Saltine cracker bark topped with a rich toffee flavor and chocolate topped with chopped nuts. These Butter Brickle Cookies are better than Almond Roca Candy!
Saltine Cracker Bark
I never questioned the name of these basic saltine cracker bark treats.
See I’ve always called these Butter Brickle “Cookies” but as I wrote up the recipe, I started to rethink the title of these delicious morsels!
Once you look at the recipe you’ll notice that here isn’t any flour or eggs in this recipe.
Shouldn’t cookies have flour at least in them?
Maybe they should be renamed to Butter Brickle Candy or Bar. They taste like the buttery crunchy toffee that’s in the middle of Almond Roca Candies, except the candy layer is thinner.
There is also a layer of crackers, giving each slice a sturdy and tasty base like a cookie.
Once everything is set, you break them up in pieces like a bar. Hmmm, dilemma!
After you make these, tell me what you think and fill in the blank, Butter Brittle ______(bar, cookie, candy) or keep the name saltine crack bark?!
Easy Recipe For Gift Giving
Saltine cracker bark is always the first to go when I serve them on a platter with different cookies.
They’re easy to make, darn tasty, and make a lovely gift!
Plan on making a couple of batches though because your family is sure to devour them.
Fair warning…if you don’t take my recommendation your family might get a little possessive over these goodies, and may not want to share!!
Alan is used to seeing me pack up treats to distribute to my co-workers, but when he saw me packing these up, he said, “Those are for US!”
Lol I think he really likes these! haha
Special thanks to my sis-in-law, Kathy for sending me a photo of her typewritten recipe via text!
Gosh, you just gotta love technology in situations like these! My copy vanished along with my Mexican Wedding Cookie recipe!
Recipe resurrected!! Hurray!!
I think I’ll just leave the title alone! Once you make these, everyone will be calling them YUM 🙂
