I will show you how easy this toffee is to make, just in case you don’t believe me:)

First, line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat (parchment paper or foil will work too). Add a layer of graham crackers.

Sprinkle with chopped almonds. If you prefer pecans, go ahead and use them, both are tasty!

Let the toffee sit until the chocolate hardens. You can place the pan in the freezer or fridge to hurry up the process…or you can place the pan outside in the cold. Just make sure the pan is safe, you don’t want any wild animals stealing the toffee:)

When the toffee is set up, break it into pieces and enjoy!

The recipe makes a huge pan of toffee which is a good thing because it is ADDICTING! Once I start eating, I can’t stop. I usually make two pans, one for us and one to share with family and friends.

You can put the toffee in a festive tin or box and give it to your neighbors, co-workers, teachers, friends, and family for Christmas. It is also a great treat to serve at holiday parties or just keep some on hand for when guests drop by!

This Easy Graham Cracker Toffee is one of our favorite holiday treats and we hope you like it too! And make sure you try our Saltine Cracker Toffee too! The saltines add a nice saltiness that you won’t be able to resist!

Ingredients

  • 15 full Annie's Honey Graham Cracker sheets
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds or pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat, parchment paper, or aluminum foil. If you are using aluminum foil, spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Place graham crackers in a single layer, touching, on the large baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together over medium-high heat. Bring butter and brown sugar mixture to a boil. Simmer for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour mixture evenly over graham crackers. Bake for 8 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top of the graham crackers. Let the chocolate chips sit for 2 minutes so they have a chance to melt. Spread melted chocolate with a knife or rubber spatula. Sprinkle almonds or pecans on top.
  4. Let the graham cracker toffee sit for about 2 hours or until the chocolate hardens. If you are in a hurry, you can refrigerate the toffee for an hour, or freeze for 30 minutes. When chocolate is set up, break the toffee into pieces and enjoy!

  1. I followed this recipe to a t but when you bite into the cracker the toffee part seems grainy what could be done to prevent this and I would appreciate a reply

  2. 5 stars
    I made this recipe and people absolutely love it. I add 1/4 cup
    Of toffee chips instead of pecans or any nuts. It’s scrumptious. 
    Unfortunately, I gained  5 pounds and am only going to make it during the holidays.  It’s totally addictive.

  3. Hi, I was do anxious to try this because it seemed so easy. I ran into a couple of problems though. The chocolate chips wouldn’t melt and it didn’t look as if there would be enough. I added some more chocolate and then put it under the broiler. I was fearful of scorching but the chips still didn’t really want to melt. As I spread the the chips it was picking up the butter sugar mixture. Has anyone else had this problem?

    1. 3 stars
      I made this according to directions. The chocolate chips (after melting and spreading) hardened in a “chunky” looking way- not smoothly. What did we do wrong? Caramel was crispy but something just didn’t seem right in the end.

  4. My toffee (butter and brown sugar) was crystallized and tasted sugary. Did I over cook or under cook it? I boiled it for 2 minutes. 

  5. These are amazing! It was a great idea. They were delicious, and a fun learning experience for baking. The easy graham cracker was amazing! Everything was just right.

  6. Love this, but wishing I could keep the butter/brown sugar liquid from running underneath the crackers? Did yours do that?

  7. 4 stars
    I like this toffee recipe, I adjusted the cooking time with this recipe. I used my saltine toffee time for the butter and brown sugar as well as baking it in the Oven. Chocolate chips melted fine and spread evenly.

    I’m using this treat in combination with my saltine toffee for gifts!!

  8. So disappointed. I used to make these but the baking time was 15 minutes. These came out grainy and did not harden. Waste of good ingredients.

    1. Salted butter is fine, it will be a little more salty, but I don’t think you will notice a huge difference.
