S’mores Toffee

LAST UPDATED: Mar 18, 2021 | PUBLISHED: Jan 08, 2015 | By:

S’mores are a fan favorite – a delightfully gooey combination of chocolate, toasted marshmallows, and graham crackers. They are already perfect in their campfire version, but I’ve made them even more perfect in this S’mores Toffee recipe.

S’mores are fun to eat fireside, blended into a frozen custard, made into S’mores Pie, cookies, incorporated in cheesecake and brownies, and Hot Chocolate Bombs. Now, as a toffee, you have one way more way to get your s’mores fix.

S’mores Toffee is quick and easy to make, and you can make a whole pan of them to feed a crowd, even if that crowd is just your family! They’re simple enough that everyone will love them, but unique enough that everyone will be amazed.

This recipe is a little twist on my elementary school favorite – easy toffee made with saltines. And if you need more S’mores recipes, try my reader favorite Peanut Butter S’mores Pie, S’mores Cupcakes and learn how to make S’mores on the Grill.

S’mores Toffee bars have a caramel-y graham cracker base with the signature toffee crunch thanks to the addition of melted butter and brown sugar. The middle layer of chocolate is rich and creamy. The final touch of marshmallows toasted on top completes the decadent dessert.

These S’mores Toffee cookies are perfect for any party or potluck. It’s a good thing they’re fast and easy to make because you might want to make 2 pans because nobody can resist this dessert. But be sure to leave a few at home for you to enjoy!

FAQs

What graham crackers should I use?

The crust will only be as good as your graham cracker, so use a quality cracker. Choose your favorite tasting graham cracker to get a flavor you will enjoy in your S’mores Toffee.

Should I crush my crackers before I use them?

No, this recipe is so easy because you lay whole graham crackers on the bottom of the pan. This method also keeps your s’mores toffee sturdy for eating.
