GRAHAM CRACKER TOFFEE BARS

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

I just had to try this Graham Cracker Toffee Bars because Al Roker from TODAY SHOW was making such a fuss about it.  They turned out as good as he said.  I am going to teach you how to make them.

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 Graham Cracker Toffee 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 a minute.  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.

  • Graham crackers
  • Cup butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet, then place graham crackers, so they cover the entire cookie sheet. I used 16 x 12-inch baking sheet
  • Melt butter using medium-high heat. Add the brown sugar.
  • Stir brown sugar into butter until melted. Bring to a slight rolling boil about one minute.
  • Cook and stir for a minute.  Add the chopped pecans.

Notes

Tip:  As soon as you remove the candy from the oven, try using a spoon to spread the sugar mixture out some.

    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!

    • Jayne,

      Thanks for sharing your recipe on Recipes for our Daily Bread. I will have to try it. I hope you get a chance to try the Graham Cracker Toffee Bars I saw on the TODAY Show. They were really delicious.

    • 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,

  3. They turned out great and were so easy. I will be making them again and I don’t want to wait til Christmas. These would be good anytime.
    As for the new year, I have an electric pressure
    Cooker and haven’t used it much. I would like some
    Recipes for it to try.

    • Beverly,

      Thanks for leaving me a message and letting me know you enjoyed the Graham Cracker Toffee Bars. You made my day!!

      I too have a pressure cooker that I do not use very often. I have been researching new recipes for it.

      Blessings and have a great weekend and Happy New Year!!

    • Jennifer,

      Both of my batches did not cover the entire cookie sheet, BUT IT all works out after you bake it. After you bake the Graham Cracker Toffee Bars, it spreads out and evens out some. It did not affect the taste, they still turned out great. The TODAY SHOW recipe did not say what size cookie sheet they used. No one from the TODAY SHOW answered this question.

      Let me know how you like it!
      Blessings and have a great Christmas!!

  4. Made them today because of the short ingredient list and saw the today show briefly about them. YES!!!! So stinking easy, sooo stinking good!!!
    I didn’t have pecans on hand
    so just used peanuts turned out just fine! Next time I’ll use pecans and sprinkle a bit of dark chocolate on them! Thanks Diane!!!

      I hope you are doing well. You are amazing with all your kids and you still have time to look at my blog and leave me a comment. I am glad you liked these Toffee Bars and the peanuts worked.
      I seriously thought about adding a layer of chocolate too.
      Blessings Always,

      • I love recipes–any. I collect cookbooks, but I am a creature of habit and tend to make the same things over and over. Every once in a while, I add new items to my repertoire.
