  • Author: Sep Esmaili


  • 2 Cups white sugar
  • 16 oz unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • candy thermometer (optional)
  • 24 saltine crackers of your choice (I use Stone Ground wheat crackers from Trader Joe’s)
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate (use chips or chop up a bar of good quality chocolate)


  1. Line two 8in baking sheets with wax paper and lay out the crackers on the bottom of the pan. Set the crackers aside.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and butter and place over medium heat. Using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture until the sugar and butter have melted.
  3. Continue to stir the mixture until it comes to a boil (this will take 5-10minutes). Be very careful with the boiling candy, sugar burns are no fun!
  4. Turn the heat down to medium and patiently stir the mixture until it has turned a light to medium brown color (be patient, this could take 20-30minutes). If you have a candy thermometer, you are looking for 305 degrees.
  5. Once the toffee registers 305 degrees CAREFULLY pour the hot toffee over the crackers and use your rubber spatula to spread the toffee evenly over the crackers.
  6. Top the toffee right away with the chocolate so the heat from the toffee can melt the chips.
  7. Use your rubber spatula to spread the chocolate over the toffee in an even layer.
  8. While the chocolate is still wet, top with sea salt and sliced almonds.
  9. Put the tray in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden (about 30 minutes).
  10. Once the chocolate is hardened, break up the bark into pieces and serve on a festive plate.
