If you love gingersnaps, toffee and white chocolate, you’ll love this Gingersnap Toffee. It’s perfect for Christmas!
I seriously love this time of year. I love the sights, the sounds, the lights and of course all of the Christmas treats that are currently taking over my kitchen. Throughout the rest of the year I am not a huge candy and sweets eater but when Christmas rolls around gimme all the chocolate, cookies and treats. My newest Christmas treat love is this Gingersnap Toffee.
Everyone has probably heard of saltine toffee, AKA Christmas Crack. But I’ve got a new twist for you, this Gingersnap Toffee is out of this world. There is a layer of gingersnaps, buttery toffee, white chocolate and sprinkles. It is is my newest treat obsession.
If you have ever made saltine toffee then you’ll be able to make this gingersnap toffee. It is basically the same concept, except for instead of saltine crackers you’ll be using gingersnaps cookies. For this recipe, you will want to make sure that the gingersnaps are crisp. Soft gingersnaps will not work as well. I used Nabisco Gingersnaps but if you have some of your own homemade lying around, because… Christmas, I’m sure they would work just fine too!
This Gingersnap Toffee does require a bit of time in the fridge. I recommend about two hours. But don’t go much more than that. I put mine in the fridge and then went to do some Christmas shopping for about 3 hours. The toffee was pretty hard at that point but an hour or so on the counter and we were good to go! And by good to go I mean…I ate entirely too much in one sitting.
But hey. It’s Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, this was my view a last week. Seriously, I LOVE this time of year.

Can you freeze or refrigerate this? How long does this last after it’s made in the containers?

Hi Deb! I have never frozen this so I’m not sure, you can refrigerate it if you like but take it out a bit before serving. It will last a couple of days in sealed containers :)

I’ve made something similar with saltines, but those gingersnaps are soooo smart!
MaryNovember 27, 2017 at 8:11 am
Looks wonderful, but wondering if if it would taste okay with semisweet chocolate instead. One family member doesn’t like white chococolate.

This is sure to get everyone in the Holiday Spirit!
