Saltine Coffee Toffee

One week to go. That’s it. I can’t believe how fast this holiday season has gone. Have you done all of your shopping yet? If you are still looking for that last minute gift consider putting together a gift basket for those remaining on your list. A gift basket that has this Saltine Coffee Toffee at the center, of course.

One of my favorite gifts to give has always been a basket of treats along with the recipe and all non-perishable ingredients you need to make those treats. For example, I might give a basket with a batch of our family’s favorite fudge, the chocolate, the marshmallows, the sweetened condensed milk and the recipe to go right along with it. Using this formula a Saltine Coffee Toffee gift basket would be not only super easy, but I’m guessing pretty well received. I mean seriously, Saltine. Coffee. Toffee.

Guys, it’s delicious.

Coffee and sweets is always a winning combination, so when the nice people at Dunkin’ Donuts® contacted me asking me to showcase their coffee I just knew I had to make some kind of Christmas treat with it.

I was immediately intrigued by the Dunkin’ Donuts® Bakery Series when I found it at my local Walmart. Particularly, the Caramel Coffee Cake. That sounded like dessert in a cup and obviously I am all for that.

Once home I decided that I wanted to make a quick and easy holiday treat that I happened to already have all the ingredients for: Saltine Toffee. I am all for tradition, but this time I decided to do a coffee twist and add a little brewed Dunkin’ Donuts® Caramel Coffee Cake Coffee to the mix.

Verdict: My new obsession.

Besides being beyond easy to make, this Saltine Coffee Toffee is down right addicting. The crunchiness of the saltines, the sweet caramel, the chocolate and just a hint of coffee. I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing.

And hey, if you give your friends, family or neighbors a gift basket with a batch of this Saltine Coffee Toffee, a copy of the recipe and the ingredients to make it, they just might make it for you. Which, of course, would be a total win.
