As far as cracker candy recipes go, Brickle Crunch is one of the best! Between the buttery layer we call brickle, and the chocolatey layer that goes on top, we can't decide which layer is the one that makes us smile the most!

What You'll Need

  • 35 saltine crackers (about 1 sleeve from a 16-ounce box)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (1 six-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a 10- x 15- inch cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Lay out crackers on cookie sheet, packing tightly.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter, then add sugar and boil, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until sugar is completely dissolved. Immediately pour mixture over crackers and bake 7 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate and peanut butter morsels over crackers, return to oven for 1 minute. Remove and evenly spread chocolate.
  5. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, then break into pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


This is great topped with chopped nuts or flaked coconut; just sprinkle either on top before refrigerating. It's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I remember seeing a recipe that was really similar to this, but I think they called it Christmas Crack, and i don't think it had any peanut butter chips in it. But, I forgot to bookmark it. This seems close enough though, and based on the comments it turns out really good, so I believe I will try it.

I found this recipe on a box of 99cent Kroger brand saltines...first year I made it, I had to take 4 batches to work...I always put colored sprinkles on 1/2 of it, because not everybody can eat nuts...!--make it without the pnutbutter chips, tho.

can this be made using graham crackers?

This recipe NEVER lasts very long! A real treat that's easy to make. Love this!!

Interesting and sounds good, ... however, as a diabetic for many years, I don't think my body could handle the amount of sugar in a single piece of this recipe!!

A.K.A. cracker candy. Be sure to get the ones with the salted tops! Otherwise , sprinkle a bit of salt (1/2 ts. Or so) over the crackers

Love all the no bake candy and cookie recipes! They are so easy to make and can do them quickly.

This is a quick candy / dessert to make for many activities that you might need something different but easy to make. I have also made this recipe with brown sugar instead of the regular sugar. Thanks !!!!
