There's something wonderfully nostalgic about cereal-based desserts. While Kix was a favorite cereal in our house growing up, I had never thought of turning it into a dessert. Luckily my well-worn copy of Betty Crocker's Cooky Book, had a recipe for Kix Toffee among the "Company-Best Cookies" recipes. We won't tell your "company" that this recipe is simple. Stupidly simple and really good.

All you need is butter, brown sugar, Kix, vanilla, a pinch of salt, and some chocolate to make this crispy, crunchy cereal-based version of my perennial holiday favorite Chocolate Crack.
Why stop at regular 'crack' when, with a few little tweaks, you can jazz it up for the holiday? For each of these recipes, you'll add approximately one to one and a half cups of the coarsely chopped topping of your choice to the basic Matzoh Crack recipe. Mix, match and have fun!
A twist on the saltine cracker candy, Matzoh Crack offers a great dessert base to get creative with flavors.
