Buttery toffee, semi-sweet chocolate and pecans over graham crackers – make this super easy recipe, perfect for the holidays or anytime!
Holiday baking is upon us. I will tell you one item that is going on my short list — this Graham Cracker Toffee!
I was scouring through some old recipes from cookie exchanges gone by, and came across this one. It’s been “hidden in plain sight” for so long! I decided I had to give it a test run before I committed to it. Honestly, it’s one of those recipes that sounds too easy to be as good as it is. I’m not sure why I always manage to talk myself into difficult, thinking that is the only way something will turn out fabulous!
This toffee is perfection. It’s light and flaky graham cracker bottom, made with Honey Maid Grahams, totally seals the deal. I have always been a fan of toffee, but I am not a fan of sticky toffee. This particular recipe is the best of all things – the light and flaky bottom, the buttery toffee center, topped with semi-sweet chocolate and chopped pecans.
Our kids love Honey Maid Grahams, don’t yours? We always have a box in the pantry, whether I am making a pie with a graham cracker crust, or our family is roasting s’mores in the back yard around the fire pit. My pantry isn’t completely stocked without a box.

Honey Maid is celebrating National Adoption Day this Saturday, November 21. I have a sister. No, she isn’t my sister by blood, but she is the only one I have. Teresa and I have been friends for over 30 years. She has been there for every happiness and every sadness in my life. My sister, she was adopted. Her mom adopted her when she was a baby and gave her a home and a life that she loved. I am so thankful to her Mom for adopting her, I cannot imagine my life without her.
Do you have someone special in your life that was adopted? Maybe you adopted your children? Maybe your spouse is adopted? I am so grateful for my sister. What do I do for those I love? I bake for them!
