This SHOULD have been good but was not. First, the directions for the graham cracker crust were all wrong. There is not enough butter to make the crust form, and the cracker crumbs stayed just that... cracker crumbs... and did not adhere to the bottom of the toffee. So much for giving this as a gift.
Secondly, there was not enough toffee to cover the crumbs. It was a mess trying to spread it to the edges and I was not able to get any toffee into a couple of the corners.
Third, the completed bars were WAY TOO SWEET -- and I like sweet things, but this was sickly. The graham cracker crust with the brown sugar put it over the top. It would be much better with more of a minimally-sweetened shortbread base. More cookie-like and not sweet and crumbly.
I can't give this away along with my other Christmas cookies this year so am looking for a better recipe.
