This easy Saltine Toffee recipe uses saltine crackers and a few common ingredients to make an uncommonly good candy that’s sweet, salty, crunchy, and chocolatey. You can make it more gourmet by adding chopped nuts or dried fruit to the top, or adding swirls of white or milk chocolate.

8. Cashew White Chocolate Toffee

Cashew White Chocolate Toffee has a deep, dark burnt sugar taste that complements the salty cashews and sweet white chocolate. The brown sugar and the high cooking temperature give the toffee a smoky, rich flavor that’s much deeper than traditional toffees.
