- 1 box Ritz Bits Peanut Butter Crackers
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips
- Optional toppings: crushed nuts, sea salt, or sprinkles
Preheat & Prepare
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- Arrange the Peanut Butter Ritz Bits in a single layer on the baking sheet. You can place them close together since they won’t expand.
Make the Toffee
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Add the brown sugar to the melted butter, stirring to combine.
- Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer.
- Continue to cook the mixture, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes until the mixture is thickened and has a toffee-like consistency.
- Pour the toffee mixture over the Ritz Bits, spreading it with a spatula to cover them evenly.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes, or until the toffee is bubbly all over.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the toffee.
- Let the chocolate chips sit for a few minutes to melt, then spread the melted chocolate over the toffee with a knife or the back of a spoon.
- If you’re using optional toppings, sprinkle them over the chocolate layer now.
- Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chill until the toffee and chocolate are set, which usually takes about 1-2 hours.
Break into Pieces
- Once set, remove the toffee from the fridge. Lift the foil or parchment paper to remove the toffee from the baking sheet.
- Break the toffee into pieces using your hands or cut it with a knife into uniform squares or shards.
Serve and Store
- Serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for longer shelf life. If stored in the fridge, let it sit out for a few minutes before serving to take the chill off.
