Graham Cracker Toffee- Brickle Bars

I had a friend coming over for coffee at lunch today, and having no baked goods in the house, this is what I made! These only take 10-13 minutes to cook, and in less than 20 minutes I had a very yummy treat to put out for us.

Unfortunately she only ate one, now I have about 3 dozen more to eat. Good thing there are plenty of people who happily take extra treats off my hands!

How to make Brickle Bars (Graham Cracker Toffee):

  • 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.
  • In a small saucepan, bring your butter and sugar to a full rolling boil. Pour over crackers. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  • 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.
  • Melt chocolate according to package, spread over toffee. Allow to set and cool (about 15 minutes).

Brickle Bars, Graham Cracker Toffee

What tools do you need to make cracker toffee:

  • A large baking sheet, approximately 15×10-1-inch. Make sure it has the 1 inch sides, so your gooey caramel doesn’t drip into your oven! Our family calls this a jelly roll pan!
  • I use this small serve spatula to remove the toffee from the sheet pan.
  • Parchment paper. Do not skip this step or you won’t be able to remove your crackers from the pan. You could use foil as well, but I don’t like that it will sometimes rip. I buy my parchment paper in bulk either on amazon or at Sam’s/Costco.

Brickle Bars recipe:

Brickle Bars

Yield: about 40

Prep Time:10 minutes

Cook Time:12 minutes

Nobody will guess that this sweet toffee starts with graham crackers. Brickle Bars are the next best thing to homemade candy!


  • 12 full size graham cracker, broken into fourths
  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup semi-sweet morsels, melted


  1. Break grahams into fourths. Line 15x10x1inch pan with crackers. Pan melt butter and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, remove immediately and pour over crackers. Sprinkle with nuts.
  2. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to parchment paper. The best way to do this is using two butter knives, or a small spatula. Scoop each graham cracker individually and transfer to parchment.

  4. Spread melted chocolate over each brickle bar. Allow to set. Store in airtight container.
