Hey there guys and gals! The holiday season is upon us and I have a recipe you MUST make this holiday season. If you like toffee you are going to want to keep reading!
Two years ago I made toffee with saltine crackers and last year I tried it again with graham crackers. It turned out so yummy and it only takes 10 minutes to make. If you have a cookie exchange to go to and you are in a pinch for time, this recipe is quick and easy.
Years ago I used to have a big cookie baking day where my brother and sister would come over and we would make all sorts of cookies and candies for Christmas. Then I had kids… and more kids… until I had four kids. Now with four kids ages 2 to 8 I stick with a batch of cookies or candy here and there.
Everything I do has to be quick because their attention span is short and trying to cook with them can be nightmarish. This toffee is super quick and easy so it wins the mom approved award.
- 1 sleeve of cinnamon graham crackers
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and tightly fill the pan with graham cracker squares. If some break or aren't perfect don't worry about it. You won't be able to notice in the end.
In a saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar. Bring mixture to a boil and allow to boil for three minutes. Immediately pour mixture over crackers using a spatula to spread it around evenly.
Bake for 5-6 minutes. It will be bubbly which is fine. Spread chocolate chips across the top and once again use a spatula to spread evenly as they melt. Sprinkle with pecans.
Allow toffee to completely cool for a few hours or overnight. Speed up the process by placing the pan in the refrigerator. Cut into small pieces and enjoy!
