  • Chocolate chips- Use a good quality brand. You want your toffee to TASTE good.
  • Sugar- you’ll need granulated sugar for todays recipe!
  • Pecans- no need to toast the pecans, since we’ll be putting them on top and baking.

Step by Step Instructions

Prep the Crackers. Line your sheet pan with parchment paper or foil. Break your graham crackers into fourths, along their natural perforated marks. Line your sheet pan with crackers.

PRO TIP: Don’t separate your crackers. Just lay them down. Once the toffee has cooled, crack into pieces.

Make the sugar mixture. In a small saucepan, bring your butter and sugar to a full rolling boil. Pour over crackers. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Bake. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately use a small spatula to transfer hot toffee to a piece of parchment paper on the counter.

Garnish. Melt chocolate according to package, spread over toffee. Allow to set and cool (about 15 minutes).
