Christmas Crack


  • 16 oz pretzel sticks
  • 20 oz chopped chocolate
  • 2 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles


  • Lay pretzels flat on a 1/2 sheet pan.
  • Boil butter and sugar until it reaches 298 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • Pour toffee over pretzels and spread smooth with an offset spatula.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
  • Then pour chocolate over the toffee and smooth out with an offset spatula.
  • shake sprinkles on top of the chocolate.
  • Let the chocolate and toffee cool completely before cutting. You can put the tray in the fridge to set it up faster if you are in a hurry.
  • Cut or break apart toffee and get everyone addicted to this, it will only take one piece I'm sure!


I used a block of chocolate that is for candy making, I find it doesn't have a waxy coating like chocolate chips and tempers easily, so when the toffee is set up, the chocolate will no be soft at room temperature.

  1. With a name like “Christmas Crack” I HAD to read this post, Diane. You totally delivered – this sounds ridiculously delicious and addictive. I laughed at your version of Its The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – preach it, girl! Ain’t that the truth.

  2. I laughed a little at your version of the song. Not because I find it funny but because I can relate. 🙂 Making memories for sure!

    I’m sure this isn’t called called Christmas crack for no reason. I’d kinda like to give it a try. I hope you are having a good week. 🙂
