Graham Cracker Toffee

Need a quick and easy baked treat?

This Graham Cracker Toffee is so simple. And simply irresistible!

Although this might appear a bit unassuming, even when piled high, these little squares are truly their own best kept secret. These crunchy treats, loaded with a buttery caramel crunch, are boast-worthy material.

This recipe was floating around the office a number of years ago, held high with tons of praise, promising to be a keeper. And my family fell pretty hard for it. I’ve since made a few changes to that original recipe, but it’s still all about being simple and simply irresistible.

  • 1 box (14 ounces) graham crackers (or enough to make a single layer on a jellyroll pan)
  • ¾ cup finely chopped roasted, salted pecans (I like Trader Joe's!)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes (such as Maldon sea salt flakes)


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 12" x 17" jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
  • Place graham crackers on the bottom of the pan, in a single layer, tightly together. Break crackers as needed to fit into the pan to fill the pan completely. (This is a great job for young kids!)
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and drizzle mixture evenly over graham crackers.
  • Immediately sprinkle chopped pecans over the top.
  • Place pan in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until bubbly, golden, and toasty. Remove pan from oven, to a cooling rack, and immediately sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Cut with a large knife, or break apart with your hands, to form pieces about 2" in size. Remove pieces to wax paper and let cool completely. It will have better, crunchier texture after cooling for at least an hour. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

    I can’t believe how easy and delicious these look. Wonder how they would be with a little coconut sprinkled on top? Thanks for the recipe.

    These sound really good – I have been trying to bake one special treat for the kids every week, and these would be great to add to the list :-)

    Oh boy! You had me at “buttery caramel crunch”, off to see if I can find some graham crackers to make these now!

    1. They were the talk of the office for quite some time! So will this be your dessert, with the Spicy Shrimp Pasta you’re making?! :)
