Hi friends!

I’ve been making these Graham Cracker Toffee Squares for as long as I can remember. They are a staple on every tray of Christmas cookie tray I make and I have a tin of them in my fridge for most of the month of December as I can’t resist making a new batch as soon as I run out.

This dessert is really nothing new. I’m sure a lot of you have made your own versions but over the years I feel like I’ve perfected mine and it seemed like it was worth sharing! While I definitely wouldn’t call this healthy, it does use significantly less butter and sugar than most similar recipes and tastes just as good (in my opinion!

What toffee for graham cracker toffee bars?

I get a lot of questions about what toffee I use in this recipe and here’s what I buy: Heath Bits O’Brickle English Toffee Bits. They have them in the baking aisle at most grocery stores. You can pretty much use the whole bag for this recipe. Use one heaping cup on top of the graham crackers and sprinkle the rest on top once you add the chocolate.

I love topping mine with Christmas m&ms to make it festive but really you could top it with whatever you want. When my mom used to make it she would top it with slivered almonds and extra chocolate chips.

If my kids had their way, ours would also have Christmas sprinkles on it. Speaking of kids….this recipe is so easy even toddlers can make it! So you’ve got no excuse not to try!
