Barking Crackers is a simple candy made with soda crackers and chocolate that is similar to a traditional toffee or bark recipe. Be sure to check the bottom of the recipe for complete instructions for a Passover version of this recipe.


  • 40 soda crackers*
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate (or butterscotch chips)
  • Optional: 1 cup finely chopped nuts and toasted

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Line a jelly roll (15 x 10-inches with sides) pan with foil and grease lightly. Completely line pan with crackers.

  3. Boil butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes. Stirring constantly. Pour mixture over crackers.

  4. Bake for 5 minutes and remove from the oven.

  5. Sprinkle chips over pan. Let chips soften so they can be evenly spread. Sprinkle nuts over top.

  6. Refrigerate for 1 hour and then break apart into bite-sized pieces. Store these in the refrigerator.

For Passover

Just substitute 6 pieces of Matzo crackers for the soda crackers.
