5-Ingredient Peppermint Toffee
If there’s one thing I love to enjoy during the holidays, it’s toffee. It’s a weakness of mine and something I can never resist. This peppermint toffee bark is a favorite, as well as classic homemade toffee, peppermint bark, and Christmas crack. Yum!
This graham cracker toffee has five basic ingredients: graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, white chocolate and candy canes. The candy canes on top add the perfect peppermint crunch. If you’re feeling extra festive, you can even dye some of the chocolate red and drizzle it on top. :)
It is very similar to my saltine cracker toffee, but is made with graham crackers and white chocolate. I halved the recipe and I also cook it a minute longer to get it a little crunchier.
If you’re a peppermint fan, you have to put this recipe and homemade hard candy on your baking list. I have already made 3 batches and plan to make more for friends and family as Christmas gets closer!
Only 5 Ingredients!
- Unsalted butter
- Brown sugar
- Graham crackers
- White chocolate melting wafers
- Candy canes
How to Make Graham Cracker Toffee
- Line pan with graham crackers. Cover a large half-sheet jelly roll pan with foil, then spray with nonstick spray. Line the pan with graham crackers until completely covered.
- Make the caramel. Melt butter and sugar in a medium pot over low/medium-low heat (continue stirring). Then bring to a boil over medium-heat for about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
- Spread caramel over crackers. When the mixture is bubbly with a golden amber color, remove from heat and pour over crackers. Then spread out evenly with a knife.
- Bake in oven. Place pan in oven and bake at 325°F for 7 to 9 minutes. Then remove from oven and let cool slightly.
- Add toppings. Melt the chocolate melting wafers until smooth, then pour over caramel mixture and smooth with a spatula. Immediately sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top and then place in freezer for about 15 minutes to harden. Then break pieces off the foil and enjoy!
For another fun variety of graham cracker toffee, swap the white chocolate with milk or dark chocolate and then sprinkle some chopped almonds on top.
Once you break the toffee into pieces, make sure to store in an airtight container or bag. It will stay fresh for up to 1 week if stored properly.
