Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Break each graham cracker into 4 equal pieces, creating 48 total. Arrange graham cracker pieces closely together on a baking sheet.
  3. Melt margarine in a heavy pan over medium heat; add brown sugar. Cook and stir mixture until boiling and frothy. Boil for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and fold in pecans. Pour caramel mixture over graham crackers, spreading evenly.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until caramel mixture has baked into the graham crackers, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet immediately and cool on a sheet of aluminum foil.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • It is very important that the crackers are placed very tightly together so they do not move around when the mixture is poured over them. It may be necessary to put extra graham crackers around the edges to prevent them from sliding.

At first I thought this wouldn't turn out well, but after sitting for several hours, it really tastes great! Sweet, but isn't that the point? My caramel sauce turned out a little grainy, but I'll overlook that this time. I used one packet of graham crackers in a 13x9 pan to make them. These make nice bite-size candies! Thank you very much, Mary Smith!

absolutely terrific... I sprinkle the nuts on after I pour out the toffee onto the crackers. So great to give as a small gift in a tin to neighbors, etc.

This recipe is soooo delicious and very easy to make! Took me all of about 10 minutes to get these in the oven. I used butter since I didnt have any margarine and they came out perfect! The secrect is to get those crackers as close as possible because the mixture can run off - but you can maneuver it a little once its on the crackers. A keeper recipe for dessert in a flash!

Don't use anymore nuts than called for unless you increase the butter and sugar.Can be too dry when baked.
