Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread to check out these Graham Cracker Toffee Bars.

EASY DELICIOUS GRAHAM CRACKER TOFFEE BARS ON TODAY SHOW

Graham Cracker Toffee Bars on TODAY Show

When I saw the ingredients on the TODAY SHOW, I quickly looked the recipe up on TODAY.com.  I saw how simple it was to make these Graham Cracker Toffee Bars.  They looked so easy to make, and I had the ingredients.  So, I could not resist seeing if they were as good as everyone was raving about them.  The butter, brown sugar, and pecans are a basic recipe for toffee.  I did add a teaspoon of vanilla.  You make the toffee, pour it over Graham Crackers, and then bake it.  

How did these Graham Cracker Toffee Bars turn out?

The results, It comes out a crunchy buttery sweet can’t get enough treat.  Al Roker was right!  These Bars are ” A Little Bit of Heaven.”   If you are from the south, you may think it tastes a little like a pecan pie kicked up with butter and crunch.  You will have to try these easy bars for yourself and let me know what you think.

These Graham Cracker Toffee Bars only include four basic ingredients including graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, and pecans.  

The most difficult part of making this candy is making sure you watch the candy and when it starts boiling only cook it for two minutes.  Next, you will add the pecans and quickly pour this candy mixture over the graham crackers and bake it.   You will bake it for 10 minutes.  Cut while still warm and enjoy.

    I’ve been making these bars for the past 40 years. My mother in law gave me the recipe and she made it for years before. The only difference is we used sunflower seeds instead of pecans. The sweet and salt are a wonderful combination. My daughter asked for a written recipe so I looked online tto see if there are any changes/improvements and was glad to find this site. This is as close to the one I use as I’ve found. I just forgot how high the candy thermometer should be before removing from heat. I go by a visual and my daughter would like a bit more specific (being she doesn’t know what to look for). The pecans sound wonderful, but I think I will stick with sunflower seeds…softer for those of us who have sensitive mouths.

    Thank you for posting it!

  2. Your bars sound great! I can’t wait to try them
    I have been making a similar dessert for years using saltines!
    Line a greased sheet pan w/saltines (1 sleeve),
    Melt 1 cup butter in saucepan & add 1 cup brown sugar. Bring to boil – stir and boil for 3 minutes. Pour over saltines, carefully spread as necessary.
    Bake 5-7 minutes @ 400 degrees. Remove from oven & pour 12 oz. chocolate chips over & spread. Refrigerate until set & cut in squares!

    • Debbie,

      I just put these Graham Cracker Toffee Bars in a air tight container. They were gone in about 2 days with my bunch. They were really easy to make and taste YUMMY!
      I have never tried to freeze them. I not sure if that would work.
      Blessings,
