Guest Post - Graham Cracker Toffee Bars

This DELICIOUS recipe comes from Sarah at A Thrifty Mom!

Thanks, Sarah

When I was little I was addicted to sugar...but now that I am an adult I am more excited about a good salad, than dessert. But this recipe is one of those that still makes me want to eat the whole pan, I LOVE them!


Start out by smashing one package of graham crackers ( not the whole box just one of the clear packages inside)


Once you get the crackers all smashed up, put in the bottom of a 9X13 pan

pour one stick of melted butter on top


Take a fork and make sure the cracker crumbs are well coated with butter


Then press down in a flat even layer in the bottom of the pan.

Place in an oven at 350 degrees for 12 min

this will create a crust


While still hot out of the oven pour one can of sweet and condensed milk ( not evaporated)

Pour in a thin even layer over the whole crust


Top with what ever you like, I use about 1/2 a cup of the following

  • chocolate chips
  • peanut butter chips
  • nuts or ( i use sunflower seeds, my friend who had a daughter allergic to nuts made it this way and I LOVE it so, I have never switched back)
  • coconut
  • M&Ms candys


While still hot place back in a 350 degree oven and bake for another 25-35 mins till edges are golden brown. Let cool at least 30 mins.....and enjoy


This is what Matt and I did to the pan in ONE night......I am telling you this is one of my favorites! Hope you enjoy them too.

I've made these for years and they're an absolute favorite! I've changed up the toppings and it's always wonderful. Sooo bad, but sooooooo good! LOL

These are delicious! We call them magic cookie bars and make them every year at Christmas. My kids devour them.
