Ingredients

  • 9-12 graham cracker sheets
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips about 2 cups
  • 1 cup toffee bits, chopped nuts, M&Ms, etc your choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet (approximately 11x16 or something similar) with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place graham crackers in a single layer on the cookie sheet, breaking as needed for them to fit. Set aside.
  • Place butter in a medium saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Melt, then add the sugar and water. Stir to combine. Place a candy thermometer in the mixture and bring to a boil. Cook over medium-low heat until the mixture reaches 255°F. Do not stir. The mixture will turn golden brown.
  • Once it reaches 255°F, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour over the crackers in prepared pan and spread to coat evenly. Bake for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the hot pan. Place back in the oven for 2 minutes, or until the chocolate chips are melted (but they’ll still be holding their shape).
  • Remove pan from the oven. Spread chocolate to coat evenly. Top with desired toppings. Chill to set, at least 1 hour. Break apart and serve or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks

Notes

  1. You can use any toppings you like for this bark. In the photos, I used toffee bits, sliced almonds, and mini holiday M&Ms. You can also use chopped peanut butter cups, chopped pecans or nuts of any kind, candy cane pieces, chopped cookies/Oreos, or anything you like.
  2. To use peanut butter, melt 1/4 cup peanut butter in the microwave (heat about 20 seconds). Pour it over the chocolate once you've spread it and then swirl.
  3. Get a candy thermometer here.
  4. White chocolate chips will NOT work with this method. To top with white chocolate, melt it separately in the microwave and spread it over the top of the cooked toffee.
