I better enjoy the last few weeks of my pregnancy and my newly found sweet tooth!!
Because once she gets here – someone is going to have to pull that sweet tooth!!
I’ve always been a fan of sweets but I would usually rather have a second helping of the savory dish at hand and pass on dessert.
I had whipped up these Graham Cracker Toffee Bars last Saturday to go with the Vegetable Beef Soup and I ate my one (good-sized) bowl, pushed it aside and stuck my hand into the plate of Toffee Bars.
Yep, I ate six, without even moving from my chair.
I know I’m having unusual cravings but seriously folks – they are THAT good!
Graham Cracker Toffee Bars
- 24 Graham Crackers
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper (you will need 2 or 1 if you half the recipe like I did) and lay out graham crackers
In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and sugar, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil – careful not to scorch. Stir in pecans.
Pour melted butter/sugar over crackers and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Allow to cool completely and the break apart.
