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 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).

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.

  • 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

    I want to try these – they look really good. Could I just leave the bars whole and break them apart after they have cooled?

  6. jan

    Couldn’t you just line the baking sheet with parchment to begin with? That way you don’t need to transfer them.

    Would it work to use margarine for this recipe?

  11. You’re making a lot of extra work for yourself.  It was be much easier to cover a sided cookie sheet with foil, spray with non stick cooking spray, and then proceed with your recipe through the baking part.  When they come out of the oven, sprinkle with the chocolate chips so they melt from the heat of the bars.  Spread the melted chocolate chips, and then let all cool.  The entire sheet will lift off the foil.  Then break they into rectangles, or abstract  shapes.  I like the looks of yours better than spreading the melted chocolate chips, so when the bars are cool, drizzle with the melted chocolate in a pastry bag.  Then break into rectangles, squares, etc.  

  12. I should have said, “It would be much easier to……..”

    I leave grahams whole, place directly on sprayed cookie sheet, use brown sugar, and leave in oven exactly 7 min. before taking out and shaking choco chips out evenly, spreading with silicone spatula, and sprinkling walnuts (cheaper) on 1/2.  Cool, use metal spatula to lift from underside which breaks them into variety of shapes. Easy.

    I’ve yet to understand why people read a recipe and then change it , after you (aimee) think of all these great recipe’s and give to us, so, generously. boggles my mind?

  15. amazing bars, great dessert. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

  16. Um I so relate to ” Unfortunately she only ate one, now I have about 3 dozen more to eat. ” But these are definitely not the worst thing to eat!! Love all the textures/ flavors!!

  17. I am so glad I don’t have any graham crackers in this house. At least my Dr. is. I would be in the kitchen at this moment making these. But I do need to go o the grocery tomorrow. Oh my!! LOL.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

    These are delicious. To the person who said theirs was soggy, mine were soggy but once cooled they crisped up. I first thought I did something wrong but once cooled were ok. Now I don’t know. Maybe weren’t right soggy wise at first but then were ok? Turned out delicious when all said and done. 🙂 My sister-in-law counting calories and asked how many calories. Any idea? Thanks for great recipe
