With Butters’ fur in every crevice.

Graham Cracker Toffee

So crisp, so buttery and just so darn addictive! A must for the holidays. And it’s SO MUCH EASIER to make than you think. Promise!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14.4-ounce) package graham crackers

  2. Spread graham crackers in an even layer onto the prepared baking sheet, covering the entire sheet.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar vanilla and salt over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until butter has melted and mixture is almond brown in color, about 10-15 minutes.
