  • Pre-heat oven to 325°F.
  • Line a large jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the saltine crackers on the parchment side-by-side covering the pan.
  • Start melting your chocolate in a double boiler over low heat.
  • In a medium sized pot, melt the butter and sugar over medium-low heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until the butter is melted.
  • Once the butter has melted, turn up the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil for no more than 2.5 to 3 minutes. Stir constantly so your mixture does not burn, it will be very bubbly.
  • Remove pan from heat and pour over saltine crackers. Carefully, but quickly as the toffee hardens fast, spread mixture with a knife, trying to cover all of the crackers.
  • Place pan in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. The toffee will bubbly up again and spread out.
  • Remove pan from oven and let cool for a minute or two.
  • Pour melted chocolate over the top of the toffee and spread it out evenly with a knife.
  • Sprinkle M&M's and candy eyes on top and then place the entire pan in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Once chocolate has hardened break your Halloween Crack into pieces.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.


To save time, heat your chocolate in the microwave:
In a glass bowl, microwave the chocolate for 15 second, removing and stirring each time. After a few rounds, the chocolate will start to melt. Stop when it’s almost fully melted and continue to stir until smooth.
