Peppermint Saltine Toffee

Christmas Crack

Is a simple salty sweet treat that is down right addicting. Saltine crackers coated with caramel and chocolate and topped with minty candies to bring in the Christmas flavor. After on bite you won’t be able to put them down.

This is how excited I get when Christmas Crack Season comes around.

This is how I look while eating the Christmas Crack.

This is the face I make when some one asks me to share the Christmas Crack.

This is how I look 10 minutes after all the Christmas Crack is gone – still trying to savor the flavor.

Needless to say this stuff is addictive. I am not usually an advocate for addictive substances but this is the one I will proudly proclaim “CRACK IS NOT WHACK”! At least in the case of this Christmas Crack which will have you fiening for bit after bite.
