Toffee Crumbles

Toffee Crumbles are a quick, easy and delicious topping for ice cream, cakes and more! Made in 15 minutes with only 3 ingredients, this toffee recipe adds a buttery, soft crunch to all your favorite desserts.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 box of unsalted saltines or graham crackers
  • 2 sticks of butter ((I'd go with unsalted))
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (be sure to use a half size baking sheet, approx 13 x 18 inches that has a lip/edge). Lightly grease with butter or a small amount of vegetable oil.
  3. Lay out your crackers on the baking sheet in tight rows, ensuring to cover the entire sheet.
  4. In a medium pot, heat up the sugar and butter on medium heat until fully melted and it comes to a boil. Once you see the mixture boiling, remove from the heat.
  5. Pour the boiling butter/sugar mixture over the crackers. Carefully spread the mixture over each cracker evenly.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the crackers are a medium golden brown.
  7. The crackers will likely shift around due to the candy bubbling in the oven. Once removed from the oven, take a knife or fork to gently get the crackers back in line. The toffee will begin to harden up, so be sure to do this quickly!
  8. Allow to fully cool.
  9. Once fully cooled and hardened, break toffee into pieces. Place in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin, or pulse a couple of times in a food processor.
