocolate off, if you prefer to have more of the traditional pecan pie flavor, but in my opinion chocolate makes everything better!

After you drizzle the chocolate on the top you can sprinkle the top with red, white, and green, or other Christmas sprinkles to make the candy extra festive.

I promise its a treat that will be loved by all! Perfect for sharing with your neighbors this holiday season, or enjoying at home, or taking to a Christmas party!


  • Have all your ingredients prepared beforehand. If you need to chop your pecans, do that first, have the chocolate chips ready in a bowl for when they are needed, and sprinkles ready for sprinkling.
  • Instead of sprinkles you could also top your toffee with festive m&ms, or drizzle some red, and green candy melts on top!
  • I recommend using a silicone liner, but if you don't have one you can use parchment, or heavily greased foil. This keeps the treat from sticking to the pan and makes it easy to work with and easy clean up!


  • Silpat mat - I use these mats for everything. They are great for flash freezing, rolling out dough and naturally for baking.
  • Christmas sprinkles - we love sprinkes of every kind in our house but these are especially fun on this dessert!
