Toffee Graham Crack Bars

So last Christmas, my neighbor brought over a box of yummy treats for my family to enjoy…super thoughtful! I opened the box and BEHOLD, I laid eyes upon these little toffee graham cracker thingies (I didn’t know what they were called). I had never seen or tried Toffee Graham Crack before but I ate one and I was hooked! Confession: I ate every single one and my husband (or kids) never even got to try one. That was just me being helpful though :). I didn’t want them to get addicted like I was! So I set out on a search to find out what these were and apparently everyone knew about them but me! I guess everyone keeps this little addiction to themselves too. So I will be nice and share these Toffee Graham Crack bars with you…but you have been warned!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups butter (that’s 2 and a half sticks)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups of brown sugar (light or dark – whatever you have is fine)
  • 3 cups of chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 box of Graham crackers (14.4 oz)

First pre-heat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mats. If you don’t do this, you will be cleaning crusted sugary goop later on and no one wants to do that when you could be sitting around eating your Toffee Graham Crack Bars instead.

Then line your baking sheet with your graham crackers. I have THESE large baking sheets. They’re great because  I don’t have to make so many batches since they’re so large. I fit all of the graham crackers on the sheet except for 3 so I just gave those to my kids to eat. Thanks Coco and Ash 🙂Toffee Graham Crack

Then go ahead and chop your pecans so you aren’t panicking later while your butter is hot. Toffee Graham Crack

In a small pot melt your butter on medium heat. Once your butter is melted, add in your brown sugar. I have this super awesome spatula that I wanted to share with you but I can’t find it anymore. I searched and found THIS ONE that also has measurements conversions on it 🙂 I can’t tell you how many times this has come in handy! Toffee Graham Crack

Stir your butter and sugar over medium heat until it begins to bubble. Once it’s bubbling, stir it for about 2 more minutes.

After it’s been bubbling for 2 minutes, remove it from the heat and add in your vanilla extract and chopped pecans and stir it together. Then very carefully, pour your mixture over your graham crackers. Toffee Graham Crack

Carefully spread the mixture over your graham crackers. It’s ok if it’s not perfect. The mixture will spread a little bit in the oven. Toffee Graham Crack

Bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes (12 if you like it a little crispier). Take them out of the oven and cut them when they are still warm. You can cut them along the graham cracker lines or you can just cut them like a crazy person like I did! Toffee Graham Crack

Let them cool and enjoy! I like to snack on them for a sweet little treat after dinner or if I’m feeling REALLY adventurous I’ll serve myself some vanilla ice cream and crumble some of these over the top and drizzle with caramel sauce…but I know you would never do something so sinful 😉

    Just a quick question, did you roast the pecans before chopping them?

      I do not roast them before I chop them 🙂 They get a warmed in the oven while the bars bake and it brings out the flavor 🙂

      Hi Amanda! I just use the regular honey maid ones. Either the honey or cinnamon flavor works fine 🙂

        Would unsalted butter be ok you think?

          If that’s what you have then go for it! They will still be great 🙂 you can always add a little dash of salt to the butter if you’d like too!

    Thank you for posting an oldie that I’d forgotten about. A coworker brought these in about 25 yrs ago and gave me the recipe. I made them once and somehow…forgot about them! I’ll be adding the ingredients to my shopping list foe holiday treats this year. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
