Need a homemade food gift for the holidays? Check our our insanely easy Rosemary Cracker Toffee Bars recipe! I like sweets, don’t get me wrong, but I do find my taste changing as I get older. I like things a little less sugary than I used to, and if you can throw in a bit of savory into my treats, I’m one happy camper. Which is why I put a twist on these iconic holiday toffee bars and used buttery rosemary crackers.

Wait…rosemary crackers? Don’t judge until you try. The sweet, salty and just a little bit savory crunch of these Rosemary Cracker Toffee Bars is utterly addicting!

The process to make these bars couldn’t be easier. Place the crackers on a sheet pan, cover with melted butter and sugar, bake, melt chocolate on top of toffee crackers and sprinkle with sea salt. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool enough to cut. Slice them generously or into mini pieces depending on how you plan to use them.

Packaging for a gift? Stack like-sized pieces into a cellophane bag and tie with a pretty ribbon. Serving as nibbles on a buffet? Offer a variety of sizes to fit different appetites. And then watch them disappear…

Tip: I love my offset spatula in recipes like this where even spreading is important. It’s one of those kitchen tools that felt like a splurge when I bought it (a $10 splurge, mind you), but it’s one I find myself reaching for again and again. I have a shorter one, but I’m thinking of adding a longer option to my Christmas list…
