Graham Cracker Toffee

20111218-172909.jpgOne of the great (and terrible) things about the holidays are all the amazing sweets and treats that seem to show up non-stop. It’s a time of year to indulge and enjoy and to make your loved ones feel, well, loved. As I’ve stated before I’m not the best baker – I don’t have the good baker juju, what can you do? So a few years ago I tried my hand at candy making. Fudge, caramels, peanut brittle- so much fun to make and even more fun to hand out. This recipe is an easy intro to homemade candy, and is so very delicious.20111218-155738.jpg{line a buttered cookie sheet with graham crackers}20111218-155920.jpg{melt equal parts sugar and butter to make caramel}20111218-160250.jpg{cover crackers with caramel and bake for 10 minutes, until caramel is bubbly}20111218-160441.jpg20111218-160533.jpg{melt some good chocolate and drizzle over toffee}20111218-160633.jpg20111218-160716.jpg{chop toasted almonds and sprinkle on top}

For this recipe I used:

  • 1 (2 packages) box of graham crackers
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of golden brown sugar
  • 1 12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1 fistful of toasted almonds (or use any nut you prefer)
