Gluten Free Christmas Crack

Keep scrolling for the recipe…

There are very few recipes that scream “HOLIDAYS” like Christmas Crack! I remember growing up that my favorite part of the holidays were the parties. Playing with cousins, swapping gifts, and of course the food were all things I looked forward to every year. And every year someone would make Christmas Crack! Of course when I went gluten free, I couldn’t have it anymore, so I decided to make my own version using gluten free crackers and dairy free chocolate!

What is Christmas Crack?

Christmas Crack very simply put is the best thing ever! Haha maybe not, but it is definitely addicting! You start with a row of crackers on a baking sheet, then pour a toffee mixture on top. Next you bake it in the oven until the toffee is hardened and chewy. Lastly you add chocolate chips on top until they melt. And BOOM… The highlight of your Christmas season!

Lay your crackers in a row


The possibilities are endless! I topped mine with pieces of peppermint, but feel free to get creative! I have seen people top theirs with candy, nuts, pretzels, etc. The world is your oyster!

Ideas and Combinations:

  • M&Ms
  • Pretzels with Sea Salt
  • Peppermint pieces
  • Crushed cookies
  • Peanuts

Now what you’ve been waiting for…
