HOW TO MAKE GRAHAM CRACKER TOFFEE:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the graham crackers, touching onto the prepared sheet tray.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepot, add the butter and brown sugar. Stir constantly until the butter and sugar has melted.
  4. Still, stir constantly and allow the mixture to come to a boil. Once it is at a boil, boil for 1 minute, and continue to stir.
  5. Immediately stir in the pecans and then pour the mixture all over the graham crackers. It will not fully cover the graham crackers; that’s okay.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Once they are done baking, immediately sprinkle with the toffee bits. Gently press the bits into the caramel, do not use your hands but a spatula since the caramel is very hot.
  8. Allow the pralines to come to room temperature, and then break them into smaller pieces that are easy to eat.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

No, you can use light brown sugar, but dark brown sugar gives a richer flavor.

Feel free to try out some different things with your toffee mixture. Though, I do always recommend you try the original first!

That way you have a baseline to compare yumminess!

You can get plain or with chocolate, either works great! If you like chocolate, go for the ones with chocolate.

Otherwise, the plain ones are just as tasty. In this case, it’s all about preference.

Maybe you want to try both. Are you ready for some buttery toffee?

That makes it even more of an easy holiday treat. Less work on the big day!

Whatever you think might go well with graham cracker sheets and toffee. Maybe a little vanilla extract with the sugar!

  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top
  • Chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts
  • A drizzle of melted chocolate
  • White chocolate chips for a different flavor
  • Crushed Heath bars for extra crunch
  • Peanut butter chips for a peanut butter twist
  • A sprinkle of sea salt for a salty-sweet combo
  • Dried fruit like cranberries or raisins
  • A drizzle of caramel for double caramel goodness

I always like to have options for you. It’s an easy candy recipe to change up!

  • Unsalted butter instead of salted (just add a pinch of salt)
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of toffee bits
  • Saltine crackers instead of graham crackers for a saltier base
  • Vegan butter and dairy-free toffee for a vegan version
  • Gluten-free graham crackers for a gluten-free option
