Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine Candy! Yes, Please!!!

I had something completely different planned to share with you today but I learned the hard way (again) that I need to remember some projects need drying time. So, I decided to make this super simple and (here’s the selling point for me) QUICK Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine Candy! Seriously, you’re going to love how easy this is to put together.

The next time you find yourself in a last minute bind (i.e., “mommy, I need to bring treats for class today”), grab this recipe, put on your Willy Wonka magic hat, and become a candy master!

Here’s how to get it done….



  • Saltine Crackers
  • Brown Sugar
  • Butter
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • (optional) nuts of your choice

Step 1: Turn on your oven to 400*.

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with foil and coat lightly with Pam.

IMG_8647Make sure you let this mixture boil! Boiling is what “candies” the liquid.

Step 5: Pour boiling mixture over the top of the saltine crackers.

Step 7: Remove from oven and pour 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup of peanut butter chips over the top of the crackers.


Step 8: Let the candy melt.

Note: You may want to place the cookie sheet back into the warm oven for a few seconds to accelerate melting. Just be sure to leave the door to the oven open so the candy doesn’t burn. Once the candy looks waxy (melted), pull the cookie sheet back out.

Step 9: Once the candy has melted, use a knife or silicone spatula to spread the melted candy evenly over the saltines.

Step 10: Place cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes to cool.

Step 11: Break apart and enjoy!!

I hope you enjoy this quick, simple, and so yummy, treat!
