Graham Cracker Toffee

Okay. This is one recipe from my blog you HAVE to try! It is SO easy, SO simple, SO fast and OH SO good! My neighbor, Faith, gave us this recipe and we are HOOKED!

I could not stop eating these. Everyone who tried them wanted the recipe. The texture, the flavor, the whole recipe is perfection!  I enjoy recipes that my kids can be involved in and this happens to be one of those. My kids love to help me spread the chocolate and sprinkle the pecans on top.

This recipe makes for great gifts, a great finger-food dessert and a tasty snack. You really can’t mess this recipe up! The messier the prettier :)

    I love, love, love these toffees. I made them for my friend for her birthday and she loved them so much she gave them as neighbor gifts that Christmas. I keep extras in the freezer and snack on them straight from the freezer whenever the craving hits (aka all the time). This is one great recipe!

  2. Whoa, girl!!! I do this with saltine crackers and it’s politely called saltine toffee, otherwise known as Christmas Crack, but I can imagine your graham cracker toffee is highly addictive and amazing! I am loving this one!!!! Pinned :)

      I’d say digestive biscuit are the closest thing you could use as a substitute! Something like McVitie’s if you have them…

      Same problem in Korea. I also find digestive biscuits work really well instead of graham crackers though this recipe is also delicious on pecan cookies.

      i just made my first batch which are cooling in the refrigerator, can’t wait to taste them. it was very easy to make. thanks, love your web site!

      Helen, i just used the squares of graham crackers right out of the box and laid them next to each other till the baking sheet was full. hope that helps.

    Thanks for reposting this recipe. I haven’t been watching your posts for very long, and so when I saw this photo I got really excited. I used to beg to make them as a kid at my grandma’s house. I had the recipe when I left for college but lost along the way. I have sincerely searched for it but never found this exact one. Now I’ll put it in my recipe box again and probably make them much too often. They are so easy and quick, they taste like they take a lot of time and work. Thanks again!

    You can also use Saltines instead of graham crackers! This will give you the amazingly delicious combo of both sweet and salty!

    hey Nikki, i like this recipe, ( cooled off enough to taste) but could you suggest a way to tone down the sugar in without ruining it? I found it to be VERY sweet. * i have been cutting back on sugar in my diet and everyday eating and I found the more I cut back the more I am aware of how overly sweet things really are. thank you in advance. :)

    I love these. I have been making these for 25 years. The recipe was published in “Enquirer”. It was a recipe used in a bed and breakfast owned by Sally Jessy Raphael. I would make these for cookie exchanges at Christmas time. It was always a big hit.

      sorry for the confusion. Its milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips, up to you and your personal preference :)

    • Chef in Training

      You need to bake it for 8 minutes after pouring the butter/brown sugar mixture over the top. It was kind of hidden in there so I tried to clarify it better in the recipe. Hopefully this helps you out :) Sorry for the confusion.

    I can’t wait to make these! Just curious – cause I really am not good at this, but if a person is eating gluten free is this recipe acceptable?? I am never sure what is gluten!!!

  8. Vicki

    you could change from chocolate chips to white chocolate or butterscotch….I am going to do white chocolate for Christmas….

  9. Jen

    I made this recipe the other day and everyone loved it! It was so easy to make and a delicious snack!! The chocolate chips didn’t melt very well to spread but still turned out perfectly! Thanks for posting :)

    I made these yesterday and everyone loved them. They are dangerously good and so simple. I will definitely make these again. Maybe a double batch!

    What is a graham cracker sheet?
    I have purchased Honey Maid Graham crackers but don’t know how many to use.
    What size cookie sheet should I be using?

  13. Don't understand

    I don’t understand. 6 oz of choc chips didn’t even begin to cover the crackers and toffee. No one else has said anything about this. Can you please either update or explain.
