How to make Graham Cracker Toffee Bars:
Made without chocolate, these easy toffee bars are a lot like "Graham Cracker Pecan Brittle." The caramel and nut combination forms a buttery, firm layer on top of the toasted graham crackers for the ultimate indulgent treat!
You'll need: graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, and chopped pecans. So simple!
First, line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray (this makes clean up easy). Arrange the graham crackers in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
Next, melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Then add the brown sugar and pecans.
Boil the sauce for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until a thick, creamy caramel forms.
Pour the buttery caramel sauce over the graham crackers.
Spread the sauce evenly (using a spatula). This doesn't have to be perfect, because the caramel will continue to spread slightly as the bars bake in the oven.
Pop the tray into a 350-degree F oven for 10 minutes. The sauce will bubble up while they bake, but don't worry -- it will firm up as the bars cool.
How to Store Graham Cracker Toffee:
Make this easy Graham Cracker Toffee Crack ahead of time and store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Just try to keep your hands out of the box until it's time to enjoy!
These bars make a great afternoon treat with a cup of tea, or a delicious homemade holiday gift to share with friends, family, and teachers.
