Graham Cracker Toffee

Yesterday at work we had a bake-off. My friend, Gretchen, made these fabulous toffee bites. I hope she doesn't mind, but I have to post this recipe.

2 sticks butter
1/2 c. sugar
chopped pecans
1 box graham crackers

Melt butter and sugar together on stove and boil for 2 minutes; arrange graham crackers on a foil lined cookie sheet, pour hot mixture evenly over the crackers, sprinkle with pecans, Bake in oven at 350 for 8-9 minutes!! Cool and break into pieces

If you want to add chocolate I found this recipe on
■About 12 whole (24 squares), (honey) graham crackers (perforated) broken into quarter sections
■1/2 lb butter (2 sticks)
■3/4 C light brown sugar
■3/4 C chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
■3/4 C Chocolate chips
■1T milk
Line up the 44 pieces in a jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet with low sides), sides touching. Over low heat melt butter. Stir in the sugar – simmer (not boil) about 10 minutes – until it melts. Occasionally stir. Pour mix over crackers – spread evenly. Sprinkle w/nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Cool & separate onto aluminum foil.

Over low heat melt chocolate chips and stir in milk. Top crackers with ribbons of melted chocolate by dribbling off a spoon. Add more milk if chocolate is too thick to form a ribbon. Package and give away to friends!
