The only thing more satisfying than a decadent dessert is a dessert that combines both salty and sweet tastes. This recipe for 5-Layer Cracker Toffee Bars is unexpectedly easy to make, and the resulting bars are ridiculously tasty. A salty crust made from crushed Ritz crackers is topped with chocolate, toasted pecans, toffee bits, and shredded coconut before being baked until golden brown. You won't be able to stop after just one bite of these crumbly, gooey 5-layer bars.

Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13 inch baking dish


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 sleeves Ritz Crackers, crushed
  • 1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup shredded coconut, toasted

  2. Combine crushed crackers with melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 3-5 minutes.

  3. After the crust has cooled slightly, top with the remaining ingredients in even layers in the following order: chocolate chips, chopped pecans, toffee bits, toasted coconut.

Prime Publishing Marketing Analyst I tried this recipe in the Test Kitchen- delicious! These are very rich and satisfy a sweet tooth.

This recipe makes a very thick, crumbly crust. If desired, you may decrease the amount of cracker crumbs from three sleeves to two.
