Recipe: Turtle Graham Bars

A few weeks ago this was the FoodNetwork's 12 Days of Christmas cookie and I don't know about you but I don't know what's NOT to like about this recipe. Graham crackers, butter, sugar pecans and chocolate. That's all it is. 

Super easy and fast. These are easily going to be my new "go-to" cookie when cookie exchanges come around.

Ingredients

  • Approximately 14 graham crackers
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Pinch of salt
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat. Arrange the graham crackers in a single layer on the lined baking sheet.

Put the butter, brown sugar, pecans, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. 

Boil for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. 

Pour the butter mixture evenly over the graham crackers and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl placed over simmering water. 

Pour the chocolate over the toffee-covered graham crackers and spread evenly. 

Chill completely in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Cut into bars.

  1. toffee and chocolate is one of my favorite combinations, and thank you again for having another recipe i can see myself being able to make relatively easily! I really like almonds, so I think I might try to substitute them for the pecans.:) I'm definitely looking forward to the Holiday Cookie Exchange next year! :)
