What is Graham Cracker Toffee?

This graham cracker toffee is loaded with caramel and chocolate flavor. The ingredients are simple and the process to make this treat is so easy.

The graham crackers are topped with a boiling hot mixture of brown sugar and butter. This creates the delicious toffee layer. After baking, everything is coated with milk chocolate chips and nuts. It gets all ooey gooey and then you spread it over the toffee.

Once it hardens, you break it apart in pieces for a great recipe. It is absolutely one of my favorite candy recipes and only takes about 15 minutes. The recipe is truly effortless but turns out so delicious.

Ingredients for Graham Cracker Toffee:

Ingredients needed - graham cracker sheets, butter, brown sugar, chocolate chips, pecans
  • Graham Cracker Sheets
  • Butter
  • Packed Brown Sugar
  • Package Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Chopped Pecans

Variations and Addition Ideas:

  • Different Nuts – We used pecans in this recipe, but you can also use sliced almonds or walnuts.
  • Sprinkles – For a fun and festive treat, top with sprinkles for the holiday your celebrating. This makes a great Christmas Crack Recipe.
  • Chocolate. Try using white chocolate or dark chocolate. Another tasty idea is to top with chocolate and then drizzle white chocolate on top.
  • Change the Crackers – Instead of graham crackers, try saltine crackers or you can use Ritz crackers. Yum!  Either of these would be great options for this toffee recipe.

How to Make Graham Cracker Toffee:

  • Step 1. Prepare Oven and Pan – First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Next, line a jelly roll pan with foil. Spray with a non-stick cooking spray.

Step 5. Melt the chocolate and spread all over the crackers. I used a spatula to evenly spread the chocolate.

Step 6. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Then refrigerate to allow the toffee to harden. You do not have to add nuts if you don’t care for them.

Toffee Graham Cracker Tips:

  • Pecans – The pecans are optional so feel free to omit them all together. We are divided and some in our family love them and some do not. You can even top half of the toffee.
  • Use Jelly Roll Pan – Make sure you have a jelly roll baking sheet for this recipe. This is really important. 
  • Cookie Sheet – You can use a large baking sheet as long as it has sides.  You don’t want the sides pouring off the edges of the cookie sheet.
  • The crackers should touch – Make sure to arrange the cracker as closely as possible to each other. This will prevent the toffee from seeping through making it hard to crack.
  • Boil the butter and brown sugar – If it is not cooked long enough, the toffee will be soft and not harden.
  • Line the pain with foil –  It is so important to line the baking sheet with aluminum foil. This makes clean up easy. You can also use parchment paper or a baking mat. Clean up is much easier if you do this.


Can you use other toppings?

If you want to try something besides nuts or maybe in addition to, the ideas are endless for toppings. You can use your favorite chopped up candy as well. 

M&Ms, Heath Bar or Butterfinger would all be delicious on this toffee.
Also I have melted white chocolate before and drizzled it over the top.
The combination of white chocolate and milk chocolate taste amazing and decadent. Peanut Butter would also be a good topping.

How to store?

Store the leftover toffee in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  Place parchment paper in between the single layers so they don’t stick to each other.

You can also store in an air tight container.
If graham cracker toffee is at room temperature, the chocolate will melt.

    Super easy and quick dessert to make. My 10 yr old made this by herself as part of her practical living school work, with help taking out of the oven.
