It's very common to get or give toffee during the holidays, isn't it? It's easy, totally yummy, and can be made in big batches. But you can kind of only eat a little at a time. It gets all stuck in your teeth. Not these.
These squares are awesome! All the goodness of chocolate almond toffee with a little not-too-sweet crunchy relief from graham crackers and the slightest hint of salt to get the saliva flowing. I am seriously considering just giving boxes of these away; they hit the spot every time. Plus, hello, 20 minutes a batch!
Salted Toffee-Chocolate Squares
13 full graham crackers
1 bag (8 oz.) toffee bits
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped toasted natural almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (4 oz.) bittersweet chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)
3/4 tsp coarse salt
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place graham crackers in a single layer on sheet, edges touching. Sprinkle toffee bits and almonds over graham crackers.
2. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and butter to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and cook at a rapid simmer, swirling pan occasionally, until mixture is syrupy, 2 minutes. Immediately pour over graham crackers. Bake until sugar topping is bubbling, 12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate and salt over graham crackers. With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into 2-inch squares. Let cool completely on sheet on a wire rack. (Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.) Makes 24 squares
