Ingredients & Supplies
Here are the things you need to grab to make this white chocolate recipe:
- 10×15 rimmed baking sheet
- baking/cooking spray
- dark brown sugar
- white chocolate chips
- kosher salt
- salted cashews
- dried fruit: apricots, cherries, cranberries
10×15 Rimmed Baking Sheet
You will want to make sure you have a 10×15 rimmed baking sheet for this recipe and that you fill it completely with saltine crackers. This will ensure the crackers do not “float” apart during the baking process.
In this recipe I use dried apricots, dried cherries, and dried cranberries because they are the flavors I love. However, if there is another dried fruit you love, go ahead and include it or make your own combo all together! Just plan on 1 cup of dried fruit.
Making White Chocolate Toffee Step By Step
Start by covering a 10×15 baking sheet with foil and coating in a nonstick baking spray. Fill the sheet pan up with saltine crackers, from edge to edge!
Make the stove top toffee and then pour it over the crackers. Smooth it out with a wooden spoon or spatula.
Bake for 7 minutes.
Top the hot saltine toffee crackers with a sprinkle of kosher salt and the white chocolate chips. Let them sit for about 2 minutes and then spread with a spatula .
Top with cashews and dried fruit, pressing in slightly. Pop in the fridge to help the white chocolate set up. Break apart in serving sized pieces and enjoy!
