Salted Caramel Cracker

Salted Caramel Cracker Bites are a delightful and easy-to-make sweet treat that combines the rich flavors of caramel with the crunchiness of crackers. Here’s a simple recipe for making Salted Caramel Cracker Bites:


  • Saltine crackers (enough to cover a baking sheet)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Sea salt for sprinkling


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Arrange Crackers:

  • Arrange saltine crackers in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Make sure the entire surface is covered.

3. Prepare Caramel Sauce:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar. Stir continuously until the mixture comes to a boil. Let it boil for about 3-4 minutes without stirring.

4. Add Vanilla Extract:

  • Remove the caramel mixture from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

5. Pour Caramel Over Crackers:

  • Pour the caramel sauce evenly over the arranged saltine crackers, making sure to cover them completely.

6. Bake:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the caramel becomes bubbly and slightly darker.

7. Add Chocolate Chips:

  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the hot caramel-covered crackers.

8. Let the Chocolate Melt:

  • Let the chocolate chips sit for a couple of minutes to soften. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the caramel layer.

9. Sprinkle with Sea Salt:

  • While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle the top with sea salt to add a delightful contrast to the sweetness.

10. Cool and Break Into Pieces:

  • Allow the Salted Caramel Cracker Bites to cool completely. Once cooled, break them into bite-sized pieces.

11. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve these delicious treats as a sweet and salty snack. They can be enjoyed immediately or stored in an airtight container for later.

These Salted Caramel Cracker Bites are a perfect combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy, making them a great treat for parties, gatherings, or any time you crave a delightful snack.
