Nutty Toffee Graham Crave Bars are a take on the hugely popular toffee Graham bars. Buttery and crunchy with chocolate, cranberries and salt. Crave-worthy!
I’m not kidding. They are sitting in my freezer right now and I’m trying my hardest not to go down and get one. Or three. They are definitely worth the calories, but I know there’s a limit.
I make some version of these every year before the holidays. They keep for a long time in the freezer and I like to have a few things to pull out when I need them. (In our family, we rarely serve just one dessert). So it’s a great make-ahead recipe and perfect for gift giving.
There are only four core ingredients – Graham crackers, butter, brown sugar and chocolate – and tons of blogs with similar recipes. I recently came across one in the Autumn 2017 Food & Drink magazine (love their food pics) and decided to use their idea of the two-chocolate drizzle. I used Graham instead of soda crackers and added dried cranberries to help balance the sweetness. But, honestly, the basic recipe is fool-proof delicious. Any tweaks are just a bonus.
I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like these bars. And they take less than 30 minutes to make, not including cooling time. Enjoy!
Tailor To Your Taste
- Use whatever toasted chopped nuts you like – hazelnut, almonds, pecans, pistachios. I used macadamia in the pictures.
- Use raisins or other dried fruit instead of dried cranberries. Or leave out altogether.
- Use soda crackers instead of Graham crackers. Or use Matzo for a Passover version. See our Famous Almond Caramel Crunch.
