Holiday Lights Toffee {DIY Holiday Treats}

Ok peeps, I am warning you…you may find yourself licking the screen once you lay your eyes on these fantastic goodie!!

First a disclaimer…

***this treat is highly addictive, EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK***

Every year I make saltine toffee for the holidays you may have heard people refer to this as “Christmas Crack” but we changed it up a bit and with our tweaks we feel it kinda looks like fun & festive holiday lights, plus…”Holiday Lights Toffee” rings a little cuter than “Christmas Crack”.

Perhaps it is our love for all things salty & sweet so we took this popular recipe and kicked it up a tad by substituting pretzels sticks for the saltines, added some color with mini M&M’s (holiday lights) and topped off with a dash of sea salt.  Drooling yet?
