A Few Tips to Make White Chocolate Toffe Bark Even Easier
- When melting the white chocolate, I prefer to use my Wilton Candy Melting Pot. It not only makes it easier, it also keeps the chocolate warm so it doesn’t seize up. This way I can start melting the chocolate while I am putting the sugar and butter on the stove to boil. By the time I remove the crackers from the oven, the melted chocolate is ready to go!
- Speaking of white chocolate, it can be a pain to melt as it tends to sieze up a lot easier than other chocolates. To help prevent this, always use a high quality white chocolate and add a tiny bit of coconut oil when melting.
- Last, but not least, here’s the easy-peasy, handy-dandy printable to make White Chocolate Toffee Bark even easier:
New Year's Eve White Chocolate Toffee Bark
- 1 sleeve saltine crackers
- 1 cup unsalted butter cubed
- 1 cup light brown sugar packed
- 2.5 cups white chocolate chips high quality
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup gold holiday sprinkles
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, making sure to fold the foil up the sides of the sheet, too. Spray the foil with a nonstick cooking spray.
- Arrange the crackers SALT SIDE DOWN in a single layer on the baking sheet. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar and melt over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil (about 3-5 minutes), stirring constantly. Immediately pour it over the crackers, and use the back of a spoon or a spatula to spread it evenly.
- Bake for about 3-5 minutes, until the toffee is bubbling all over. Carefully remove the pan from the oven, and place to the side.
- In a double boiler or candy melting pot, melt the white chocolate chips and coconut oil, making sure to stir constantly.
- Pour the melted chocolate over the toffee covered crackers, spreading it as evenly as possible.
- Top with holiday inspired sprinkles.
- Place in the fridge to let chocolate set (about 1.5 to 2 hours). If in a hurry, place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
- Once chocolate has hardened, peel away the foil and break the toffee bark into pieces. Serve or store in an air tight container.
- White Chocolate Toffee bark will stay fresh in airtight container for 1 - 2 weeks.
This sweet and salty toffee bark is simply too delicious to enjoy just once a year, so it’s a good thing the recipe is so versatile! White Chocolate Toffee Bark is easily customized for pretty much any celebration or holiday. All you need are some different colored sprinkles and you’ve got an easy and delicious treat that’s perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Valentine’s Day, Halloween or even the 4th of July!
