Frequently Asked Questions
What is Christmas Crack?
It’s such a clever play on words because crackers are made with crackers, which crumble into delicious crumbs! A sweet caramel toffee layer is baked on a saltine cracker and then topped with chocolate chips that melt into a beautiful layer of chocolate. Add Christmas sprinkles for more pizzazz in every bite!
Are saltine crackers vegan?
Saltine crackers are vegan because they are made with flour, baking soda, salt and other animal-free ingredients. It’s always a good idea to look at the ingredients because some brands may use different ingredients, but in general, saltines are fine for vegetarians to eat.
Make vegan gluten-free Christmas crackers by substituting gluten-free saltine crackers.
Here are some favorite toppings to add to your vegan Christmas crackers:
- Sprinkles add a nice festive touch
- Melted vegan white chocolate chips

- Chopped dried fruit, such as dried cranberries
