Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

I had some graham crackers that I needed to use up (and had the rest of the ingredients already on hand), so I decided- what's not to lose? It really easy to put together, and the end result? WOW. These were SO GOOD. Definitely sweet, but oh so good! Since they are rich, I would suggest cutting them into small squares, but I kept going back to the pan. And then another time. And then again. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I threw my graham crackers into my food processor and pulsed until it resembled crumb texture)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or slivered almonds (I used walnuts)
  • 11.5-oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cut up 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter into Tablespoonfuls.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter. 
  3. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven.  (I baked mine for 8 minutes.) 
  4. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup (2 sticks) butter and 1 cup brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Make sure to take it off the stovetop immediately once it starts boiling. 
  5. Pour immediately over baked cookie base. Bake for 10 more minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes, until chips are shiny and soft. Spread the softened chocolate evenly over the top. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  7. Cool before cutting into bars.
