Smores Toffee

IMG_5558I bought my husband a fire pit for Father’s Day two years ago with visions of smores dancing in my head along with campfire songs and family bonding. Needless to say, he envisioned hours of assembly, reams of newspaper, drying out wood and tons of blowing…and thus we’ve used it twice since! So for those of you that yearn for the taste of smores sans the campfire, this is the recipe for you!! This is a variation on cracker toffee, if you’ve ever had it. The difference being, in the “regular” recipe you use saltines instead of graham crackers, chocolate chips instead of chocolate bars and nix the marshmallows! This could also be referred to smores crack because it’s insanely addictive and should be bagged up and given away. Just sayin’!

20150827_163432 The key to this recipe is the two minutes of stirring the butter and sugar to create the caramel.  Don’t skimp!  This is what it should look like when you pour it over.

Smores Toffee

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Graham Crackers (I used 2 packages of the Schar's Gluten Free)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter of choice (I used Earth's Balance butter sticks)
  • 4 Chocolate Bars (chopped)
  • 2 cups Mini Marshmallows

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2
Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray for good measure.
Step 3
Line the cookie sheet with the crackers so they are touching.
Step 4
Put the butter and brown sugar in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes until the butter has melted. Then stir the mixture for 2 minutes continuously until the butter and sugar have incorporated and look like caramel.
Step 5
Pour the caramel mixture over the crackers and bake for 8 minutes.
Step 6
Remove the crackers from the oven and turn your oven to broil. Sprinkle the mixture with marshmallows and broil for 1-1 1/2 minutes until toasted. As soon as you remove from the oven, sprinkle the chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) on the crackers and as it melts, spread it a bit.
