  • Break off pieces and enjoy!


  • You can use light or dark brown sugar, it won't make a huge difference.
  • I like using unsalted butter, as the crackers already have a good amount of salt in them.
  • Top with seasonal M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces for additional variations
  • You can also melt chocolate chips separately and pour it over the crackers.
  • Butterscotch chips can be added along with the chocolate chips for an even sweeter touch.
  • Nutritional information does not include optional ingredients
Storage: Store Christmas crack in an airtight container at room temperature for 7-10 days.
