Easter Crack Candy

 

Easter is my favorite holiday of the year.  I go all out for Easter. For over 20 years, I have hosted Easter at my house.  For at least the last 10 years, I have served this delicious Easter crack. Crack candy has been around forever! I have just taken it one giant step further by adding all the festive chocolate & sprinkle colors.

Holiday Toffee

 

I tried Christmas crack for the first time this year and I must admit it was love at first bite.  I have made it my own personal mission to create a version for every holiday. Of course, the taste and recipe are the same, I have just switched up the color chocolate and decorations in honor of Easter. 

 

I love working with chocolate and consider each piece of bark and crack that I create to be a work of art.  Find your inner Picasso and join me in the fun.

Guide to Melting chocolate:

Instant Pot can be used to melt your chocolate! If you want to learn how to melt chocolate in the Instant Pot, check out my post. It is crazy simple to do!

 

In a microwave-safe container, microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30-second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

Can I Use Margarine Instead Of Butter

For this recipe, you need to use real butter. Margarine is made different so as it melts down it will become super greasy and not work properly. 

 

An unsalted butter works great for this recipe. 

 

How to Store Saltine Cracker Toffee

Once your saltine cracker toffee is set up you can break it apart and place it in a sealable bag or airtight container.

This will store for around 7-10 days. It is best when you eat within the first few days, but it does have a decent store life.

Easter Crack

Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

A delicious candy that is made with just butter, brown sugar, saltine crackers and chocolate.  

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large cookie try with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray. Line saltines up neatly in rows.
  2. In a medium sized pot, melt your butter and brown sugar. Once butter is melted down, bring to a boil. Continue to stir the entire time and boil for about 2 minutes. It will look gorgeous and bubbly.
  3. Pour over the top of the saltines. Gently spread across the saltines.
  4. Place in oven and bake for about 7 minutes.
  5. While your crack is in the oven, melt your pink & yellow chocolate melts according to the package directions. *Please see the body of the post. I have included my no fail chocolate melting tips.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven, use a spatula to move your crackers back tightly together.
  7. Now sprinkle your white chocolate chips over the saltines. Your hot toffee mixture will melt the chips. I put mine back in the oven for a minute to move the process along. Once your chips are melting, spread across the top evenly with a spatula.
  8. Mix your pink & yellow chocolate into the white chocolate by pouring it over the top in a decorative way. I also like to use a butter knife tip to help combine the colors to my liking.
  9. Quickly decorate with sprinkles that tickle your fancy. The melted chocolate will act as your glue.

Notes

If you are not using your instant pot as a double boiler.... you can melt you chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave.  Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power.  Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon.  You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.
