Commonly referred to as Christmas Crack, at our house. This toffee is buttery, salty, and sweet. Pretzels and peanuts combine for the bottom layer; then a rich toffee layer, and finally – topped with semi- sweet chocolate. OMG! You have to try these!Print
Buttery and salty toffee topped with crunchy pretzels and chocolate.
8 oz pretzels, broken up into little pieces
1/4 cup (or more) peanuts, crushed
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup (8 ounces) butter
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375*. Line a cookie sheet with foil.
Sprinkle the broken pretzels and peanuts over the foil in a layer, essentially the crust.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and sugar together over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, for 2-3
minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the hot mixture over the pretzel/peanut
Place in the oven and bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the

spatula. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and additional crushed peanuts. Let cool completely and then break
into serving pieces.
