Sugary sweets and the holidays go hand in hand, and some desserts are decidedly more festive than others. Have you ever noticed how we only eat certain foods during certain seasons? Toffee is one of those holiday-specific desserts we tend to reserve for year-end, despite it being so delicious! If you don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen this year, but still want to gift some tasty treats to family and friends, check out these easy toffee recipes that are sure to be a hit.
1. Ritz Cracker Toffee
You type in “easy toffee” and the Ritz Cracker Toffee recipe is the first thing to come up on Pinterest. And that’s because it’s so easy and delicious. Perfect for that little extra gift, Ritz crackers are covered in a melted butter and brown sugar mixture (yep, that’s toffee for you!) and then another layer of chocolate. You can add extra toppings if you’d like, or just revel in the fact that it only took 4 ingredients to whip up this festive treat.

2. Saltine Toffee
Personally, when I think of easy toffee, this saltine version always comes to mind. Crispy crackers, laden with tons of sugary goodness just sounds like something I can sit down and devour! It doesn’t differ that much from the Ritz cracker version, except for the different cracker of course, but is great if you prefer a saltine over a Ritz.

6. Almond Butter Toffee
Don’t be fooled by the name of this recipe, it’s definitely not healthy because of “almond butter.” Instead, it uses tons of butter that are mixed with almonds, and then boiled into toffee.
