Peanut Butter Ritz Bits Toffee

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

Preheat & Prepare

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  3. 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

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. Add the brown sugar to the melted butter, stirring to combine.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer.
  4. Continue to cook the mixture, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes until the mixture is thickened and has a toffee-like consistency.

Bake

  1. Pour the toffee mixture over the Ritz Bits, spreading it with a spatula to cover them evenly.
  2. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes, or until the toffee is bubbly all over.

Add Chocolate

  1. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the toffee.
  2. 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.

Add Toppings

  1. If you’re using optional toppings, sprinkle them over the chocolate layer now.

Chill

  1. 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

  1. Once set, remove the toffee from the fridge. Lift the foil or parchment paper to remove the toffee from the baking sheet.
  2. Break the toffee into pieces using your hands or cut it with a knife into uniform squares or shards.

Serve and Store

  1. 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.

Enjoy your homemade Peanut Butter Ritz Bits Toffee! It’s perfect for a sweet snack, a unique treat for gatherings, or as a homemade gift for friends and family.
