Toffee is my candy weakness.  I’m posting all my favorites this week.  All of these said favorites just happen to be the most addicting Christmas treats ever!  I guess I like really rich, sinful desserts around this time of year, but who doesn’t?  It’s the only time I can eat all of these goodies and not feel an ounce of guilt.  ‘Tis the season!

This is one recipe from my blog that I’m ordering you to try!  It’s so simple to make and tastes like heaven.  There is a reason it is also called “Christmas Crackby some people – it is addicting!  I love how some of the easiest treats are the ones that taste the best (like these Oreo Truffles I shared earlier in the week).  P.S.  Don’t miss the food processor giveaway within that post!  It will be an early “Merry Christmas” to you if you win 🙂

Spreading the chocolate on the graham cracker toffee for Christmas.

This toffee recipe makes for great gifts for your friends, family or neighbors, and the perfect finger-food dessert and/or a tasty snack just to have around for any occasion. You really can’t mess this recipe up – I promise!  Well, I’m sure somebody could manage it, but it would be very difficult to do.  The best part about this stuff is that you probably already have all of the ingredients in your pantry.  That is always nice when you need a dessert to bring somewhere on the fly.

I’ve seen many versions of this toffee that have nuts added on top of the melted chocolate.  If nuts are not an issue for your family go ahead and add them – either way this will taste delicious!

This recipe for graham cracker toffee is super easy to make and delicious. This will become a new holiday dessert tradition in my house!
  • Graham crackers (depends on size of baking sheet, I used 14)
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Lay graham crackers in a single layer on baking sheet.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pot, place butter and brown sugar. Heat over medium-high heat, stir frequently while ingredients melt together. Heat to boiling and boil for 3 minutes while stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  3. Carefully pour all of the hot butter/sugar mixture over graham crackers. Spread mixture evenly on top of the graham crackers until all areas of graham cracker have been covered by the mixture. Place in oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Allow chocolate chips to sit on top of the hot graham crackers for about 3-5 minutes so that they can melt. Spread the melted chocolate chips evenly on top of the graham crackers with a knife or spatula.
  5. When completely cooled, break into irregular pieces. The messier the better. Place on plate for serving.

    I have yet to try making my own toffee – your version sounds amazing! Maybe you should add some marshmallows on top and turn it into a s’mores toffee? 🙂

    Yep this is easy and quick. And man do I need that right now. I am not stressed, BUT it seems like I have to and I want to bring goodies everywhere this year. Sigh. Makes me behind. I should be in the kitchen baking now for tomorrow.
