You only need five ingredients to make the toffee: graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and almonds. We like to use Annie’s Honey Grahams, they are our favorite!

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.

In a saucepan on the stove, boil the butter and brown sugar together. Pour the hot mixture over the graham crackers. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let the chips sit for about two minutes or until they start to melt.

Use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the grahams.

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!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    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!!

  2. 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. i would just increase the time you simmer on the stove. Ive had that happen when the ingredients didn’t all melt on the stove before pouring them over the crackers.

    2. 4 stars
      Mine also. Think I should have timed 4 min once it started boiling. Maybe it even said that. And…duh, forgot to spray foil. We’ll see if it comes up. Think I prefer with a bit of choc and salt (like saltines) to balance out sweet.

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

  3. Hi. I tried to make the toffee with margarine. It’s not working! The margarine and brown sugar Don’t come together in the pot. Is it the marg?

      Made it tonight. So simple and easy. This will be a holiday treat for many years to come.

    I have not tried this but know it is amazing. I do have a question (stupid), I dont eat salteens so can Kebler Club (like Ritz) crackers b just as good?

  5. 5 stars
    I made these last night and they turned out so good. I let them bake for nine minutes instead of eight which made them crispy. I’m so happy with this recipe. Thank you for sharing such a easy and tasty recipe.

    This is an amazing recipe and I make it every year. It comes out perfect every time… until today. My chocolate chips were a couple of months past the due date but I decided to use them anyway. They didn’t melt. It is a grainy sludgy mess. So I am just commenting to warn anyone tempted to use those past due chips. Don’t do it!

    1. Who leaves chocolate chips around long enough to go two months past their “use by” date!?!?

    2. 4 stars
      Made these with brand new chocolate chips and they didn’t melt. Glad I tested just one chip in the corner. Still looks good and will taste awesome, just won’t look like the picture.

  7. I just made this and let it cool overnight. I thought it would be more crunchy (hard like a candy), is that normal? Still tastes great but was expecting a bigger crunch.

    1. If your pan is too big use aluminum foil to create the correct size. just bring the foil up a bit to create an edge.

  8. 5 stars
    Delish! It does taste to me like a graham cracker with yummy topping (toffee/chocolate/nuts)…the butter/sugar mixture was fluffy after 4 minutes…I was expecting it to soak into the graham crackers more? (the areas that did get more soaked tasted more like toffee) My question: what is the consistency of the butter/sugar when applying it to graham cracker? (mine had to be spread). Thanks~!

  9. If you use Ghirardelli chocolate chips, you will not have any problem melting them. If you use Nestle Toll House chips, you might encounter problems.

  10. 5 stars
    Amazing! Loved this recipe. So easy to make and delicious. Question- what’s the best way to store these?

  11. I have been making this recipe for years sometimes the bottom is full of caramel but, most of the time it isn’t ! I want to know why??? My family likes it all at the bottom as well..

    I’ve been making and selling this for a decade but with a few changes: quarter cup white sugar and quarter cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil and then simmer for four minutes. Bake at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes. And have more fun than plain milk chocolate and almonds. Try white chocolate and chopped Butterfingers, dark chocolate with cranberries and dried cherries, milk chocolate with chopped Oreos… Combinations are endless.

  13. 5 stars
    These are delicious but my layers always separate, when you pick them up most of the graham cracker toffee part falls off… any ideas?

    1. That happened to me until I stopped chilling the pan in the fridge. Martha Stewart has a similar recipe, but she recommends letting the finished dessert cool at room temperature. The fridge makes the chocolate become too brittle & more likely to separate from the graham crackers. Hope this helps!

    .cooking time not long enough- didn’t reach hard crack. Gramm crackers mush- made before different recipe was great!

    I followed your recipe but had to make a few ingredient changes due to my grandson’s allergies. Substituted vegan margarine for the butter and used allergy friendly chocolate. It turned out perfect and tastes fantastic.

  16. 5 stars
    I altered the recipe ingredients a bit – used half butterscotch chips and half chocolate chips. Instead of nuts, I crushed pretzels and spread them on top of the melted chips. Great modification if there are nut allergies and I thought it tasted awesome!

    This is a WINNER! I’ve made it several times. I’ve even given it as gifts. One person asked if I sold it (hmm…). After making it a couple times, I decided to kick it up a notch (since I’m in the Southwest) and I add a bunch of Slap Ya Mana Cajun Seasoning. This gives it some heat and saltiness too. It’s been a big hit!

    1. Store in an airtight container on the counter. You can also keep in the fridge or freezer for longer!
